Thanks for the reminder. I added the qt5-tools as a makedep and updated the package with the Gentoo patch. At first glance the UI seems to work, the rest is untested. I would offer the pgl packages for adoption, but seeing that upstream has been dead for 6 years…

Flagging because it fails to build: The code needs to be patched and qt5-tools needs to be added to (make)depends.

The following patch builds in a clean chroot, though the package is untested (includes modified patch by @eserlxl):

If you encounter with multiple definition errors of blocklist type while compiling ( you can use my patches:

Please consider removing '--disable-cron' and adding 'cron' as a dependency.

Reason for this is that, though you can technically build and run PeerGuardian without cron, you encounter execution error for /tmp/ commands each time you try to modify something. This is due to PeerGuardian's logic to add commands to this .sh file, and this logic seems to always expect that /etc/cron.{daily,weekly,monthly} folders are present in the system. If not, PeerGuardian generates empty or incomplete 'mv' commands with too few arguments into /tmp/ which, in the end, leads to an error pop-up window.

This should be fixed upstream but since PeerGuardian developers have said their ultimate goal is to replace this temporary script file with polkit authentication they might not pay too much attention to this issue.

P.S. Available/satisfying cron packages in Arch repositories are 'cronie' and 'fcron' which both provide 'cron' dependency package.

As of pglgui has been ported to Qt5. Hence this PKGBUILD needs updating to drop qt4 and polkit-qt4 dependencies and replace those by qt5-base. Also, the qt4 vars exported in build() need to be dropped. PKGBUILD with the needed changes is available at
