Last week I couldn't open the application anymore. But thanks to @yibe I reinstall based on yibe's PKGBUILD and works again! Thank you!

github has deprecated git:// access. Please, use git+https:// in the PKGBUILD

I haven't tried it, but qt5-webkit and python-pyqt5-webkit are now available in the AUR, though I'm not sure if it will work as before.

For those unwilling to build qt5-webkit, here's my (PyQt5-)WebEngine port of ldoce5viewer. There may be some glitches, but overall it's working fine.

In new versions of Qt, QWebKit and QWebKitWidgets have been deprecated in favor of QWebEngine and QWebEngineWidgets. Plus, some methods are now async by default


So, the program isn't going to work, unless it gets ported to one of new Qt versions.

(feel free to post this as an issue on the project's github repo.)

@abedi.h Replace git:// with git+

@promike Sorry for the late response. The issue has been fixed by merging this PR:

If there are other people who also can't wait for the developer to wake up, here's a patch. (I'm using what yibe suggested)

md5sums=('SKIP' 'f3a9b8cfef1c1f70938f401ac047072d')

prepare() {
cd "${srcdir}/${_reponame}"
patch --forward --strip=2 --input="${srcdir}/package.patch"

The patch itself: see you at the next update

Seems like the same Python 3.10 issue as this:

@promike Besides that, line 152 of the same file needs to be fixed as well. Someone has already opened a PR that covers both:
