Can you update the PKGBUILD?- please.

Thanks, @shimi - that worked like a charm :-)

@Ferdinand package updated please retry

Don't know if this is a permanent situation, but two attempts today, a few hours apart, gave a 404 during makepkg -si:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting...

@shimi could you please add aarch64 in the supported architecture?. I tested it and it works on arch arm. thanks for your work..

OK, I had time to do a bit more research. Not only does PlatformHal.cpp need "#include <QMessageBox>", but "toAscii()" is an obsolete function. It is a Qt4 function. It should be "toLatin1()" instead. See

Usually I use yay to build AUR packages. In this case, I did try manually as well:

  1. Created directory.
  2. makepkg -si

I get the same error.

I notice qt5-base and udisks2 are dependencies, so I ran the command to update them, but it says they are already the latest version, 5.15.1-1 and 2.9.1-1 respectively.

If you want to see the complete list, I posted it at, since I'm not sure how to attach it here.

@JDCNS I can't reproduce the bug. Can you upload a list of your installed packages (with versions) and the step-by-step of how you tried to build the package?

JDCNS commented on 2020-09-14 03:09

I keep getting errors when trying to build. It first died saying "error: ‘QMessageBox’ was not declared in this scope". I added #include <QMessageBox> to the top of PlatformHal.cpp, but now it is throwing "error: ‘class QString’ has no member named ‘toAscii’". I stopped trying, as I don't exactly trust it at this point. Anyhow, what am I missing?
