It looks like this will fail to build with links. It will however build with w3m or lynx.

This package requires "lynx/w3m/links", please add one to the dependencies or all three as "or" dependencies.

I managed to repair this, but it took an unreasonable amount of time to do something as trivial as repair the header of an xml file. Here's the make error: /usr/bin/xmlto txt desc/xdg-su.xml No way to convert HTML to text found. Try either installing text web browser(lynx/w3m/links) or use option --with-fop After abort, edit <your build dir>/aur-xdg-su/src/xdg-su-xdg-su-1.2.3/scripts/desc/xdg-su.xml The top section is broken. I have never used XML in my life, but after some Google and tweaking, I decided the top needs to look like this: <?xml version="1.0"?> <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href=""?> <!DOCTYPE refentry PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.1.2//EN" "" [ ]> ... From same desc/ directory run: xmlto txt desc/xdg-su.xml --skip-validation If it still doesn't work, you may also need the --with-fop flag to invoke the Java beast, which I had to do. It should convert it fine now, doing the PKGBUILD's job for it. cd back into the base <tmp dir>/aur-xdg-su/ directory and run: makepkg -si You should now have it packaged and installed by pacman. This is the first time I have ever attempted to use XML or xmlto or fop, nor have I ever fixed a PKGBUILD before, so if this disgusting hack repair is a bad idea, don't use it and let me know. Sorry for the long comment, didn't think a GitHub comment would be seen by anyone from the AUR.

Following is a PKGBUILD that works for the 1.2.3 release:

1.2.1-2 is placing its manual pages in /usr/man instead of /usr/share/man.
