Since updating to qt5.9(testing) some shortcuts are broken, the number keys (1-4) can't be used anymore to rate the cards as hard/good/easy anmore. strg-z is also affected.
Downgrading to non-testing qt5.8 fixes the issue.

Don't know if this is an anki issue or an qt issue though. Can someone confirm?

The relevant bug that caused 5.8 to be marked as "broken" is now closed

And it's been backported to arch as 5.8.0-5

Unfortunately the version check of this package checks for 5.8.0 and has no way to know that arch's 5.8.0-5 contains this fix. So until 5.8.1 happens, the workaround from the previous comment is still needed (remove the offending line)

This is currently broken as the git version of Anki expects qt5-base to be 5.7 and the current version as of writing is 5.8.

Apparently the devs believe qt 5.8 is broken.

You have two options:
1) roll back qt5-base and qt5-webengine to 5.7
2) comment the offending line of code in aqt/ line 43 (

Edit: I should add that if you modify you will likely run into the issue the devs ran into.

[adam@rakka ~]$ anki

Exception: Your Qt version is known to be broken.

Is there anything we can do about this?

Probably needs qt5-webengine doesn't work on my system otherwise
