CopyQ scripts error after plasma6 update

All my copyQ scripts now don’t work, they all throw the same error execve: No such file or directory Im sure its probably just me missing something but i cant figure it.

Host: greg-optiplex7050 Kernel: 6.6.30-2-MANJARO arch: x86_64 bits: 64
Desktop: KDE Plasma v: 6.0.4 Distro: Manjaro Linux

❱copyq --version
CopyQ Clipboard Manager 8.0.0
Qt: 5.15.12
KNotifications: 5.115.0
Compiler: GCC
Arch: x86_64-little_endian-lp64
OS: Manjaro Linux

testing with just a single line of script. I assign x = 1, set it to execute on a shortcut key and it errors.

  • Plasma 6 is based upon qt6. copyq is a qt5 application. I’m not sure how well that would work with a qt6 cllipboard.

  • Also, copyq is for Wayland, but due to a Wayland problem with qt 6.7 — which is what the current version of Plasma was built against — Manjaro Plasma is defaulting to X11 for the time being. You can still use Wayland, but the default setting that came with the upgrade is X11. So you may need to check which display server you’re running at the moment.

Hi sorry i got no email notification, which is odd.

Im on X11 , always have been. In fact i have remained on X11 specifically because copyq was said not to work properly on Wayland. Its always been fine on X11 up until now.

I have posted this question on the github 5 days ago but no response :frowning:


Yea. I mean it all works it just wont execute its own script but if you put the same command into an external shell to copyq then it works fine e.g. copyq popup 'Hello, World!' executes without problem so it does not seem like a pyqt6 problem, but what do i know :smile:

The dev could at least say something, like what the time table is for a update, if there is to be an update for qt6

Ok, thank you.
