• Update issue with webkitgtk (enchant dependency)

    I could not update webkitgtk due to the following error. Any solution? Thank you.


  • if you do in terminal, and do sudo pacman -Syu , and possible pastebin in a service would be more clear…

  • what is pacman -Qdt ? does show webkitgtk there… then remove webkitgtk by sudo pacman -R webkitgtk

    if its needed by a program it will not remove unles you force anyway

    webkitgtk is kinda old. mayby its replaced already?

  • also it tolds required by noe probably remove it

  • @ringo32 said in Update issue with webkitgtk (enchant dependency):

    sudo pacman -R webkitgtk

    Ok thank you I removed it. Honestly I do not remember why I had it installed. LOL

  • probably installed with a package ‘enchant’ but removed webkitgtk as depency i gues so it died , if you see pacman -Qdt it had no owner anymore

  • Oh yeah, Yaourt is no pacman ; i use yaourt -Syua to update my aur package but i tend not to mix it up :)

    yaourt is pacman frontend to use aur…

  • well…I am not too diligent. Thank you anyway.
