Hi Alleut, that is a problem of 'python-poppler-qt5' maintainer but you can install 'python-poppler-qt5-git' to supply this dep

@XavierCLL Thanks. Unfortunately I am not knowledgeable enough to understand what you are pointing me at.

These two packages are from aur, you must use any aur helper for that

Cannot install in Manjaro, I get this error: Missing dependencies: python-poppler-qt5 python-pypdf2

I still need to have python-sip installed to get krop to launch (I get the same error). For some reason, krop is not finding the sip provided by python-sip-pyqt5. To get it to use that, I need to change import sip to import PyQt5.sip as sip in line 5 of /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/krop/

Edit: The following seems to be a better way to go about it:

import sys

PYQT5 = False
    # use PyQt5 unless not available or specified otherwise
    if '--no-qt5' not in sys.argv:
            import PyQt5
            import PyQt5.sip as sip
            PYQT5 = True
        except ImportError:
    if not PYQT5:
        import PyQt4
        import sip
except ImportError:
    _msg = "Please install PyQt4 or PyQt5 first."
    raise RuntimeError(_msg)

I needed to install the python-sip package too to get this to work. Without this package, krop would exit with the following error when launched from the terminal:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/krop/", line 5, in <module>
    import sip
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'sip'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/krop", line 17, in <module>
    from krop.application import main
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/krop/", line 19, in <module>
    from krop.config import KDE
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/krop/", line 17, in <module>
    raise RuntimeError(_msg)
RuntimeError: Please install PyQt4 or PyQt5 first.

Could you please add this package to the dependencies? I also had python-pyqt5 installed, but that alone was not enough.
