Here's a patch requested by @Schmeidenbacher until the maintainer can get to it. You'll have to add it to the PKGBUILD w/ checksum as appropriate.

I also have to request a patch, or change of the PKGBUILD as mentioned by remyoudompheng. Since the update to enchant 2.x this package will not build without the mentioned change.

remyoudompheng's change results in a working build which at least works with the gnucash package which is still dependent on this package here. Thank you.

I have a question:
How different is this package from the official `webkit2gtk` from the repository `extra`? I'm compiling it for a few hours now and my computer is working hard on it so I want to be sure it is absolutely necessary. I'm installing it only as a dependency for `pywebkitgtk`.

You will need a patch for enchant 2.x: I am using a sed command but it could be a proper patch as well.

sed -i s,enchant_dict_free_suggestions,enchant_dict_free_string_list,g \

Or rather you could read the AUR wiki page and see how things work.

Could you add 'bison' and 'flex' to the required build-time dependencies? (Using pacaur -S webkitgtk)

Get a non descriptive compile error. Does this compile for anyone?

@chawlindel libwebkitgtk-1.0.0 is missing from the package you linked. I believe the correct package is:

chawlindel commented on 2017-10-02 18:44

Compiling this is just unfeasible. I had problems getting downgrade to work, but manually downloading the binary from the archive worked just fine.
I'm just gonna use it for the 'remarkable' package anyway so I don't care about security.

@rast Thank you, problem solved.
