All reported issues should be fixed now.

CountMurphy commented on 2017-10-11 19:02

well damn, never occurred to me to hit enter in that field (time is accepted currently once another field gets cursor focus). I will definitely add that to the bug list. Thanks again!

When I wanted to set an alarm time and confirmed with return, the program crashed with Segmentation fault (core dumped).

CountMurphy commented on 2017-10-11 18:26

The calendar bug I am familiar with (crashed when clicking on the calendar when there is no alarm selected). That one popped up with the 2.0 release, was going to patch it, and then forgot about it. The setting time one is new to me. Will look into it. In the mean time at least you have something that runs (mostly) until I get the official fix out this week. Thanks for your help in debugging.

Hello CountMurphy, qtalarm still started. Unfortunately, it crashes occasionally. Times it was a click in the calendar, times it was when setting the alarm time. Segmentation fault (core dumped). And sometimes it worked fine.

CountMurphy commented on 2017-10-10 02:59

tobias.bln, I think I have a fix ready. Would you be willing to run an experimental branch to test it?

If not, no problem. I'll spend a few days testing it further myself before releasing it.

CountMurphy commented on 2017-10-09 17:55

Thanks for the information. I'll try to have this patched within a few days. I've also created a bug in github for the project ( If I come across more information I'll post it there.

Hello CountMurphy, I use gnome (with wayland) as desktop environment. The version you posted also says: "Unsupported Desktop Environment. Exiting". Recently, qtalarm still worked and I used it.

CountMurphy commented on 2017-10-09 12:32

tobias.bln, what Desktop environment are you using? That message should only pop up if the DE in question doesn't have a system tray. And just to clarify, if you use this build it does work?

tobias.bln commented on 2017-10-09 06:20

After the start of qtalarm over the command line I get the error message:

"Unsupported Desktop Environment. Exiting"

QT and the QT libraries are installed and up-to-date.

==> qtalarm dependencies:
- qt5-base (already installed)
- qt5-multimedia (already installed)
- gst-plugins-base (already installed)
- gst-plugins-good (already installed)
- make (already installed) [makedepend]
- gcc (already installed) [makedepend]

This occurs since the last update.

That is odd. I've had pacaur fail on me for other packages in the past that build fine on their own. Just tried installing with pacaur and couldn't reproduce. Glad you got it working!

martynjy commented on 2017-05-16 16:27

Strange. I tried twice using 'pacaur 4.7.8-1' and got the error. Gave up and installed manually with no problem!

CountMurphy commented on 2017-05-16 12:35

@martynjy, how are you building the package? Are you using an aur helper or doing it manually? If you are building manually and *only* downloading the PKGBUILD, you will get the error you are describing. You will need to either, clone the git url and build, download the snapshot and build, or build using some kind of aur helper.

@CountMurphy sorry for the late reply. Confirming that works, thanks.

CountMurphy commented on 2017-02-28 14:41

@Leledumbo run "gpg --recv-keys E41FF9C889B141CC" to have gpg automatically fetch the public key. Or if you are the type of person who enjoys pain, you can import the key manually from :)

Looks like the key has gone unknown...

This issue has been resolved

QTalarm currently wont play audio. Bug has been noted here:

CountMurphy commented on 2013-03-02 18:23

Updated to use qt4 instead of qt5

CountMurphy commented on 2013-03-02 09:17

phonon is no longer included with QT5. Trying to build with qt4 (or qt5) delivers this message: Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: phonon

Unless someone really clever finds a way to get it to build, I'm going to have to rewrite a good portion of QTalarm before it works again.
