@Airwan Honestly I don't expect this package to work. I'd be happy to accept patches via PR on Github or ever make somebody a co-maintainer if they show they can get it going, but it's a disaster right now. I'm not super motivated to fix it either because the upstream was broken 2 years ago when it was last updated and the situation has only deteriorated since (e.g. Python 2 is now past EOL). I'd love it if somebody got the upstream project in gear again and would be happy to build this from a fork if that's what it takes and one gathers some momentum. In the mean time the situation is pretty bleak for what was a promising little project (that I loved using).

Hi, "makepkg -si" ends with "~/uzbl/PKGBUILD: line 19: cd: uzbl: No such file or directory" and Return "ERROR: A failure occured in build()." Some hints? Thanks.

Heads up all: the last tagged release is actually pretty problematic. I suggest using uzbl-next-git at least until the next stable release).

I'm open to help on this package ... I've hacked on updates some but haven't gotten them to work yet. Ping me here if you have something!

Moved from the [community] repository. The WebKit2 support is still experimental and broken. See:
