Thanks everyone for your patience, and sorry for missing WorMzy's comment! I updated the PKGBUILD based on the [community] one, so it now has the new python-pyqtwebengine dependency, and uses qutebrowser's Makefile (which installs the scripts).

Since Qt5.12 the QtWebEngine python bindings have been moved to their own package. Probably this should be reflected in the dependency list: python-pyqtwebengine

No response to WorMzy, but I second that request. is necessary to have spellchecker working. The workaround was to download the Arch package, extract it, and then pull from there. I don't think that should be necessary.

Please could $srcdir/qutebrowser/scripts/* be added to the package, or have these been omitted deliberately? (particularly interested in

@jasonwryan Looks like you don't have the newest PKGBUILD.

The new desktop location fails for me:

Installing qutebrowser script to /home/jason/Build/qutebrowser-git/pkg/qutebrowser-git/usr/bin
install: cannot stat 'qutebrowser.desktop': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Deleting those lines from the PKGBUILD allows a successful build.

@joemaro QtWebEngine will become the default backend with v1.0 somewhen later this year, at that point I agree it's a hard dependency. Before that, it's not, just like qt5-webengine isn't.

Where do you see "you recommend the people to use the webengine backend on the startpage of the browser and call the old engine "legacy""? I recommend people to not use a legacy QtWebKit, but there's also a newer QtWebKit, and Archlinux has packaged that as qt5-webkit since recently.

python-opengl is imo a dependency: you recommend the people to use the webengine backend on the startpage of the browser and call the old engine "legacy" and then it won't run with webengine without having pyopengl installed.

python-opengl is already listed as an optional dependency, just like qt5-webengine is.

qutebrowser did not run because of missing python-opengl.
What speaks against ading `python-opengl` as a dependency?
