I get a "permission denied" error.
If I start it with sudo I get:
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'
Segmentation fault
I see /usr/lib/qt/plugins/styles does not exist.
After adding package qt5gtk2 from aur (that adds syle and the qt5gtk2 style in it) and changing the new QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME, still I have the same Segmentation fault.

@Marcouney: very good point, thanks for pointing that out! In fact, I originally intended to use all the directories in /usr/lib/qt/plugins/, but I couldn't do that because including xcbglintegrations/ was crashing XnView (and still does, unfortunately). So instead I replaced the lib directories provided in xnviewmp/lib with symlinks into the system directories. But clearly, even though it is not provided with XnView, styles/ is a directory that can be useful and doesn't crash XnView, so it should be added.

I have pushed 0.87-2, which does this additional symlink. I wonder, should I modify to only set QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME if it is not already set? That would make the lives of people using qt5ct easier, I guess.

qt5ct seems to work if one adds a symbolic link to /usr/lib/qt/plugins/styles in /opt/xnviewmp/lib/.

@waldbaer59: it's great to hear that, thanks for your feedback!

As far as I can see all works like it should. Even better: when Gimp is loaded via xnviewmp, the G'mic plugins don't crash, as it happens with the 'normal' xnviewmp due to qt-version conflicts.

I managed to remove more libraries (everything in lib/, basically), I haven't tested it thoroughly so if you notice new problems please come back to me.

@whoseos You're welcome, glad this solution works for you too! If you remember the crash I mentioned previously, it was due to qt.conf being absent, it works for me as long as it is there, even if it is empty... So I left it there unmodified, nobody has complained so far so I take it as a good sign :-)

Works very nicely on a recently renewed plasma desktop install. Thanks for your efforts, Corax!

Just a hint for those who might be experiencing problems with QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct I downloaded a package in the AUR called qt5gtk2 and I use QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5gtk

qt5gtk is explained well in this article:

Glad it works for you, and thanks for the feedback :-)
