If when opening a password-protected wallet, you get an error that say something about "mpx", you may have to manually downgrade/install the python-ecdsa package version 0.13.3-3 from the Arch Linux Archive. The newer versions of the python-ecdsa package change some function calls and break Electrum, so until Electrum is fixed, the best way to get it to work is to downgrade python-ecdsa.

If you do not know how to do that, download this file:

https://archive.org/download/archlinux_pkg_python-ecdsa/python-ecdsa-0.13.3-3-any.pkg.tar.xz

and then run "sudo pacman -U /path/to/python-ecdsa-0.13.3-3-any.pkg.tar.xz".

That will manually downgrade the package. Please check back for updates to Electrum, since as a general rule, you don't want to be holding onto outdated cryptography packages and should update as soon as possible. I will monitor upstream and update here as soon as they work with the newer ecdsa version.

As of 2.9.3.4, I have added a PGP signature check to the PKGBUILD, since the github release now provides one, so you may need to import the PGP key in order for the build to succeed. (Or modify the PKGBUILD to not do a signature check.) The correct PGP key is 0xE44EAD1F0BB016963229A6A304E9BCFB4E777CA3.

Edit for version 3.1.2 upgrade: The PGP key appears to have changed to 0x64D9042053AA1391D6C0B4A7425776E2F9E5BAB8. I am in contact with the developers to ensure that this new key ID is correct.
