I played around and I found that there is no PyQt4 module available in python3. help("modules") shows only a PyQt5 module - but no PyQt4 module. But python-pyqt4 is installed...

- rebuild (reinstall) python-pyqt4
- install python-sip-pyqt4

After doing this qt-recordmydesktop builds and installs flawlessly.

Same here. Python-pyqt4 is version 4.12.3-4 and error message tells PyQt4>=4.1 must be present.

PKGBUILD 'qt4>=4.2.0', pacman -Qi shows qt4-4.8.7-32 but getting same error as simona

configure: error: You need PyQt4>=4.1 installed to procceed

I think your guess is right. I do not have any other explanation for this strange behaviour.

Hmmm, looks like Sourceforge might be generating the file on the fly and not doing a great job at it. I'll probably switch to the latest release and just include patch files for the newer commits.

Sometimes the mentioned link is working but most of the time it does not (Error 404). Issue is gone with 0.3.8.r602-2

0.3.8.r602-2 works like a charm - and your old one is working now, too. But it has not worked until today morning - I have tried it at 7:00 CEST. Now it is working, too. Very, very weird... Thanks for your work!

@df8oe: That link is provided by the Download Snapshot link in the recordmydesktop subdirectory, which is useless for me, as I need the stuff from the qt-recordmydesktop subdirectory. I can try changing the link to to only get the stuff from that subdirectory, but I'm still stumped as to why the download doesn't work for you.

I cannot download it using the link which is provided from PKGBUILD - and many of my friends cannot, too. Sourceforge provides the link from ...

dpeukert commented on 2020-06-22 07:25 (UTC)

@df8oe: That's weird, I can download the URL just fine. It's the URL that Sourceforge provides when using the Download Snapshot link.

df8oe commented on 2020-06-22 05:55 (UTC)

This would be the correct path to file:
