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.

PKGBUILD Updated and bumped to 8.2.0.
Still having problems when launching multibootusb from the menu and from the terminal [calling the executable /usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec].

Run multibootusb from the terminal with either "sudo multibootusb" or "gksudo multibootusb"

OK. I updated the PKGBUILD for MultiBootUSB. I added some dependencies. I also changed permissions to the file multibootusb.desktop [as requested by satriani].
On my end it built and installed correctly. I just have a few observations to make:
1. Remove any old version before installing this one.
2. For some reason I can't yet understand, the executable ["multibootusb-pkexec"] gives me the following error [when ran from the terminal]:
Starting multibootusb GUI...
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
/usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec: line 6: 3189 Aborted (core dumped) pkexec --disable-internal-agent "/usr/bin/multibootusb" "$@"

I think it has something to do with QT5 and pkexec. [I'm] Not sure.

3. If you want to run it properly use one of the following commands instead:
sudo multibootusb
gksudo multibootusb

Let me know if you can find a solution to this or if something else comes up.

Really odd. Last time I built and checked this package [and after a few minor corrections to the PKGBUILD] it went through flawlessly. Now I encounter more errors. I honestly don't know where they all come from. I'm trying to solve the ones that I have encountered.
According to, this version now depends on: mtools, util-linux, parted, python3-qt5 [which is provided by python-pyqt5], python-dbus, and pkexec [which is provided by polkit].

This package is full of problems, missing dependencies for python3/python3-pyqt5 and plenty of files with missing read permission.

-rw------- 1 root root 191 20. Nov 09:41 multibootusb.desktop

wrong permission.
Please add to PKGBUILD "chmod 755 /usr/share/applications/multibootusb.desktop"

Your PKGBUILD is not correct. The latest version is based on pyqt5 and p7zip is also missing.

Angel_Caido commented on 2016-11-21 03:07

PKGBUILD updated. Thanks for your patience.

sundar_ima commented on 2016-11-20 12:01

The latest version is released

It would be nice if you report the issues you encountered. This will be helpful in solving the issue faster.

I shall update the PKGBUILD as soon as I make sure that Multibootusb is working properly. I have read that it has some errors.
