For running the node graph in rqt the pydot library python-pydot is needed.

Thank you and please excuse the time it took to correct that (holiday season, hooray!).

This PKGBUILD does not differentiate between makedepends and depends currently and I think I'm not deep enough into ROS2 development on Arch Linux to sort it all out.

For building libxrandr is needed by rviz_ogre_vendor.

For running rviz2 qt5-svg is needed. (otherwise rviz2 cannot load SVG pixmap packages for cursors)

python-lark-parser is a dependency for ros_idlgenerator_c.

python-sip (and possibly sip) are needed for qt_gui_cpp.

These packages are also listed in the Wiki

After successful installation, running a ros2 topic echo leads to several warnings of the format Failed to load entry point 'create_key': No module named 'lxml'. Adding python-lxml to the dependencies solves that problem. Possibly this is an upstream issue?

log4cxx (AUR) is a new dependency for compiling rcl_logging_log4cxx and, consequently, rcl.
