Is there any reason this is still flagged as out-of-date?

Good, since pacman 4.1 is in core, I'm gonna update the pkgbuild. Thank you for doing the conversion! ^_^

Well, as far as I know Arch users should always be up to date and since pacman 4.1 is in [core], we don't need to take care of pacman 4.0.3 anymore. But of course you can wait with the update, since the old build still works (but the pkgver won't be updated then).

It doesn't seem to work with pacman 4.0.3 out of the box though :S
==> ERROR: There is no agent set up to handle git+git URLs. Check /etc/makepkg.conf.

So I'm not sure if I should upgrade the pkgbuild yet or not.

Hey hut! In case you're interested, I've created a PKGBUILD for ranger-git, which supports pacman 4.1. If you like it, feel free to use it.

@everyone wanting Ranger with Python2 and official GitHub source, see:

Anonymous comment on 2011-08-30 07:48

@mkaito, ranger depends on "Python 2.6 or Python 3.1 with the curses module", so the user can chose between both. However, since python3 is the chosen default on Archlinux, it's best to use this one in the default PKGBUILD. You can always edit it to your liking and do a sed 's/python/python2/g' -i PKGBUILD as mentioned in the post befor yours. I also use ranger with python2.

Development seems to have moved to github (, and the PKGBUILD needs to be updated to use python2 instead of python.

since there are currently some problems with python (ranger can't open external programs for .jpg, .pdf, etc.)
as a workaround edit this PKGBUILD with;

sed 's/python/python2/g' -i PKGBUILD

going back to python2. that way it works just fine again.

as found here;

why? it works with python3 too.
To use python2 again, you can change the "python" line to "python2.6"
