@a.kudelin , I've recompiled the software (using the latest PKGBUILD) but the problem unfortunately persists (both in my laptop and desktop). The symbols are missing for several libraries, and not only the one I've listed. After clicking "Ok" in several dialogs, Ovito finally opens, but cannot open any structures.

I'm in Manjaro Gnome.. maybe the script is missing some KDE library?

EDIT: I tested a previous version (3.1.1-1) and it's working. I think I'll stick to this version while the newer ones does not work.

@hmcezar, I tried to figure out where _ZN5Ovito6StdObj14PropertyAccessIiLb0EED1Ev is settled to, but it's neither in, nor in Could you please recompile the program in a clean environment?

The package successfully installs, but I get several "Failed to load native plugin library." when I open Ovito (and the software starts, but nothing works):

ERROR: Failed to load native plugin library. Library file: /usr/lib/ovito/plugins/ Error: Cannot load library /usr/lib/ovito/plugins/ (/usr/lib/ovito/plugins/ undefined symbol: _ZN5Ovito6StdObj14PropertyAccessIiLb0EED1Ev)

Any ideas on how to solve this?

@Brocellous This package puts qt.conf in /bin, which breaks many other programs using Qt, giving the error you stated.

Hi, this may be fixed when I upgrade the package to ovito 3.0. I don't have time for that at the moment, though.

I suggest installting ovito-git instead, which works fine in my experience.

Thanks for the report!

Installing this package broke my matplotlib somehow. While this package was installed, importing matplotlib resulted in 'this application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "".' I couldn't get the two to both work at the same time. Fortunately, uninstalling this package fixed matplotlib right up. Very strange.

Package is broken at the moment. If you want to install, extract ovito-2.6.2-x86_64.tar.gz to /opt and run from there. I am not able to fix the pkgbuild so I am disowning.

Apparently the programmers started shipping python with the program. Maybe that's a mistake, I'm on it.

Cannot update because of existed /usr/lib/python2.7/distutils ,/usr/lib/python2.7/email,/usr/lib/python2.7/encodings,/usr/lib/python2.7/json,...,etc.
