@caseyjp1, this is not the package problem. Update your system / nodejs package.

Crapping out with: node: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... -> error making: kwin-bismuth

@luigibu, you can do it via windows rules, standard functionality of KDE.

Would you mind adding the aarch64 architecture to the PKGBUILD? It works fine on ARM.

Just installed the package and I'm getting the following error in system settings when I try to navigate to the "Window Tiling" section.

Could not load plugin from kcm_bismuth: The shared library was not found.

It states also the possible reasons as:

* An error ocurred during your last system upgrade, leaving an orphaned control module behind
* You have old third party modules lying around

Which I don't think they apply to my case. Has anyone faced this? Thoughts? Thanks!

EDIT: I upgraded my system and it works now, so I think it was something that was lacking some upgrade.

@Hanabishi I have installed the binary release with no hiccups. Thank you very much for the time and patience.

"Check for working CXX compiler: /usr/bin/c++ - skipped"

This is normal. Instead of guessing you can just upload and share the log.
Or you can just install the binary release, if don't want to dive into the building process.
