@gbr: Thanks. Added gst-plugins-good.

gbr commented on 2017-11-15 13:51

I suggest adding gst-plugins-good as a dependency, otherwise people won't be able to hear notification sound for new feeds. Here's the error I was getting:

15.11.2017 11:43:50.584 WARNING: GStreamer; Unable to pause - "file:///usr/share/quiterss/sound/notification.wav"

Cordially antonio

In my case I can't start the app because of error `terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'`, solve it by add CONFIG+=debug to build() in PKGFILE.
Thanks to

@Ferik: Thanks.

build() {
qmake-qt5 "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/$" \
PREFIX=/usr \

ranger commented on 2016-11-21 12:29

I don't know if there is any way to check this.
But also the weird part is that the app works perfectly with other DE.

spsf64 commented on 2016-11-21 11:52

@ranger, is there any command to check what files are started along when launching quiterss? So I could check in both installs...

ranger commented on 2016-11-21 11:47

Haven't tried xfce. But like cinnamon, it's a gtk DE. Maybe this has something to do with the faults.

In my case I have two installations on different machines and both have the same problem. Segmentation fault only on cinnamon.

Look at this thread

spsf64 commented on 2016-11-21 11:44

@ranger, using xfce here.
The strange thing is I have 2 ssd's both with xfce.
First one is an old arch installation (1 year+) it works fine!
On the second ssd (new install) also xfce it just simple does not work... and I cant figure out what is the difference.
Maybe some dependency?

ranger commented on 2016-11-21 11:37

what DE are you using? I have the same problem for almost a month and this happens only when I start quiterss with cinnamon. It runs with no problem with any other DE I tried (kde, lxde, lxqt...)

I never found a solution, I had to switch to quiterss-qt4 for now

spsf64 commented on 2016-11-21 00:29

Keeps crashing with segmentation fault on start.
Works fine if launched as root or sudo, any suggestion?

Jeroen0494 commented on 2016-10-19 18:55

Thanks, that worked. I was able to export my feeds.

Qt5 and Qt4 use different save paths:

Jeroen0494 commented on 2016-10-19 07:21

The Qt4 version does work and seeing how QuiteRSS only supports Qt 5.4.* this is probably an upstream issue with the latest Qt.

Next problem: the Qt4 version doesn't work with my current database. It simply won't load my existing feeds. How can I import/use my current database?

Jeroen0494 commented on 2016-10-17 17:13

Same problem here. Quiterss crashes immediately on startup. A recompile in a clean environment doesn't fix the problem.

ThecaTTony commented on 2016-05-25 05:28

I'm disowning this package because I will not longer use it anymore. It gave me problems when restoring the system from suspension (feeds dont update).
I switched to miniflux hosted in a mele a2000 arm board with arch linux, that is always running, among other services (amuled mpd quassel).

ThecaTTony commented on 2016-03-05 07:19

@DoctorJellyface Try to build on clean chroot or recompile.

jurf commented on 2016-02-28 09:58

Quiterss crashes immediately for me, only shows this:

[1] 28172 segmentation fault (core dumped) quiterss

ThecaTTony commented on 2016-02-09 04:37

@akazantsev qmake-qt5 is part of qt5-base, a dependency for any qt5-* package.


Anonymous comment on 2016-02-08 07:33

There is no more qmake-qt5 in the system

ranger commented on 2015-11-03 15:57

Yes, it was my fault. I had Qt4 as default in ~/.config/qtchooser/default.conf

But 0.18.2-3 fixed this and line 22

ThecaTTony commented on 2015-11-03 15:48


Your default qmake points to qmake-qt4:

I've update the PKBUILD to compile against qmake-qt5 by default, i'am also change the 22 line. Try it now.

ozky commented on 2015-11-03 15:17

@ThecaTTony I get no any errors bulding it,so i have no idea about that problem.

@Ranger i get this: Qt-5.5.1, SQLite-3.9.1, WebKit-538.1.

ranger commented on 2015-11-03 10:40

I had to change line 20 and remove ../ before "$pkgname".patch as it couldn't find the patch file.

Also, after updating to 0.18.2-2 I still see Qt4 in "About"
"Includes: Qt-4.8.7, SQLite-3.9.1, WebKit-537.21"

xionzs commented on 2015-11-03 08:36

Thank you for the information. I'm happy I didn't spend any time regrabbing feed links.

xionzs commented on 2015-11-03 06:52

Version 0.18.2-2 seems to have deleted my feeds on update.
Make sure to backup your files before updating

ThecaTTony commented on 2015-11-02 17:04

Whenever i try to compile against qt 5 the process fail. Can you help me?

This should change to building it with qt5,as quiterss have officially changed to qt5.
