I see thank you very much for the input.

@Tio: You're not up to date, that's why. When using AUR packages, you're expected to be up to date with the Arch Stable branch. If you're using Manjaro, the Unstable branch is on par with Arch Stable.

After the latest update when I try to open it I get:

~ >>> normcap                                                               [1]

@yochananmarqos: Thanks for your reply. Yes, it is with 0.3.15-2.

As normcap itself is a Qt6 application could it be, that if normcap is the first/only Qt6 application on the system, the user ends up with missing qt6-wayland?

(I recently wiped my system, so it might be that I'm in that situation)

yochananmarqos commented on 2023-01-21 17:38 (UTC)

@dynobo: qt6-wayland is optional for qt6-base. If one uses Qt 6 programs with a Wayland session, they should install it.

I can't reproduce the error. Did you update to 0.3.15-2?

dynobo commented on 2023-01-21 17:17 (UTC)

Turns out I was missing qt6-wayland. I don't know if this is a new requirement, or it got uninstalled somehow, but installing it fixed that issue. Maybe it should be added as an (optional?) dependency to the AUR package?

However, I'm getting the same ModuleNotFoundError as @archisman now...

@yochananmarqos: With a system update a while ago, normcap started to crash on startup. Any idea, what's wrong here? It only occurs with the AUR package for me, AppImage is working as well as running from source.

@anonim-kun: Might it be possible, that you are experiencing the same issue and the AUR-Normcap just doesn't start for you, too? You can confirm this by running normcap in the terminal.

yochananmarqos commented on 2023-01-20 22:50 (UTC)

@Anonim-kun: Define "settings icon". There is only a menu and tray icon which are both displayed.

Anonim-kun commented on 2023-01-20 22:44 (UTC)

@yochananmarqos it does not have settings icon, I tried it with appimage it worked.
