• Having problems installing Ghostwriter


    I tried to use packer to install Ghostwriter and I ran into a conflict between qtchooser and qt5-base. I’m not sure how to proceed. Any help would be appreciated. Below is a printout of my terminal.

    Check the comments section. You have to edit the PKGBUILD and remove qtchooser from the makedepends line
