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.

TsuDragon69, gconf was actually deprecated years ago. Its last release was 22nd January, 2013. It's been superseded by GSettings and dconf.

Apps that are still being actively maintained should really have lost the dependency by now...

Wait, How are GNOME application settings handled now?

Hi @l4tt3, you need to install the base-devel group before building packages.
