As far as I can tell, the problems people are having, are caused by the "peazip-qt" program itself, and not by my PKGBUILD. If it was something I could fix, and I knew how to fix, I would be happy to do so, but I do not think this is the case. If someone wishes to pursue getting this fixed, they might want to try contacting the developer, his email address is available over at, and there is also a peazip bug tracker which you can also find a link to on the peazip website. I do not use KDE/Qt so I just maintain this package because I am a fan of the peazip program, and there are other people who want to use the Qt version.

I had the same problem as the last two posters.
If you're using a 64bit Arch, you may want to check my PKGBUILD :

i have exactly the same problem. something tells me there is a fundamental flaw in peazip-qt, i never managed to get it running, not on ubuntu, not on arch.

Thanks, that worked to get it installed. :)

Now have an exception access violation error :( Though I see a number of posts with varying forms that error.

[FORMS.PP] ExceptionOccurred
Exception=Access violation
Stack trace:
TApplication.HandleException Access violation
Stack trace:
[FORMS.PP] ExceptionOccurred

(All dependencies are installed except the optionals quad and unace)

@Thorned_Rose It’ll work if you move the entire directory at once (line 35 in the PKGBUILD):

mv "$srcdir"/res "$srcdir"/$pkgname/usr/local/share/PeaZip/res

I am getting an error using yaourt (similar possibly to the error dated 2012-06-25 23:39 at

I think I fixed it.

rezad is correct. The package doesn't install due to this (rather immediate) error

I updated the package version in case this is actually working for anyone, but I still can't get it to work on my machine, and I's still not sure what the problem is. I will try posting on the forums and see if anyone can help. I just uploaded a peazip-qt-build package if anyone is interested. The lazarus dependencies are kind of large, about 1 GB, but that really isn't too large, these days. I was able to get that package to build and work on my machine.
