thanks, I really should test the package in a non kde environment.

It seems like this now needs qt5-multimedia as a dependency.

Without it I got this:

For optional mysql/mariadb and postgresql support, please add python-mysql-connector and python-psycopg2 as optional dependencies.

@thelinuxguy FYI there's a discussion on openlp-dev about QT5.6 and the dropping of qtwebkit in favour of qtwebengine. Apparently cross-platform support is bad in qtwebengine so OpenLP will be staying with qtwebkit since the other big distros won't be moving to 5.6 soon. This might be a problem in Arch.

@morkatros: First of all you found out that the issue is with python-alembic, in that case there is no need to file it here.
The issue is about a failed gpg check I assume. In that case go read the wiki about that
The failure is on your side

morkatros commented on 2015-12-22 00:23

error in the compilation of python-alembic

thelinuxguy, thanks for taking over this package!

thelinuxguy commented on 2015-12-21 16:37

Yes, they updated the tarball. I will update this as soon as I get home later today

ClawOfLight commented on 2015-12-21 15:09

I get a checksum verification failure for the tarball. Can anyone else confirm?

thelinuxguy commented on 2015-12-21 11:53

I just updated openlp to the latest version. It runs fine on my machine. Please let me know of any troubles you run into (specifically about dependencies)

thelinuxguy commented on 2015-11-30 13:54

I don't mind taking it over.
I have a working version here (at least I think I do, haven't tested it on a fresh machine yet):

I'm unsure about the dependencies though. I haven't found any offical dependencies collection yet.
The Pkgbuild of jonarnold definietly includes unneeded dependencies that are only useful for development

wrst commented on 2015-11-27 02:50

jonarnold would you like to take over the packaging? Time has not been my friend on getting things updated.

jonarnold commented on 2015-11-20 02:36

I finally found the 2.2.x dependencies ( and updated the PKGBUILD. Everything should be correct now.

Same link:

ClawOfLight commented on 2015-11-19 19:39

Okay, thanks :)
I will test it when I have time.
Our church will switch to 2.2.1 for production soon, so it will be good to have it.

Do you happen to know an ETA for the missing dependencies?

jonarnold commented on 2015-11-16 23:53

I have a working PKGBUILD for 2.2.1 here:

Some of the dependencies aren't in Python 3 (beautifulsoup3, pysqlite-legacy), so I'm not sure that everything works, but the program installs and runs. Didn't update the libreoffice dep yet.

ClawOfLight commented on 2015-11-14 21:14

This package has been flagged out-of-date for a while.
In fact, a major new version (2.2.1) has been released.
Are you planning on updating this, or was it a one-time kind of thing?
