PKGBUILD: Gringotts

Just installed Arch today and noticed that Gringotts was not included.  So I created a package for Gringotts and its dep libGringotts:


And here are the PKGBUILD files:


One quick note about actually running Gringotts.  It seems that it behaves weird with modern glibc implementations or something, because I ran into this same problem on my Gentoo install.

GLib: Cannot convert message: Could not open converter from 'UTF-8' to 'ANSI_X3.4-1968'

(process:17350): GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (1000)

Gringotts version 1.2.8 (libGringotts 1.2.1)
(c) 2002 Germano Rizzo <>

released under GNU General Public License (GPL) v.2 or later
See COPYING or go to

(gringotts:17350): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.

(gringotts:17350): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib

(gringotts:17350): Gdk-WARNING **: cannot set locale modifiers

(gringotts:17350): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

Here is an ugly workaround:

strace gringotts > /dev/null 2>&1

From what I gather strace is setuid root so thats what "fixes" it (if you run gringotts has root you don't have that problem).  So strace is the cleanest way to do it.  If anyone knows how/why this problem is caused then please share!

And of course feedback on the PKGBUILD and other stuff is welcome.

Enjoy the app!

NOTE: The CS department at this school can be sticklers for bandwidth, so if you can't get the packages I'll figure something else out
