AutoKey - PyQt5 - Import Error

Hello everyone!

I’m trying to install AutoKey (pip install autokey). However, when I start the program (autokey-qt) I get this error:

File “/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/autokey/qtui/”, line 20, in
from PyQt5 import Qsci
ImportError: /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/PyQt5/ undefined symbol: _ZdlPvm, version Qt_5

Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?


Hello and welcome,

No, that is not the way to install autokey
pamac build autokey
pamac build autokey-patched
Both are in AUR, but only install one!

@bogdancovaciu same error using pamac, unfortunately.

I started having a similar problem (crash, different error) after an update a few weeks back. I finally narrowed it down to a missing dependency. In my case I was able to fix with pamac install python-qscintilla-qt5. I would suggest trying pamac info autokey and looking at which optional dependencies are not installed and seeing if installing them helps.
