@BlackDex, no worries. I appreciate the report!

@jhenson, i'm sorry, for some reason even after cleaning all the cache it still reported the issue.

I cleaned everything again, and now it worked. Sorry for flagging it out-of-date.

@BlackDex the desktop patch was fixed and pushed yesterday.

BlackDex commented on 2020-03-27 07:56

The .desktop file has been changed upstream and causes this package to fail now.

@timmyfromspace you don't need to apply the patch anymore. The issue @BlackDex reported has been fixed in the package.

Woops, I thought I removed usr/ from the desktop patch but it looks like I forgot to commit and push it. Thanks for the report.

There are new pre-build qt5-*-595 packages available to download from To easy download all these files download i created a list to be used with wget: wget -i <>

# --- Download them all, install them with yay for example like: yay -U qt5-*.

# --- Then download this AUR package locally and cd to the directory: yay -G plex-media-player-git ; cd plex-media-player-git.

# --- There are some differences/errors to fix with the .desktop file, and make sure the build will use the correct QT Libraries. Download the following patch: wget -O qt595.patch <> Apply the patch git apply qt595.patch

# --- Now you should be able to use makepkg to build the git version with using the qt595 version.

Whelp, maybe I won't do that. The qt5-pmp-base package doesn't compile anymore out of the box.

jhenson commented on 2020-01-06 21:24

Upstream is saying they won't be fixing this issue right now:

I'm going to switch this package over to using the qt5-pmp-* that provide QT 5.9.5.
