Is there any reason to use QT4 still? The upstream default is QT5 now and it works well on Arch.

It should be fixed now. Thank you for the feedback.
FYI, unofficial user repository is available, please see pinned comment (I pinned just now).

It's not reproduced on my system.
Recently, was under maintenance mode for some hours.
Please try again.

During makepkg I got these sha1 errors for now:

==> Validating source files with sha1sums...
mozc ... Skipped
jsoncpp ... Skipped
gyp ... Skipped
protobuf ... Skipped
japanese_usage_dictionary ... Skipped ... FAILED ... FAILED

I'm not sure if it is safely bypassed.

ponsfoot commented on 2015-05-18 15:05

Remove $SRCDEST/mozc if it existent (again). The upstream force-updated existing commit hashes.

NOTE: pkgrel is not changed because this change doesn't affect the existing 2.17.2095.102 users.

Thank you for the info.

We need to revise the commit id (_mozcrev) in PKGBUILD.

ponsfoot commented on 2015-05-16 08:25

If you use mozc 2.16.2072.102-1 or earlier and build mozc yourself, remove $SRCDEST/{mozc,gyp} before building 2.17.2095.102-1.

ponsfoot commented on 2015-02-09 10:51

Build preparation (ln -sf `which python2` $srcdir/python in PKGBUILD) seems to failed.
Try again. It's not reproduced on my system.

If you don't have a strong insistence, try to use unofficial user repository:

Note: Please show me full build log using from the next time.
