Actually, it would make sense to add nethack-x11 top conflicts, too =).

Provides would be a bit too much since nethack provides other UIs currently, and some (hypothetical or real?) package could use the plain nethack UI. But these packages can not co-exists as it stands.

The 3.6.6 version does not compile on current Arch. The 3.6.7 does compile with a little changes to the PKGBUILD. I believe conflict for regular nethack should be added; but I'm not sure about provided -field. It could be added, if the binary supports other UIs.

I'm having the same issue as @rev.cressy and I tried installing and running qt5ct. Is there anything else I can try to fix this error?

Hello! The build aborts with:

Is something missing on my end?

@rev.cressy , I had the same issue. It was solved by installing qt5ct and starting it. When you start it, you will probably see "The application is not configured correctly". Press the information button and it will list one or several environment variables that are not set. Set the faulty/missing variables so they are set for your X session. Configure the Qt looks to your liking (you need those variables set to se it), and nethack-qt should start, at least it did for me.

Get this error when I attempt to run nethack-qt:

Added to make dependencies, thanks.

Using the official build and their qt5 hint file to generate the QT ui. Currently failing in the packaging phase, as not all files were transfered. Maybe still ran into the multithreaded build issue
