In the PKGBUILD file, line 14 says


This fails when updating since the archive is suffixed with .tar.gz, not .tgz.

Changing that line to


and running makepkg --install manually solved the issue

Adjusted source url to the github repo.

Thanks for pointing that out. Unfortunately github seems to be down, so I cannot check.

It appears the project (or the active fork) was moved from Bitbucket to GitHub in January 2018. It would be great to have the source URL updated (and note the bump to 0.7.1):

pygtk seems to be a dependency of this package as well.

I had this textext installed with `pstoedit`, but there appears to be a bug in how `pstoedit` calls Ghostscript. The -dDELAYBIND flag has been deprecated.

Installing `pdf2svg` allows textext to work around this issue by not using the `pstoedit` backend.

This seems to depend on python2-lxml.

I made a PKGBUILD for that fork.

There seems to be an actively developed fork on bitbucket:
