This issue appeared before, and it's a little puzzling. The only thing I was able to find is that it might be due to some portability issue from an older imagemagick version. What is the output of pacman -Qs magick on your system?

As a temporary workaround, you can switch from ImageMagick to GraphicsMagick by doing the following to changes in your PKGBUILD:

  • line 11: change imagemagick to graphicsmagick

@system7 The name of the kimageformats package changed to kimageformats5 recently. It should still have worked as that package has a provide for the old name. However, I changed the dependency name of photoqt to the new name now to avoid any potential problem going forward.

There is a dependency problem during upgrade. What is the proper way to solve this problem?

$ yay

I removed the photoqt and the kimageformats5, after reinstalled the photoqt and everything worked fine. (May the photoqt removing is unnecessary.)

It works now. Thank you!

Thanks for the report, it seems like exiv2 got finally updated in the repositories. I just added a patch to make it compile with the latest version, so please try again.

Me again.. Firstly, thank u for the last help. I have another problem w/ the last update. I tried the clean install and the reinstall too.

After the upgrade, I have this message when I want to start the program:

$ photoqt
photoqt: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After the reinstall the build is not working too:

I'm encountering this error: -- Could NOT find ImageMagick (missing: ImageMagick_Magick++_LIBRARY) (found version "7.1.1-9") CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:333 (message): ** Unable to locate ImageMagick... is it installed? What can I do to fix this?

It seems like the problem you're experiencing is caused by the dependency python-pychromecast. It's probably best to check there for a solution.

I have a problem through the install. Do you have any idea how to solve it?

@user050126 Thanks, added it to the dependencies.

When installed on a fresh EndeavourOS Cassini Nova, throws an error which prevents it from starting:

QQmlApplicationEngine failed to load component
qrc:/startup/PQStartupFreshInstall.qml:25:1: plugin cannot be loaded for module "QtQuick.Controls": Cannot protect module QtQuick.Controls 2 as it was never registered

It seems that qt5-quickcontrols2 is missing from the dependencies. :)
