Also please uninstall libmediawiki-git, because the same is true for that.

@gardotd426, and everyone else: please kindly uninstall kipi-plugins and libkipi, because they are defunct, deprecated, and not used by any application.

This needs to be updated to reflect the changes to the naming of KDE packages:

:: installing kio5 (5.111.0-1) breaks dependency 'kio' required by kipi-plugins

kio is now kio5

Okay, then let me answer my own question:

gwenview and spectacle stopped using libkipi since KDE Gear release 22.04.0.

That's why Arch dropped this package in April 2022 to AUR, as from then on, no KDE Gear app is able to use this library.

Btw, just for curiosity's sake: who among you uses this package and for what?

Is there any remaining KDE application that supports libkipi?

Hi @Funkin-Stoopid, you can find it here

Hello Where can we find libmediawiki ?

@patlefort: thank you! It's now fixed :)

@ribugent: there's not much I can do here: they aren't required at runtime (so they should stay optional), but they must be present at build time should the user ever want to use them (so they have to stay as makedeps).

However, if you don't personally need those two plugins, you can try removing them from the makedeps (and optdeps) and recompiling; that should make that warning go away. If you do want them, just do as you did!

This morning I got the following message from check-broken-packages-pacman-hook-git

File "/usr/lib/qt/plugins/" from package "kipi-plugins" is missing dependency ""

I installed the update yesterday, so after checking I've noticed that there are a couple of dependencies which are set as "optional" and "make" at the same time, and currently, I'm using yay with the configuration to remove make deps, so this option breaks the package.

To be honest, I do not know exactly how other packagers deal exactly with this situation... the only options I can see now are, removing them as make deps, or switching to required dependencies.

From my side, I've just reinstalled libmediawiki as a dependency and the issue is gone.

Actually the problem is that both libkipi and kipi-plugins use the same filename on the source file and makepkg can't tell if I set SRCDEST in my makepkg.conf.

Could you please give them unique names like such: source=("$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz::$pkgname/archive/refs/tags/v$pkgver.tar.gz")?
