Before running makepkg, you must do this (as normal user):

$ gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys torbrowser@torproject.org

If you want to update tor-browser from AUR without AUR helpers you can run in a terminal:

$ tor-browser -u

I was trying to install tor-browser using Manjaro pamac-manager, and it would get stuck "Checking for dependencies", then I followed @grufo 's comment which is pinned and recommends to run:

gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys torbrowser@torproject.org

After that I was able to install tor-browser normally through pamac-manager of Manjaro.

Thanks @grufo .

@grufo ah, I forgot I had TORBROWSER_PKGLANG in my ~/.zshrc. The value en_US used to work. Changing it to en-US sorted it out. Maybe replacing "_" with "-" in that variable would also make sense. Thanks.

@wknapik

All the PKGBUILD does is launching:

locale | grep LANG | cut -d= -f2 | cut -d. -f1 | sed s/_/\-/

If that results in a unexisting language it will download by default the en-US version (with a hyphen).

However, if you specify manually a TORBROWSER_PKGLANG environment variable, the PKGBUILD trusts you and skips all checks. That means that the only case where makepkg can complain about an unexisting en_US package (with an underscore) happens when you pass a TORBROWSER_PKGLANG=en_US environment variable to it (instead of TORBROWSER_PKGLANG=en-US).

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/9.0.2/tor-browser-linux64-9.0.2_en_US.tar.xz

The correct url contains en-US, rather than en_US: https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/9.0.2/tor-browser-linux64-9.0.2_en-US.tar.xz

@Ucak I have this problem too, so I decided to create an AUR package which uses tor service to download sources, you just have to make sure tor service is up and working.

Please give me feedback on this package, Thanks.

There are countries which internet is ~broken~ censored, so they (including me) can not use that upstream link (https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html). There was a github link for downloading it, a mirror. I think it was this https://github.com/TheTorProject/gettorbrowser but i am not sure. It may be a good idea to use the github link for this or creating a new aur package.

Also, I'm getting the following error from the error log of tor-browser:

I have no idea why it tries to bind 9050 ¯_(ツ)_/¯
