All my packages are managed at GitHub where you can also contribute directly: There also exist a binary repository:

This version contains both, the CLI and the Qt 5 GUI. Checkout tageditor-cli for a minimal CLI-only version.

Official and some other AUR packages are also sometimes just specifying "provides" instead of concrete package names. This avoids redundancy and leaves flexibility which concrete package to use. That yay can't handle it is a limitation of yay. It has actually already been fixed upstream (see

yay pulls the dependecies automatically. But since they don't exist in the AUR it can't find them. It's not yay's fault but yours. Or let's rephrase that. Your makepkg doesn't list the packages that make the shared objects that it requires.

You must build all dependencies of a package first (unless they're in official repositories). So here you'd invoke makepkg (or prefarably makechrootpkg) for c++utilities, then qtutilities (or qtutilities-qt6), tagparser and then tageditor (or tageditor-qt6).

If you don't want to pull-in Qt as dependencies, then you need to use tageditor-cli which doesn't come with the GUI. You have actually discovered that option yourself already and that is the designated way of "getting rid" of Qt-related dependencies.

Note that yay is not an official Arch Linux build tool so I cannot give you any support regarding that tool and its behavior.

This PKGBUILD , "tageditor", in its current version fails for me,

    $ yay -S  tageditor
 -> Could not find all required packages: (Wanted by: tageditor)

Same thing with the "tageditor-qt6"

    $ yay -S  tageditor-qt6
 -> Could not find all required packages: (Wanted by: tageditor-qt6)

The only one working is the "tageditor-cli" PKGBUILD.

  • "" is provided by the PKGBUILD "qtutilities-qt6"

  • "" is provided by the PKGBUILD "qtutilities-qt6"

I really dont understand why this PKGBUILD, "tageditor" or the othe "tageditor-qt6" doesnt pull them automatically.

I didnt go any further trying to install those dependencies manually, because they pull hundreds of megas of qt dependencies. I dont use other qt apps. So I dont have qt in my system. Too much for just a tag editor in a cli centric work desktop.

Hello, The sha256sum in the 3.4.1-1 version of PKGBUILD shows the same as for version 3.4.0-1 which is wrong. It should be set to 4d3218531fae449ffa76098fbe9a4693e43f2f93d0d38bb4163d6a9ce864d6c7 for 3.4.1. Cheers.

I've just had a look at ffmpeg-full and there's indeed room for improvement, see

tydynrain commented on 2020-03-28 22:56 (UTC)

@Martchus Yes. On the system with the build failure I had ffmpeg-full installed, instead of ffmpeg. I'll reinstall ffmpeg to see if that fixes it.
