This package recently introduced into the community repository:

Has a name conflict with an older aur package of the same name:

This will cause undesired behavior as anyone with the current aur package could be "upgraded" to a completely unrelated KDE package.

I suggest that it be renamed to "pix-maui",similar to the aur package "pix-maui-git". Or "maui-pix", which is the name suggested by the maintainer of maui/pix.

(Should also be noted that linuxmint/pix and maui/pix do still conflict as both provide /usr/bin/pix)
This task depends upon
