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.

Neither of those things really sound like packaging issues. Maybe check upstream for issue reports?

aur/blink 5.1.8-3 (+12 0.11) (Installed)

just works fine !

With my Dark Breeze theme on Plasma I cannot see the contact's names.

Another point is the contact's status, I cannot see if they are online or not.

@mozo python-otr was missing python-cryptography. I already fixed python-otr. Please try again.
