Before running makepkg, you must do this:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D1483FA6C3C07136

See below for details.

For the GPL license just copy that on your terminal: gpg --recv-keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290

@yar I got two work-around

1. As gnupg is failing to download the public key it can be done manually by this command:
curl "" -o - | gpg --import

2. Gpg key verification can be skipped by replacing a pkgbuild line which is not recommended as tor is a very crucial piece of software. The line is:
validpgpkeys=('EF6E286DDA85EA2A4BA7DE684E2C6E8793298290' 'SKIP')

Process 1 is safe, 2 is risky and totally your choice. Peace!

@beroal Sorry, I confused the fingerprints with the keys itself. Now i understand it and have no problem with this packagebuild :)
Still, it would be nice if there would be a mechanism in makepkg to embed the whole key or at least instruct it to download it...

@kerberizer good for you, but i was using 2.1.17-4 at that time.
It contained incorrect patch, and so didn't work. In fact, it was silently fixed without a version bump:

Anyway, thanks for your feedback. The command from pinned message should work now for everyone running the latest gnupg.

Please let me know if there are other tests or information that might help you find the cause of the problem you encounter.

@kerberizer obviously, you've already had the needed gpg key imported while running an older version of gnupg.
Try (re)moving the ~/.gnupg directory, killing dirmngr (or rebooting) and have a lot of "fun" with the latest gnupg.

What bothers me most is that people are not able to read even two comments back and try downgrading gnupg and then reporting back if it worked or not.

There are two types of commenters here: 1) It works for me, fix your problem and 2) It doesn't work for me, and i can't read.

Just to note that I've never had any issues with this package. I know this isn't too helpful for those who do face problems, but at least it's an indication that the source of the problems is something system and/or network-specific, and not the package itself.

tscs37 commented on 2017-01-26 07:22

The GPG command specified in the comments does not work. gpg will fail with "no key server available"

kyak commented on 2017-01-25 18:55

Downgrading to gnupg-2.1.16-2 and running gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D1483FA6C3C07136 has helped.

What a crappy piece of software.. Can't even handle itself.
