Installed fine with the xulrunner192 from AUR located here:

xulrunner took awhile to compile, but it worked. I also get the xulrunner Permission denied error TuxLyn shows, but rssowl still works 100% as far as I've seen so far.

seems like 2.1.4 will be out soon, rssowl says there is an update and there is a folder on sourceforge, but no download, yet.

Maybe this will be useful for somebody. I have x86_64 and the browser would not work. See this patch combining recommendations below (pablox, MatejLach,

On line 27 on your pkgbuild says:

echo -e "#!/bin/sh\n\n/usr/share/${pkgname}/RSSOwl" > "${pkgname}"

The problem with that is that if you pass some argument to rssowl (that is in bin directory), it won't pass it to the actual executable located in /usr/share, so that line should say:

echo -e "#!/bin/sh\n\n/usr/share/${pkgname}/RSSOwl \"${@}\"" > "${pkgname}"

The "@" is a special variable that contains every argument passed to the script (very useful for wrappers like this one).
