The version string doesn't conform to the VCS packaging guidelines as described in ArchWiki, namely in including the release version string if it's defined:

Specifically for packages with public releases or repository tags like this one, $pkgver must include the latest tag, the number of commits since the tagged release, and the abbreviated commit name. For the WoeUSB repository right now, the derived $pkgver value should be:


A pkgver() function definition that generates this version string can be found on the "VCS packaging guidelines" page in ArchWiki, as the last example in the article's Git section. Modify that example's sed command by adding an additional script (i.e. 's/^v//') to remove the leading "v" found in the upstream repo's tags.

Here's a diff of the PKGBUILD implementing the correction:

@darkfm after some more debugging looks like not package fault good if possible error provided associate with fat32 max file size limitation in code... Taking off out of date flag...

@baqtor @darkfm No, 'gksu' is not a dependency: 1. GNOME (and I think other DE too) has a graphical su front-end integrated, so even if gksu isn't installed in my system, I get the pop-up window which asks me for the password... 2. a user can simpky lauch "sudo woeusbgui"

thus, gksu isn't a dep but an optional dependency!

@drbuckingham: That's likely to be an upstream bug

Also depends on gksu

Also depends on ntfs-3g

It also seems to depend on "wget", because it spits a warning about no wget being available when running the CLI version.

There're some missing dependencies:

* dosfstools
* parted

@mihails-strasuns That don't work for me:

==> Starting pkgver()...
==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, hyphens or whitespace.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: r561.v2.1.3-46-ga6e69df
