@nl6720 with these changes, makepkg will build both packages, even if only one is needed. It's probably better to make a separate package for -nox variant

The -nox variant is missing from the PKGBUILD. Here's a diff (based on the repo package) to add it:

I suggest adding qbittorrent-nox to the list of conflicts as well

@abouvier I thought checking the checksum would be enough, but apparently I was wrong

abouvier commented on 2022-03-25 22:10 (UTC)

Why did you remove the signature?

Just putting this here in case someone else has the same issue. I'm on Manjaro, and after yesterday's update, libtorrent-rasterbar was updated from v1.1.15 to v2.0. The old build of qbittorrent was linked against v1, and so it failed to start. Had to rebuild this package (after clearing yay cache) to make it link to v2.

@michaldybczak, Qt6 can be themed via qt6ct.
But if you are using Breeze (default KDE theme), then yes, there is no Qt6 version yet. You will need to use some other theme.

Thanks for this package. I just found out the reason why the updated qbittorrent is so ugly. Installing this qt5 version solved the issue. Qt6 theming support probably won't come anytime soon.
