@xiota python-pyqt5 does not necessarily have to pull in python-pyqt5-webengine, as it's only an optional dependency. I had python-pyqt5-webengine installed on my machine, and yet some icons for adding scenes in novelWritter were still not showing up, because of qt5-svg has nevertheless not installed with it automatically.

Adding qt5-svg is unnecessary. It is already pulled in by python-pyqt5-webengine (via python-pyqt5).

Also, dependency on python is no longer needed. The python-* dependencies will pull it in.

@bitwave Please also include the package qt5-svg as a dependency, it is needed for rendering the application icons.

Thank you,

Please can you copy meta files (desktop, icon, mime) for a complete system integration:

install -D setup/data/novelwriter.desktop -t "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/applications
install -D setup/data/novelwriter.png -t "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/pixmaps
install -D setup/data/x-novelwriter-project.xml -t "${pkgdir}"/usr/shar/mime/packages
mkdir -p "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/icons/"${pkgname}" && cp -r setup/data/hicolor/* "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/icons/"${pkgname}"

Please make a symlink from /usr/bin/novelWriter to /usr/bin/novelwriter — mixed case program names just suck.
