Most of the packages that “require” it are actually Electron apps that copy&pasted their dependency lists from elsewhere or failed to update them: Chromium (and subsequently Electron) haven’t been dependent on this for years.

If you want to help, you can ask the maintainers of all those apps if they really still need gconf.

None that I use still need it (spotify and hamsket-bin), and their maintainers removed the superfluous dependency.

If you got build issues, please make sure

  1. base-devel group is installed [1]
  2. you are not using a broken AUR helper like pacaur. See

If the build is still not working, use clean chroots [2] to build it.

@IslandC0der no problem after updating the system

IslandC0der commented on 2021-04-03 18:08

@xiaotong sorry for the late response, but I still can't reproduce, sadly :(

Thanks for reporting :)

Hi @ashkol, please try running the following command before compiling: pacman -U{,runtime-}1.66.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst, and make sure to change gobject-introspection in makedepends to gobject-introspection=1.66.1-1.

The latest gobject-introspection version is only compatible with python 3.9, so downgrading it to the one for 3.8 should fix it.

ashkol commented on 2021-02-17 11:55

Kindly solve or advise me solve the following error. Using python version 3.8.5.

This package still needs gobject-introspection as a dependency. Install this if encountering some M4 file missing errors.

generaleramon commented on 2020-11-16 18:08

builds fine on aarch64

IslandC0der commented on 2020-10-24 12:05

@HunabKu I can't reproduce unfortunately, for me it downloads just fine.

Seems like a temporary issue; are you still having it?
