Dropped pyqt5-common. About SyntaxWarning - it was fixed in this commit:, but stable version with this fix wasn't released. Use GUI and multibootusb-pkexec instead, or install multibootusb-git to retrieve the latest available version with fix.

@Tav, You can install all required packages (dependencies) from anaconda package manager and it should fix the issue you are facing.

@sundar_ima You were right, although the solution involved uninstalling anaconda as a package and re-installing it after I installed multibootusb. I am sure there is a more elegant solution, but I don't know what it is. I'd be interested to hear it. Thanks for your observation.

Those who are getting this error "QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'" and failing to start window, please have a look at cat /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/ for path to multibootusb path. Path to which multibootusb and path of multibootusb in the polkit file should be same. Please correct path to multibootusb in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/ and it should work properly.

@Tav Your package is installed in anaconda environment whereas other modules are installed in standard location. Therefore it fails. You need to install only on standard installation.

Upgraded to 9.1.0.

Version 9.1.0 actually works (9.0.0 had the x86_64-efi bug)
