Hi, the package now depends on vulkan-headers.

qmake works without issues since qt5-base 5.4.0-3
Happy Testing ;)

Using qt5-base 5.4.0-2 (available in few hours in the repos), I just built this by simply doing:

git clone git://
cd qtwayland
qmake LIBS+="-lXrender"

Please clean your PKGBUILD. Thanks.

Stable base 5.4 + -dev is clearly broken since face2023e41723e48f044977ebf76577d2313992 , do not even attempt to compile with this commit
I think it's best to use branches specific for installed major version of qt5-base

qmake from repo is still heavily broken

xcb-util-renderutil is probably a dependency (which is most probably lost somewhere in repo, or just makedep there)

Well, we could try qupzilla-webengine-git

It looks like qt5-webkit is broken… it would be the best to just dump all qt5 packages to AUR until actual maintainer would take over -.-
This situation is almost 1 year old already ;(

1. Thank TheAifam5 (fixups for api breakage, unrelated to FS#38819) and kovidgoyal (qmake part)
2. Click watch/vote on FS#38819, make BaSh finally fix his qt5-base package/build_environment (cannot pinpoint which one - too low resources to compile it so many times) which contains completely¹ broken qmake. Qt5-wayland gives best reproducibility because QT5 guys wont fix their framework to compile under special qmake from arch -.-
Other projects care about not losing userbase and are adding those crazy hacks directly into their projects, which is then applied for every distro out there -.-
3. To reproduce FS#38819 remove QMAKE_LIBS_PRIVATE (but ofc, do not remove ".." that is written after it)
4. If app is using qt5 - it might be not enough if other components are relying on X11 like webkit. I will try to investigate which package fails first to compile against wayland for qupzilla (because it would be great to have browser under pure wayland)

¹ if it was gcc and it was producing in some cases slightly different binaries in arch only …

Thanks for the work! After building and installing this, '$ qupzilla --platform wayland' still "could not find or load the Qt platform plugin wayland," do I need to something with qt5-base or qupzilla?

Not sure, but i probably also need input from ARM guys… not sure if they are still using this AUR
