Won't launch. When launching from a console I get:

spectacle: symbol lookup error: spectacle: undefined symbol: _ZN12KDeclarative12KDeclarative12setupContextEv

Similar bugs on the KDE bug tracker suggest it is a compilation issue

Has never worked since installation

Additional info:
* package version(s) 18.04.0-1
* config and/or log files etc. none

depends=(xcb-util-cursor libkipi purpose knewstuff)

which version of kdeclarative?
Comment by Alexis Phoenix (throbscottle) - Thursday, 03 May 2018, 12:46 GMT
kdeclarative 5.44.0-1

I just upgraded to 5.45.0-1 - spectacle works now. Perhaps it needs to pull the correct version in as a dependency?

Many thanks :)
