Has installed, but fails to start. May be an issue opening the MariaDB.

QtWebEngine::initialize() called with QCoreApplication object already created and should be call before. This is depreciated and may fail in the future.
Attribute Qt::AA_ShareOpenGLContexts must be set before QCoreApplication is created.

I'm getting the following error when trying to install this. I have MySQL installed, so I don't know why it's happening.

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

I'm trying to build this with yay on archlinux 32, and it fails with this message:

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.17/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:164 (message):
  Could NOT find KF5 (missing: NewStuff) (found suitable version "5.68.0",
  minimum required is "5.41.0")
Call Stack (most recent call first):

  CMakeLists.txt:39 (find_package)

I have knewstuff 5.69.0-1.0 installed (not 5.68 like it says) - do you have any pointers?

@coxe87b it happens because taglib-extras is a dependency on AUR that can't be installed automatically by makepkg. If you use an AUR helper it do the work for you, otherwise you need to install taglib-extras manually. I recommend you do that installing it with --asdeps in order to use a weak reference to the new package in case you want to uninstall amarok in the future.

It would not make the package for me by default using makepkg -si as it threw an error saying that it was unable to solve dependencies. I had to manually install dependencies; libgpod, liblastfm-qt5, mariadb I then had to manually get the dependency "taglib-extras 1.0.1-7" through the AUR and make that package first. Only then was I able to proceed with the makepkg of amarok.

This package isn't building sucessfully for weeks. Did I miss something?

Latest problem:

CMake Error at /usr/lib64/cmake/Qt5/Qt5Config.cmake:28 (find_package):
  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5Script" with
  any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "Qt5Script" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
  "Qt5Script_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If
  "Qt5Script" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has
  been installed.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:31 (find_package)

The latest successful build (2019-10-01, 2.9.0.r376.457fbda25a-1) won't launch:

amarok: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Thank you for updating the package. Few issues:

  • Lyrics are not working, On a debug console I get (for example):

amarok: BEGIN: void LyricsManager::lyricsLoaded(const QUrl&, const QByteArray&, const NetworkAccessManagerProxy::Error&) amarok: [WARNING] [LyricsManager] No track belongs to this url: " Sky Full of Stars" amarok: END__: void LyricsManager::lyricsLoaded(const QUrl&, const QByteArray&, const NetworkAccessManagerProxy::Error&) [Took: 0s]

  • Activating the Wikipedia applet will shoot CPU use through the roof.

As per another comment the above will be nice to have working but both issues seem to be upstream.

@Tyomix I don't know if the functionality you describe is related to scripting. If you tell me which scripts you are using I can try to fix them, but being not an expert I can't promise anything.
