Im trying to install leksah via cabal install leksah Im getting the following error:

Resolving dependencies...
Configuring leksah-
Building leksah-
Preprocessing library leksah-

    Could not find module ‘Graphics.UI.Gtk.WebKit.JavaScriptCore.WebFrame’
    It is a member of the hidden package ‘webkit-javascriptcore-’.
    Perhaps you need to add ‘webkit-javascriptcore’ to the build-depends in your .cabal file.
    Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.
Failed to install leksah-
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
leksah- failed during the building phase. The exception was:
ExitFailure 1

Any hints on how to resolve this? Or should a create an issue on github?

Thanks in advance

Same for me on Manjaro Linux
I tried to install manually the leksah .tar.gz by removing at the same time the offending line where webkit-javascriptcore is included as dependency, but it doesn't work (other errors thrown).

The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 7.10.3
cabal-install version
using version of the Cabal library

After posting here I found this thread which is seemingly related because it fixed the problem for me.
