pacaur/cower not finding libalpm.so

I’ve upgraded Pacman to 4.2 then I can’t upgrade the packages which I have been installed from AUR. The Terminal tell me that:

cower: error while loading shared libraries: libalpm.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is the problem is missing libalpm.so.8?
I’m trying to locate it with the command:

$ locate libalpm.so.8
/usr/lib/libalpm.so.8
/usr/lib/libalpm.so.8.0.2

It’s existed, then we need rebuilt cower to help it detect libalpm.so.8. But I can’t install any packages from AUR, the way to done is manual download PKGBUILD then makepkg.

Someones has the error: ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!. To solve it, add the missing PGP signatures into your Pacman Keyring:

$ gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys F56C0C53

However, all custom (jpeg or png) wallpaper images are displayed in black and white once they are set as wallpaper.

Paper GTK Theme: A Beautiful Material Design Inspired

Paper Theme

Paper is a modern GTK3 desktop theme suite. Its design is mostly flat with a minimal use of shadows for depth.
The theme looks pretty nice with traditional titlebar/menubar/toolbar applications, but it doesn’t compare with the experience it offers for header bars apps. Paper has been developed primarily for GNOME and other GTK3 desktops, legacy desktops will not have the same experience. Also, the GTK2 theme still needs some work. Here is theme preview application for GTK2
