I've noticed that if you use p4v to launch anything qt, p4v's qt conflicts with with the system one with a log filled with things like

kde-open5: /usr/share/p4v/lib/ version `Qt_5.14' not found (required by kde-open5)

That includes launching web browser for swarm reviews, using any QT text editors, etc.

Trying to set export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib (which gets appended to p4v's own export LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the p4v file) doesn't help at all because the linker still sees the first libraries and gives up.

p4v is probably built against Ubuntu or Debian, so it works fine there because the libraries match (besides not being able to find its own plugins after startup, but that's a different problem).

like aur/p4 I made some changes so pkgver is updated automatically to match what you download mainly for my own convenience, however unlike that package this one does not ship with an asc so the checksum verif. will still fail until I manually update the package... :(

@aurius sorry, I just fixed it. guess my previous comment to @geirThomassen is defunct lol

When listed the "/home/user/.cache/pikaur/build/p4v/src" got:

@GeirThomassen updating, but where did your 2019.2.1883366 come from? even on the new binary checking the version gets me Rev. Helix P4V/LINUX26X86_64/2019.2/1856742, so I'm just going to bump pkgrel.

edit: nevermind I figured it out lol... ignore this comment

@dront78 yeah I get that it still works, but I'd rather just not mess with it on a package basis, sorry. I'll just distribute what they do.

If you want to keep this package from ever installing that file though, you can symlink it to /dev/null with sudo ln -s /dev/null /usr/share/p4v/lib/P4VResources/skins/Default.qss, and then in your pacman.conf [options] section you can add NoUpgrade = usr/share/p4v/lib/P4VResources/skins/Default.qss and from now on whenever the package is updated it will keep the file as being "empty" and p4v will default to your system theme :)

dront78 commented on 2019-11-19 07:32

@jshap the hack is still working.
: > /usr/share/p4v/lib/P4VResources/skins/Default.qss
p4v will use the desktop skin after restart in KDE.
For the non-qt I think you can create a symlink to your skin. PS. dark theme has better color theme in diff util. shame, it is still not possible to setup like in any modern app.
Finally, I ended up with switching to the DarkTheme.css which has a zero file size :)

jshap commented on 2019-10-31 18:23

@dront78 I messed around with doing that for the default skin file, but on non-qt based platforms it ends up looking very bad.

Fortunately 19.2 now has a native dark theme (edit->preferences->display->color scheme) though so maybe try that out? Although sadly it doesn't look like we can register custom themes either grumble grumble

Installing fails with p4v-2019.1.1830398.tgz not passing sha256sum test

dront78 commented on 2019-08-16 08:28

could you replace p4v/lib/P4VResources/skins/Default.qss with blank file before the packaging? in this case p4v will looks like a native app even when using kde dark theme.
