If you get this error RuntimeError: Please install popplerqt5 first rebuild python-poppler-qt5 from AUR, NOT use the binary from some unofficial repository, sometimes it happens with those unofficial repos that some libraries are out of sync with the latest version of python

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)

Fixed and updated, thanks zoidberg.

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.

Hi Simonp, good changes thanks.

here is a new PKGBUILD which downloads the code directly from github:

XavierCLL commented on 2018-09-16 15:41

No, due to the python-pyqt5 warranted that.

houmain commented on 2018-09-16 08:25

I think python-sip should be added to the dependencies.

Hi @rabarret, I checked the package in a clean chroot and all is right, is recommended before install/update it rebuild all aur dependencies.
