Thank you :)

As for the KF6 errors, it looks like you're using KF5 dependencies; for example kitemmodels-git is included as a dependency in the PKGBUILD, yet your error message says it's missing: that's because it was built with Qt5. To fix this, please compile everything with Qt6 and try again. If there are still any issues after that, let me know!

Source needs to be changed to:

Also it does not need and support the following dependencies, please remove:

  • kdelibs4support
  • libkipi (since v22.04)
  • kipi-plugins (since v22.04)

There are also new dependencies, please sync with Arch repo gwenview.

Error during git clone: fatal: remote error: Please use the https: protocol to connect to anongit

And "gwenview-git/gwenview does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt."

Sorry to bother again, I'd also suggest to put libraw in the deps, I know it is already a dep of libkdcraw but gwenview directly links it (

thanks for your help

updated to include kactivies-frameworks from the kactivities-git package; NOTE: The kactivities-framework package is still being maintained on github, the author dropped official support and its against Submission Guidelines( to repost it...

Because id rather not deal with the annoyance, or lack of research offsite, i have updated this to use exclusively the only package availible on AUR. Please modify the pkgbuild if you continue to use kactivies-frameworks.


Note to @aviallon, i will not be including your changes at this time. Dependencies: As covered above kactivies-frameworks is still availible from both aur4 and github. I converted it to kactivities-git for complaints recieved over it... Removing it completely from the build dependencies would be a issue. While its not a exclusive requirement, it is part of kde4/plasma5.x still, and compatibility is more important. Your encouraged to edit all pkgbuilds prior to compiling anyways, so if you may remove it locally if you prefer.

version numbering: i kept the current versioning system temporarily. - Have limited time to do anything at the moment, so testing compatibility with aur repo's with existing packages is not currently a option. There is also the issue with version-bashing with extra/gwenview. pacman doesnt always treat the entire version string correctly and will replace gwenview-git with gwenview in rare occasions when the sub-version updates but the package is not altered to reflect this. (Ex: gwenview:20.04.2-1 | gwenview-git:v20.03.80.r31.g5f85b6ca | gwenview is newer) - This is a big issue since i cant update the subversion at each minor version change upstream. Git is continous, while the arch rolling-release-version. Versioning system from arch will always be ahead as there is no automated way to increment the versioning system without scripting a check for the version arch currently has listed.

Sources: There is no benifit to using https over git protocol. However i will enable pkgname subdirectory creation in the future. As this package is extremely old and i never bothered to update it for packaging standards changes.

build() changes: The use of a build-subdirectory is recommended behavior for all cmake packages. Prefix is often ignored by cmake thats why it was set exclusively. Ill test in the future to see if this has been fixed however. DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release is required for compile and runtime optimisation. Options like hardware acceleration are disabled in the default "Debug", thus why this option has still remained.

However when i have time to test i will be adding recent changes from upstream recommendations of '-DGWENVIEW_SEMANTICINFO_BACKEND="Baloo"' '-DBUILD_TESTING=OFF'
