Please update it

This is the bug responsible for the package not working on 64-bit systems:

The bug was reported in 2013, and hasn't been updated since then, so I don't think it is very high priority. I have updated the package in case it is still working on 32-bit systems. If someone really cares about installing this on a 64 bit machine, I suggest checking out my peazip-qt-build package:

or one of YamashitaRen's packages:

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.

thelongdivider commented on 2015-11-30 23:16

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

rezad commented on 2015-11-30 10:03

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.

uncle commented on 2015-09-01 00:10

Rezad, I have looked into this a little, and am not sure what the problem is. There does appear to be a problem though, because it won't run on my machine. I can't find a problem with lib32-qt4pas, it installs on my machine. More specifically, it installs and creates a link to it titled Strangely the portable version won't run on my machine either. I will look into this further, let me know if you have anymore details regarding this problem.

rezad commented on 2015-08-31 09:23

the crashes people get for their peazip-qt is because of this file "" which is in package lib32-qt4pas which is also maintained by you.

please fix that package so that it is fixed.

you can test this by downloading the portable version of peazip and running it with its own provided version of (which for some reason is not found by the portable binary in its own folder, but that's another matter)

It looks like it should be possible to change the .PKGBUILD to install 64-bit dependencies on 64-bit machines. This package was an orphaned one from the old aur which I updated to the most recent version and changed source from sourceforge to github. I will try to write a new .PKGBUILD for it, and I will also be uploading a peazip-qt-build package soon which would build a 64-bit version on your machine without requiring 32-bit dependencies. The build version being uploaded will probably happen sooner than a new .PKGBUILD for this package, but I will still work on one, and post a new comment when/if I get one that works.

deathtrip commented on 2015-08-12 22:30

would it be possible to replace the 32-bit dependencies with 64-bit ones?

deathtrip commented on 2015-08-12 22:29

would it be possible to make a package without the 32-bit dependencies?
