Thank you for pointing that out. Had a GPG issue though and makepkg refused to compile. I was getting "[don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=6b)" error when inputting the command:

gpg --recv-key 667132D0FBC52B37

I read somewhere that a new ~/.gnupg directory had to be created. After that, I went through the following commands with no resultant GPG errors:

gpg --list-keys
gpg --recv-key 667132D0FBC52B37
gpg --lsign 667132D0FBC52B37

Worker compiled without issues after that. (Not an Arch expert, just wanted to share my findings.)

Bump to version 3.11.0 and add the new GPG key from Ralph Hoffmann (See for details). If you have issues with the verification process, double check if you have imported and signed the gpg key.

gpg --recv-key 667132D0FBC52B37
gpg --lsign 667132D0FBC52B37

i believe the PKGBUILD is missing:
validpgpkeys=('A80FCCB31197764627778CABD582EEE06623F6B4') # Ralf Hoffmann
provided you've verified it, etc.

Worker provides GPG signatures for the downloads. Please add those to the PKGBUILD.

Interesting file manager. Need to try ...

@anika200: Your PKGBUILD does not change anything. There must be a problem on your side I think.

BTW: Bump version to 3.8.1.

At least on my system with Pacman v4.2.1 - libalpm v9.0.1 the build fails because of problems with the build().
This pkgbuild works for me, maybe it helps someone.

#build() {

# We need to disable the optimizations because of a bug in gcc
# (see for details)
# Ralf added a gcc constraint check to avoid compiling bad optimized code.
# Because we run a recent version of gcc, we disable the check, and
# disable also the compiler optimizations completely. Because the code
# uses some C++11 features, we need to set this explicitly.
# To bypass the pthread bug, the LDFLAGS is set here explicit until
# the bug is solved. See here for more detail and progress:
# CPPFLAGS="-O0 -std=gnu++11" LDFLAGS=-pthread ./configure --enable-xft --prefix=/usr --disable-cxx-check

# make

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
CPPFLAGS="-O0 -std=gnu++11" LDFLAGS=-pthread ./configure --enable-xft --prefix=/usr --disable-cxx-check
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install
