Qt applications crash with the following error message :

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Installing the "libxkbcommon-x11" package fixed this problem. Perhaps it should be added as a dependency to Qt ?

Additional info:
* qt5-base-5.5.1-3
* libxkbcommon-x11-0.5.0-1-i686
* tested on a Virtual Box with ArchLinux freshly updated

Steps to reproduce:

Run a Qt 5 application with libxkbcommon-x11 package not installed. (I tested with a PyQt 5 app but the problem does not seem to be Python-related).
