Hello, here you can find my patch to build it with QT 5.11.2 :

@antoyo: Thanks for pointing out the issue is solved in the svn version. However, this package is only for the stable version. There is already another package chessx-svn which I am not maintaining for the svn version. Hope that upstream would have a release soon so I can package it.

@munzirtaha: I had the same issue, but I decided to compile the code from the svn repository and it worked fine. So, if there was a bug, it was fixed upstream and this package should compile. Thanks to fix the issue.

@VanLaser: This is an upstream bug I believe. You need to report it there. chessx is not updated for a while and mostly it's not compatible with Qt 5.11

@Artefact2: You shouldn't have qt4 as default. I don't even have it on my system. In case you really need qt4, use environment variables or configuration files as in to make qt5 default or maybe edit PKGBUILD and explicitly use qmake-qt5

@madnight: Just retested and chessx works for me under KDE. I am not facing this problem so may be it's related to your env or theme configuration. If you can be more specific on how to reproduce the bug, I will be glad to help.

Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x50700) with this library (version 0x50701)
