Description Petr Fischer 2016-11-09 00:08:24 UTC
In some apps (like virtualbox or vlc) this erro roccurs when starting app: ------------ Qt FATAL: This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "". Available platform plugins are: minimal, offscreen, xcb. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Abort trap ------------ Manually running "pkg upgrade -f qt5-gui" helps, but it is IMHO a problem/bug. Look at: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=214339

Same problem and solution with ports-mgmt/portrac. I think there is something missing in the Makefile USE_QT5= gui does not help. Maybe any LIB_BEPENDS?

This solution *kind of* worked. "pkg upgrade" alone was not finding any upgrades since last time and the latest version I always got was "qt5-gui-5.6.2", which causes the problem. So I had to manually download the "qt5-gui-5.6.2_1.txz" file from the servers and then "pkg add" it. Even now, running "pkg upgrade -f qt5-gui" wants to downgrade the working 5.6.2_1 version and install version 5.6.2.
