Just a heads up that ahmubashshir will be updating this package per commit as per regular VCS package standards, so this means this package will get updates a lot more often.

If that isn't your sort of thing then I suggest you move over to the stable version of this package.

Trackma now uses poetry (via for dependency management and installation, making python-poetry-core required for installation.

Refer to for the commands and other dependencies required to build now.

@Typology, ~read this thread on arch bbs first, then create a pr with fix for this on my pkgbuilds repo... my pc is broken atm, so I'm in a tough spot.

@Timptop89, did you actually check the pkgbuild before trying this out? In this pkgbuild, everything is optional except for the core functionality(i.e. CLI amd inotify monitor)

here's the list of optional feaures and their dependencies(install the one you wanna use, it's opt-in, not opt-out)

lsof – polling tracker/pyinotify alternative
python-cairo – GTK frontend
python-gobject – GTK frontend/MPRIS tracker
python-pillow – thumbnail images for GUI frontends
python-pydbus – MPRIS tracker
python-pyqt5 – Qt frontend
python-urwid – ncurses frontend

qt.qpa.plugin: Could not find the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in ""
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Showing this error while running trackma-qt

If someone wonders why the tracking doesn't work : pyinotify doesn't work with symlink, so reference the real path of your anime folder (or use another tracker, but that's more work and less ideal).

@kasumin Sounds like an API issue; I've left some comments at your GH issue
