@ Bloodaxe This seems to occur on some systems due to an incompatibility with the dependeny Qt WebKit introduced in qt5-base versions post 5.15.2+kde+r200.

I recommend unpacking this last known-good version (https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/q/qt5-base/qt5-base-5.15.2%2Bkde%2Br200-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst) to /opt/oldqt and launching knossos with LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to "/opt/oldqt/usr/lib".

I've brought this up on HLP's discord a while ago and it was deemed not worth fixing, as the new knossos implementation (currently under development by ngld) doesn't use the affected Qt features, and the bug seems hard to reproduce.

When I open the app, the Knossos 0.14.3 and window interaction icons show up, but the app itself is just a white square? Somehow something is borked :-(

This package seems to be missing a dependency, fuse2. You may need to manually install fuse2 (sudo pacman -S --asdeps fuse2) in order to actually start any games.

(edit: I noticed this after switching from gnome to KDE, so this is likely the same error that themaddin encountered)

qt5-base 5.15.2+kde+r203-1 breaks knossos, a downgrade to r200 appears to work.

I've pushed the version to 0.14.3, updated the checksum and added the python-pyqtwebengine dependency.

I've not added python-pip, as it should already be a dependency of python-token-bucket through python-setuputils. AFAIK it is not a direct dependency of this, and, if indeed missing for python-token-bucket, should be reported there.

In addition to what @ph34rb0t mentioned to get this to build I also needed to manually install the python-pip package from the official repositories, as it is a dependency for python-token-bucket and it is not marked as such.

I think @ph34rb0t should take ownership of this package.

MD5 for 0.14.3: e744e613c9925a5c3d774c1787c554fb

Alternatively, set the first md5sum in line 21 of the PKGBUILD to "SKIP".

Other edits: See previous reply.

ph34rb0t commented on 2020-06-27 01:35

Required PKGBUILD changes for 0.14.1:

Line 4, change to:

pkgver=0.14.1

Line 13, add:

python-pyqtwebengine

Line 21, change MD5SUM to

1f5bc57788edadb667a522a8ce70d230

Also mind that python-token-bucket is an AUR package and might require building before trying to build Knossos.

The 0.14.1 package built okay for me after these adaptions and works.

Knossos 0.14 is out: https://github.com/ngld/knossos/releases Would the maintainer be so kindly to update it in AUR repositories too? Thanks in advance!
