Not starting under Gnome, Starting over Terminal brings

Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway.

Start it over Terminal with QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland amarok brings the same error.

I found this in the Arch Forum:

@JohnRobson It's not happening to me, alternatively you can download the already built package from here:

Has installed, but fails to start. May be an issue opening the MariaDB.

QtWebEngine::initialize() called with QCoreApplication object already created and should be call before. This is depreciated and may fail in the future.
Attribute Qt::AA_ShareOpenGLContexts must be set before QCoreApplication is created.

I'm getting the following error when trying to install this. I have MySQL installed, so I don't know why it's happening.

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

I'm trying to build this with yay on archlinux 32, and it fails with this message:

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.17/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:164 (message):
  Could NOT find KF5 (missing: NewStuff) (found suitable version "5.68.0",
  minimum required is "5.41.0")

I have knewstuff 5.69.0-1.0 installed (not 5.68 like it says) - do you have any pointers?

@coxe87b it happens because taglib-extras is a dependency on AUR that can't be installed automatically by makepkg. If you use an AUR helper it do the work for you, otherwise you need to install taglib-extras manually. I recommend you do that installing it with --asdeps in order to use a weak reference to the new package in case you want to uninstall amarok in the future.

It would not make the package for me by default using makepkg -si as it threw an error saying that it was unable to solve dependencies. I had to manually install dependencies; libgpod, liblastfm-qt5, mariadb I then had to manually get the dependency "taglib-extras 1.0.1-7" through the AUR and make that package first. Only then was I able to proceed with the makepkg of amarok.
