@smls, thanks for the fix! Mnemosyne no longer suffers from the error I outlined.

I now suffer from the same error described by @bialou: PIL (python imaging library) is not installed. The suggested solution is to install image with pip. I *think* a more generic solution is to install the python-pillow package with pacman. It works well enough to let mnemosyne start.

Edit: I'm now suffering from a new issue. It's probably an issue with mnemosyne itself. @smls, can you take a look, and let the maintainers know about it if appropriate? This error log pops up when I press the "Browse cards" button.

@hongleong: Installing it manually "pip3 install --user image" takes care of that problem. Hopefully, this can be fixed correctly later. Thank you, for help.

It turns out `qt5-webengine` needed to be explicitly specified as a dependency.
The package has been updated.
(I thought `python-pyqt5` pulls in all the Qt stuff, but apparently Qt is more modular now than it was during Qt4 times.)

It starts fine for me. Maybe I forgot to explicitly specify a dependency or something?
Please ensure that your Arch Linux is fully upgraded, and that /usr/bin/python points to python3.
Meanwhile, I'll try to investigate the issue on my end.

The current version of mnemosyne fails to start. Downgrading to version 2.3.6 (git checksum a35a25f) allows mnemosyne to start. See:

@marmistrz Sorry about that. Fixed now.

The md5sum check fails as of 2016-05-18.

It looks like russo79's patch was committed upstream, so after the next Mnemosyne release it will no longer need to be bundled with the PKGBUILD... :)
