Current git URL is:

Also the latest version might need different dependencies.

Most importantly, it prefers the modern qt5-webengine instead of the very old kdewebkit.

Unfortunately, the patch from @JonnyRobbie is currently causing the build to fail, due to a missing rm $pkgdir/usr/share/org.kde.syntax-highlighting/syntax/r.xml. Please remove

Update to suntax-highlighting causes

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) rkward-frameworks-git: /usr/share/org.kde.syntax-highlighting/syntax/r.xml exists in filesystem (owned by syntax-highlighting).

I suggest this patch:

#frameworks branch got merged to #master and no longer exists. makepkg's git throws an error (but still builds)

I suggest simply:

ktexteditor should be a dependency

Unfortunately I get the error when running rkward after the installation: The KDE installation could not be found (qtpaths). When moving / copying RKWard, make sure to copy the whole application folder, or create a shorcut / link, instead. How can I fix this? Thanks in advance!

There are some missing makedeps. At least `extra-cmake-modules` and `kdoctools`.
