Since most build problems seem to stem from webkitgtk and building it takes ages I threw it out as suggested. Here's my spin on it.

Does it really need that old webkit version?
It's a shame this is in such a sorry state since such a long time.
It doesn't build since many months.

This should be upstreamed, but in the .desktop file, so in the sources pkg/wxlua-svn/usr/share/applications/wxlua.desktop, or after the installation here "/usr/share/applications/wxlua.desktop". "Exec=wxluaedit %F" must be replace by "Exec=wxLuaEdit %F"
sed -i s/Exec=wxluaedit/Exec=wxLuaEdit/ /usr/share/applications/wxlua.desktop

In the PKGBUILD, this should be added to have the icon working :
# icon file
install -Dm644 ../art/wxlualogo.xpm \
Dependence webkitgtk2 should be replaced by webkit2git, just works fine.

With the current dependencies, I've on my system:
* webkit2gtk 2.16.6-1
* webkitgtk 2.4.11-6
* webkitgtk2 2.4.11-6
But this still doesn't compile. webkitgtk2 isn't needed anymore, but with or without it, the two lines added by the previous people need to be added in cmake parameters of the PKGBUILD to have the compilation working :
-DwxWidgets_COMPONENTS="stc;gl;html;aui;adv;core;net;base" \
-DwxLuaBind_COMPONENTS="stc;gl;html;aui;adv;core;net;base" \
Add it juste before:

Not going.
Adding lines from the comment below solves the problem:

-DwxWidgets_COMPONENTS="stc;gl;html;aui;adv;core;net;base" \
-DwxLuaBind_COMPONENTS="stc;gl;html;aui;adv;core;net;base" \

As far as zerobrane-studio is concerned, the dependency on webkitgtk2 can be removed by adding
-DwxWidgets_COMPONENTS="stc;gl;html;aui;adv;core;net;base" \
-DwxLuaBind_COMPONENTS="stc;gl;html;aui;adv;core;net;base" \
in cmake invocation. This was taken from the zerobrane-studio

It looks like webkitgtk2 does not exists anymore, so this package is broken. (edit: now it's in the AUR)

Thanks a lot migerh, that did the trick.

I fixed the issues mentioned in the forum post. Let me know if it works now.

Yeah, this stuff can be pretty time consuming sometimes. I'm aware that I don't know everything there is to know about AUR packaging... If anyone encounters any issues let me know and I'll take a look at it as soon as I can.

Hi again,
I contacted the aurutils developer about this issue and he suggested that it is a problem with the package.

It would be great if you could find the time to review the package with regards to the current packaging guidelines.
I can't tell you what should be changed exactly since AUR changed so much since I maintained packages, the upload procedure alone changed at least twice in the meantime. Keeping up with this stuff was one of the reasons I quit maintaining.
