@rev.cressy , I had the same issue. It was solved by installing qt5ct and starting it. When you start it, you will probably see "The application is not configured correctly". Press the information button and it will list one or several environment variables that are not set. Set the faulty/missing variables so they are set for your X session. Configure the Qt looks to your liking (you need those variables set to se it), and nethack-qt should start, at least it did for me.

Get this error when I attempt to run nethack-qt:

(process:240542): Gtk-WARNING **: 10:50:03.908: This process is currently running setuid or setgid. This is not a supported use of GTK+. You must create a helper program instead. For further details, see:

Using the official build and their qt5 hint file to generate the QT ui. Currently failing in the packaging phase, as not all files were transfered. Maybe still ran into the multithreaded build issue

This is the official version from the DevTeam compiled with the qt flags and such. It would be awesome if you packaged and released that as nethack-qt4 or something, though!

There is a Qt4 port here:

This is the first aur package I've adopted, but using the below fixes and taking cues from the official nethack package, I bundled everything into a patch, and the current build works for me.

I'm having the same trouble as morion.

Is there a reason why /usr/share/nethack-qt/nethack-qt has SUID set????
