@ OldNuc

Have you rebuilt PkgBrowser SINCE you updated pacman? I updated pacman first, then built PkgBrowser the following day when kachelaqa released the update- no problems here.

I think you simply need to rebuild PkgBrowser so its built against the correct libalpm...

pkgbrowser 0.18-2 failing with following error. Package-query rebuilt to 1.5-2 12/30/15 and same eror no longer failing yaourt.

Traceback (most recent call last): [trimmed to initial error]
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Just to clarify caseyjp1's comment to avoid confusion:

Cannot upgrade as PkgBrowser requires pacman version < 4.2, and pacman is now 4.2.0-5. Remove PkgBrowser and update system- kachelaqa usually updates quickly, so keep an eye out. Itll be fixed shortly...

Cannot upgrade as pkgbuild requires pacman 4.1 or lower

icu is not required by pkgbrowser, so it is not a dependency (it's just an optional dependency of qt4)

jean_no commented on 2014-05-31 09:49

icu should be included in the dependencies, otherwise this information is displayed when compiling in a clean chroot :
Unable to load library icui18n "Cannot load library icui18n: (icui18n: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)"

With this workaround all is fine. Thanks.

It's possible that this might be caused by a bug in qt/pyqt. As a temporary workaround, try opening pkgbrowser.conf in an editor, and set the following:

strings=python qt linux

names=python qt linux

The actual values don't matter too much - just make sure each one has a space-separated list of at least two or more words.

OK, First I launch pkgbrowser without doing nothing more. Result:
[audiolinux@archaudio ~]$ pkgbrowser
LxQtGuiPlatformPlugin constructed
WARNING: config key has an invalid type: search/strings
WARNING: config key has an invalid type: bookmarks/names

But if I launch and seek for some package inside pkgbrowser and close, the following time the result is this:
[audiolinux@archaudio ~]$ pkgbrowser
LxQtGuiPlatformPlugin constructed
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/", line 9, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 114, in run

self._window = Window()
File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 229, in __init__
TypeError: QStringListModel.setStringList(list-of-str): argument 1 has unexpected type 'list'

and the app will not start

What exactly do you have to do in lxqt to produce the problem? What happens if you just try starting pkgbrowser in a console?
