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.

On Manjaro Xfce up-to-date, the GUI does not start.
When running multibootusb-pkexec on the terminal, I get the following:

Running multibootusb version 8.8.0 from installed system...

Even if GUI does not start, people still can use commandline options. Source -->

Tested on manjaro KDE with up to date system. With little trouble, I could figure out and solved the issue. Two packages "python-pyudev" (multibootusb specifc) and "dbus-x11" (KDE specific) have been added. Following PKGBUILD works absolutely fine for me and you may wish to update the package accordingly:

pkgdesc="Boot multiple live Linux distros from a usb flash drive."
depends=("python-pyqt5" "pyqt5-common" "python-dbus" "mtools" "util-linux" "parted" "p7zip" "python-six" "python-pyudev" "dbus-x11")

package () {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
chmod 755 "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/data/multibootusb.desktop"
python3 install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1

@Angel_Caido, Can you post the full error message for investigation.

sundar_ima commented on 2017-05-10 12:36

Newer version 8.8.0 is released...

I haven't uploaded an updated PKGBUILD because I'm experiencing issues with the most recent version of multibootusb during testing. I get the error:

Starting multibootusb GUI...
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
/usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec: line 22: 11420 Aborted (core dumped) pkexec --disable-internal-agent "/usr/bin/multibootusb" "$@"

Any insights?
