@bsdice Thanks for your feedback. I added the cython0 package to makedepends.

As is good custom in python-land (sarcasm), the upgrade to "cython 3" broke compilation. But there is a cython0 package which works. Maintainer might want to add it to makedepends. Since this breakage is never-ending, Nix and Rust obviously with superior concepts.

@bsdice Thanks for your feedback. Since there is no tag for 5.5.1 on the upstream git repo, we can still don't have the patch here. But you can use blink-git package to get the last commits from the upstream git repo.

@mwberry Thanks for your feedback. I follow your option 1.

@loxothrone Thanks for your feedback. I updated the package python-sipsimple. Reinstall it, so that it fixes the issue.

ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

i install require version from AUR but still doesn't figure out how to point Blink to it

blink depends on python-pyqt5-webkit and python-pyqt5. Although python-pyqt5-webkit provides python-pyqt5 and can satisfy both dependencies, the package pyqt5 from Extra also provides python-pyqt5. python-pyqt5-webkit conflicts with python-pyqt5.

Option 1: remove python-pyqt5 in favor of python-pyqt5-webkit. The downside of this is that python-pyqt5 is an official repo package, so it should be preferred.

Option 2: Find a packaging of python-pyqt5-webkit that only contains webkit / is not a superset of python-pyqt5 so that both can be kept.

Just another comment, in my private build I added from unreleased 5.5.1 this patch:

Recently had to replace a faulty 24" 1920x1200 display and went with a 32" 4K display. Without the patch the spacing of dialog items on my i3 desktop with Noto Sans 12 font was 'crushed'. With the patch there are some small items left like contact list and icons not scaling in high quality, but UI is perfectly usable.

To repeat my comment from years ago for anyone looking, this is imho still the best SIP telephony client on Linux.

@bsdice Thanks for your feedback. I updated the version and the dependencies

I just built the package but depends=... is missing 'python-pyqt5-webkit'. Please add it thanks.
