version 5.0.0
-- add support for creating LUKS volumes that only uses a detached header.The detached header will be created in the
user home directory and the volume can not be unlocked without this detached header.The detached header can be
reattached later on through zuluCrypt-gui->menu->Volumes->Restore Volume Header.
-- its now possible to create a shared mount point when unlocking a volume in zuluCrypt-gui
-- its now possible to unlock VeraCrypt volumes from favorite feature in zuluCrypt-gui
-- add complete French translation to both zuluCrypt-gui and zuluMount-gui
-- try to silently solve problems caused by other tools mounting zuluCrypt's encryption mapper.
-- add support for creating a "plain dm-crypt" volume at a "none zero offset".This type of volume is useful as a
"poor man's version of a hidden volume feature in TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt".Best thing about this type of hidden
volume is that the outer volume can be anything including an "exposed file system".Currently,only zuluMount-gui can
open this type of volume by clicking "options" followed by "Set Volume Offset" on the mounting dialog prompt.
-- Qt5 is now the default Qt dependency.

Following @mhogomchungu suggestion, I restored the source URL.
No need to upgrade if you already have V4.8.0

@mhogomchungu @pekka
Thanks for your tests and your help. I have updated both packages (standard and git) with the "libxkbcommon-x11" dependency. 3rd update in less than 24 hours ;-)

@mhogomchungu : you are now an Arch expert !

nice !
confirm , "libxkbcommon-x11"

mhogomchungu commented on 2015-09-03 15:34

I found the required package and its called "libxkbcommon-x11"[1].

Add this package and zuluCrypt will start normally,remove it and it will fail with the reported error.

Installing any package like "QT5-declarative" that will bring with them "libxkbcommon-x11" will also solve the problem.

@salan54 and @mhogomchungu
I unistalled all qt5...(zulu,qt5-base,QT5-declarative,QT5-xmlpatterns....)
and test a lot ...

zulucrypt works when installed qt5-base and QT5-declarative

zulucrypt not works when installed qt5-base and only QT5-xmlpatterns
