Please add libxkbcommon-x11 as a dependency. Without it, running calibre gives this:

qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found. 
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. 

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, xcb.

I'm not sure you understand what the problem is or was. Try actually reading the wiki link, taking heed of the big blue notice.

Then realize this is an AUR package, and hence does not use pacman-key to check signatures.

tl;dr the AUR and the official repos are different. Also that bugreport is from today, and therefore didn't exist half a year ago...

A better answer would have been to send them to the bug report found I would think. Wiki wouldn't help

Arch Linux is not stackoverflow, and directing a person to the canonical source of authoritative information about the issue is very much a good answer in this community.

Especially because the frontpage of the AUR instructs new users to read the Wiki page, and Arch Linux is a distribution that expects users to read the documentation.

But congratulations! You're your own worst example now.
