Openssl 1.1.0 broke the package, had to rollback to 1.0.2

Should add libxslt as a dependency.

No. Coreutils in base depends on openssl so that should be installed on archlinux installation.

I needed to install openssl to make this work (otherwise Mendeley wouldn't detect my internet connection). Should that be added as a dependency?

Seems the plugin has been removed?

or maybe you are using it under wayland?

siglot commented on 2016-10-14 09:44

for me behaviour is exactly the same. The difference between my log an yours is:

QXcbIntegration: Cannot create platform OpenGL context, neither GLX nor EGL are enabled

Maybe this is your cuplprit? Did you enabled glx/egl in kwin?

Per my below comment, mendeleydesktop-dev in the AUR seems to work ok. One difference that I notice is that the -dev package only depends on qt5-webengine, with the rest of the dependencies being implicit. Further, the maintainer of that package said "The problem seems to be that mendeley is compiled against qt5webengine 5.5 and while archlinux is at 5.7." Hope this helps

Mendeley is crashing every time I try to open it:
