Well, obviously hard-coding the path works, unless you use a custom KDE build. It still would be nice if the guidelines were a bit clearer on this. Most packages in the AUR seem to ignore them anyway.

I've updated the PKGBUILD to use qtpaths6 for now.

The same article also mentions

When a package is moved to extra that line must be changed to:


in this case, I'd say replace "extra" with "AUR" here. Doing so myself does indeed work great.

qtpaths --install-prefix literally just outputs /usr anyway..

Using qtpaths (replacing kf5-config for KF6) should be the correct way to go for AUR packages (see and

Since the guidelines haven't been updated for KF6 yet, I don't know what the official recommendation would be.

I realized, however, that /usr/bin/qtpaths is currently still part of qt5-tools which isn't in the "depends" list, while the version from qt6-base is under /usr/lib/qt6/bin/qtpaths.

Try replacing qtpaths in the PKGBUILD with the full path to the Qt6 version and see if that works.

supposed to be in /usr/bin

I see you're trying to fancy(?) by using qtpaths --install-prefix, but I guess that just isn't being set when in a chroot.

Following on what @katt said, please append name to the source link or use direct link${pkgname}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.zst.

Please fix the downloaded filename, it currently isn't unique and thus fails when the package updates..

Looks like the plasma 5 packages are slowly dropping the "provides" for the old names:

PKGBUILD needs to be updated and replace all k dependencies with k5 ones.

audiocd-kio should be in optdepends as it's needed for accessing mounted CD-DA tracks

Oh wow! I thought project is unsupported that's why I adopted it. Glad to see that original author is here (just realized that :D). There were some translation updates pushed by various people to my fork I think we can port those translations. The only question is I have: where to contribute? Sorry maybe I missed something, but I do not see source repo on SourceForge.

Hi. I just released a new version and updated the PKGBUILD.

@RealGecko: I guess you're referring to kde-cdemu-manager-kf5. I had assumed that fork was obsolete since kde-cdemu-manager has had history support since version 0.7. Are there other features you think should be added? In any case patches are always welcome!
