I can get this to build after editing the PKGBUILD to skip the md5sums (because you will be editing one of the checked files):


And then editing the qwt.patch file by replacing it with the following:

diff --git a/ b/
index 29176ad..e760609 100644
--- a/
+++ b/

 # comment or uncomment for the devices you want to have support for
 # (you obviously have libraries installed for the selected ones)

ETA: The file was updated in mid December. It is likely the file will be continuously updated as the program evolves and files are changed.

You will also need to comment out the sdrplay-v3 line in the file within the src file in the qt-dab-git folder, otherwise the program will not compile (it is experimental at the moment):

#CONFIG     += sdrplay-v3       # pretty experimental

If you are using yay, you can first of all download the files to edit by using:

yay -G qt-dab-git

When done editing, change to the qt-dab-git folder and issue the following command:

makepkg -si

The package will then build.

There is however, another problem. I can not get audio for DAB+ stations to decode with FAAD2 version 2.9. Version 2.8 works fine. This also occurs with which also uses FAAD for DAB+ decoding, so it may be a problem which needs to be fixed upstream.

The issue appears to be still there. :-(

qt-dab was updated tonight to version 2.0. It will no longer compile as the patch file is no longer compatible.
