First of all, thank you for kalu. Using this program with trizen makes Arch package management so much easier. I use KDE and I was getting core dumps using kalu 4.1.0-1. The crashes occurred when trying to close kalu at shutdown using a script.

I replaced it with kalu-kde 4.1.0-3, and now it shuts down correctly when using a shutdown script.

Right, a fix was just pushed to branch next. Thanks for the report.

Latest news in site contains an extra space before the title: " The end...".
It causes kalu to go into loop of "10 unread news" although the correct title (with the extra space) is written in news.conf

Pour les francophones: Editez le pkgbuild en rajoutant " --with-news-rss-url=" sans les " " après ...prefix=/usr pour avoir les nouvelles en français :)

Yep, working now, thanks :)

Are you using the latest PKGBUILD (4.0.2-2) ? It should have a proper URL for the new AUR version.

AUR search doesn't work.
I suppose you need to change the RPC search code, if that is what you are using.
Had to do the same with my custom AUR downloader script.

1) all you need about icons support should be found in the man page
2) No need for sudo, no. kalu's updater does auth via policykit, so you'll likely need to have a polkit authentication agent running for things to work however.

I have two problems:
1) I cannot change the tray icon
2) Authentication is failing. Maybe kalu is using sudo? How can I change that?

I was having the same issue as adam777 with the 4.0.1 update. After building branch next and installing it I can verify the fix works and notifications are no longer empty.
