qt4 was expelled from the official repositories due to

It will not be restored, because software needs to stop using qt4. It's fine for people to still use it via the AUR if they have old software that is not ported, but the proper solution is to get that software ported to qt5.

"It takes a long time to compile" is not a reason to move it to community.


Only Developers and Trusted Users have access to, and we will not be uploading qt4 there. If we wanted qt4, we would upload it to community, but we don't -- we have managed to move every package still being actively maintained in the official repos, over to qt5, and we want to stay that way.


Again, the proper long-term solution is to get software ported over to qt5.

Here's the latest binary version:

The 'shiboken' package lists qt4 as a dependency but requires the QtXmlPatterns, which are no longer built using the current PKGBUILD, one would need to add the -xmlpatterns option to the ./configure script in PKGBUILD for the correct build.

@SunDoctor, you could see how to perform clean chroot build here or just try to install binary package from here

@dviktor: i'm not so advanced to make 'clean chroot'. I did it as user with 'makepkg -s'

Thx a lot for the link to the binary!

Cheers, p.

@SunDoctor, did you try build in clean chroot?

There could be a binary version of qt4 in AUR. Isn't a good idea?

@mozo Thank you!
