I've been updating to 4.2.2. Looks like the problem is fixed in that version.

the program was reporting an issue that a helper binary could not be found. not sure what the true issue was but what i did was:

cp /usr/lib/mediawriter/helper /usr/bin/helper

I had an issue with the application running and just hanging. I updated, upgraded, and restarted and the problem was still there. I ran it through ltrace and bam I found it couldn't load QtQuick.Dialog. I did a repo search and I had extra/qt5-quickcontrols2 installed but not extra/qt5-quickcontrols. I installed the latter and now it starts up just fine.

I tried installing the mediawriter today, and the following errors occurred:

I installed the AUR package as a part of the dependencies manually, as it had previously errored out on me complaining about it.

Sounds like an issue with .SRCINFO. For some reason, the current version shown diverges from the one made on my local repository. I have resetted it and bumped the pkgrel.

mediawriter was missing from my menu list & the mediawriter command wouldn't work, I can't even uninstall mediawriter from the AUR! It tells me it doesn't exist when I do pacaur -R mediawriter, if I do pacaur -S mediawriter it will ask me if I want to reinstall it...
I compiled it from the github repo & now I have a menu entry + the command works.

It is very difficult to debug if you don't provide exact logs. Fortunately, I did notice that I accidentally added a typo when adding the MAKEFLAGS environment that I overlooked during a diff check. I have updated it and it should build correctly.

after `fatal` errors I get:

[!] Unable to build 'mediawriter' - makepkg exited with code: 2

please help me with that.

I download using `trizen` aur helper.

Oh, woops. How could I have missed that... I have added udisks2 and storaged (aur-dev) as optional dependencies.

GeneMarston commented on 2017-09-08 19:22

Thank you! Also it seems that without Udisks2 it won't let you do anything besides downloading images, so it might be a good idea to add it as an optional dep as well :/
