After installing this and testing it, I tried the Krita appimage. The appimage works as intended by the developers, but there are serious things wrong with this AUR beta install.

1 gmic is NOT required as krita5 has finally baked the tool internally.

This install indicates that gmic is not installed or the wrong version.

  1. Memory usage. This install jumps to 2gig ram during load. This install takes up to a minute to load to the main menu. Within an hour memory usage increases to 4-5gig...with no input.

  2. On 1st time load, Krita5 should take longer to load, and then much faster subsequently. This install does not. (The appimage works as advertised here as well.)

Just a heads up, as I do not believe this AUR beta is the same one that can be downloaded as an appimage on Krita's site.

I assume there might be a couple of people wanting to try out the 5.0.0 beta, so while waiting for a package update, the following at least worked for me:
