@pallegro Thanks for the updated PKGBUILD!

@Tomek80Bytom I just updated the PKGBUILD, it should build again now. PhotoQt links against various libraries and if one of them updates then the library files sometimes change names (e.g., the new version number gets added). Unfortunately there is nothing I can do, PhotoQt (like other apps) needs to be rebuilt (actually, re-linked would be enough) to find these libraries again...

pallegro commented on 2019-05-22 12:55 is the fix for building with exiv-0.27 PKGBUILD:

@Tomek80Bytom try qimgv — pretty similar nice alternative

The application is very good itself, but unfortunately I have regularly problems, that after updates of some system packages it stop working and I have to reinstall it. Yesterday has occurred the same... application doesn't work on my machine now. More over, currently it is impossible to reinstall it because there are some issues with build.

@luspi My guess problem was in KDE session management, it's always saves unwanted states of some important programs, so it brings a lot of bugs, and I always forget about it =)

So yeah, now all works just fine! Thanks for the help mate ;)

@ruestique A simple rebuild of photoqt will suffice (make sure to start with a clean setup - do you use an aur helper?). Essentially all that needs to happen is for the executable to be linked against the new poppler libs.

@luspi I also checked poppler and poppler-qt5, but cannot --overwrite it, since I don't know the <path>

@ruestique reinstall is not enough, poppler update necessitates recompile. I bumped pkgrel to trigger recompiles.

@3enke They are created to allow the option of 'fake transparency'. The screenshots need to be done before the app window is shown, they are thus taken and stored in the tmp directory at startup of PhotoQt.
