@pipep - No, all members of the base-devel group are assumed dependencies and shall not be listed out explicitly:

Compiling backintime I get the error "make: msgfmt: Command not found". I solved installing gettext. Should gettext be added as dependency?

@artafinde - Yes, the current version of pyqt4 will not work without it.

Is python-sip-pyqt4 now a dependency?

@derkardinal @finswimmer - thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I added the dep of python-pyqt4 based on @inemum's PKGBUILD (which I uploaded to the AUR). I am able to run 1.1.24 now with the current version of pyqt4.

I installed the python-sip-pyqt4 package from @inemum and that solved the problem as @finswimmer described.

How do I install the described python-sip-pyqt4 package provided by @inemum?

With PyQt4 v4.12.2 it is necessary to create a private copy of the sip module. See the note in the install instructions (

Note: When building PyQt4 v4.12.2 or later you must configure SIP to create a private copy of the sip module using a command line similar to the following:

python --sip-module PyQt4.sip --no-dist-info --no-tools

In the comment area of the python-pyqt4 package ( @inemum provide a PKGBUILD for a python-sip-pyqt4 package. Installing this and added it as a dependency for backintime, solves the "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PyQt4.sip'" problem for me.
