I successfully re-compiled and installed kxstitch on my archlinux up-to-date. I did not have your error. So, I don't update PKGBUILD, which works in that state.

Error installing kxstitch: /bin exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem). Programs on Arch cannot be installed into /bin. To get around this, I changed PKGBUILD line
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}/usr" install

Arch system updated on 02/28/2020

@KXStitchAuthor / Steve,

Thank you for this very helpful information. This solved my problem!

There was a change made in in KDE/Qt somewhere after versions KDE 5.55.0/Qt 5.9.7 that caused this problem. It was fixed in the 2.2.0 release of KXStitch.

I have advised another user to install all packages from the qt5 and kf5 package groups and then compile and install the kxstitch-2.2.0 package from

This would be a solution pending an updated package.

I am having the exact same problem that roofpond has. I cannot open any .kxs file with KXStitch. I have totally uninstalled and reinstalled KXStitch, but this did not help the situation. Currently, I am saving everything in the Library ... not the best of options, but at least it works ... for now.

Installed this a couple days ago and it seemed fine, but if I save my pattern (as a .kxs file) and try to open it in the program I get this error:

"The file does not appear to be a recognized cross stitch file."

Hey, I created a Flatpak package for KXStitch, it’s available on Flathub:

It’s partly based on this package and it should be fully working, I’d however appreciate any testing; it’s hard to test out everything. Thanks!

I've moved off of arch for my daily driver needs (so I've dropped myself as co-maintainer). I'm still using kxstitch, just not on arch.

Best of luck!

Ohhh! Thank you very much, working fine over here.

You have to setup the page first, at the top of the print/page setup dialog there is a "..." buttun (upper left) that if you hit that it will setup the page for printing.
