installing gnome-common did the job for compiling, but I cannot run the app. Terminal says:

"Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/gnome-news", line 86, in <module>
from gnomenews.application import Application
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/gnomenews/", line 59
GLib.mkdir_with_parents(CACHE_PATH, 0755)
SyntaxError: invalid token"

Thanks in advance for your help

Yes, the problem mentioned by DoctorJellyface still exists but the solution was to install the gnome-common package.

The problem mentioned by DoctorJellyface still exists and the workaround still works.

The source code moved away from GitHub and now GNOME News is developed under GNOME git website.

In order to compile the new source code, PKGBUILD maintainer should change URL variable to "${_gitname}" and source variable to "git://${_gitname}". I think that you should not change anything else. Please check all PKGBUILD data before updating it!

So, apparently I was wrong :P

appstream-glib is a make dependency and I already added it to the PKGBUILD. Thank you guys for the feedback!

Sorry guys, none of these packages you pointed out is needed to successfully compile gnome-news, because I uninstalled them all and makepkg still works.

I'll do some more tests later, because I still have no idea of what is causing the issue you're having.

I'll try removing the others and trying again.

Thanks! I already had all those packages installed, but it seems the only package from gnome-todo I was missing was appstream-glib, which made the compilation succeed after installing it. This should probably be added as a make dependency I think?

Hm, installed gnome-todo, which pulled in autoconf-archive-1:2015.09.25-1, gtk-doc-1.24-1, itstool-2.0.2-1, source-highlight-3.1.8-3, yelp-tools-3.18.0-1 and gnome-common-3.18.0-1, then tried to compile this again and it worked perfectly.

OK, this time it's this:

+ aclocal --install
+ glib-gettextize --force --copy
Copying file po/

Please add the files
codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
from the /usr/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

+ intltoolize --force --copy --automake
+ autoreconf --verbose --force --install -Wno-portability
