@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.
