Compton is Broken

Compton does not start from menu. When started from terminal as "$ compton-conf" it gives 20 lines (!) of the same error:
(compton-conf:28882): Gtk-WARNING **: 13:17:48.788: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine".

It does, though start anyway, but only from terminal with the above whole page of errors.

It doesn't work out of the box on lxqt. Its broken there. Please investigate.

the latest version should be Qt based program so no GTK warnings should appear unless you set something crazy for Qt.

PS bonus: Conmpton in Archlinux was replaced by fork called "picom"
Man is as good as his tools.

That was clean 11th May ISO. I have nothing installed and nothing set up. This was the default Artix setup.

If so the borken libary should be substituted for the software/libary Arch is using by default (they use the fork). Otherwise its broken.

Yes, because Qt5 5.15  breaking some UI, actually we can only wait for fix by mainstream.

qt5-styleplugins is broken,w need from AUR 5.0.0.20170311-22.
qt5-base-5.15.0-2 fix some  icons
Qt5ct-0.41-4 is broken too, fix exist now  and coming soon to archlinux.

 Stay tuned  :)

In the meantime I got at least Keepassxc working again by following the instructions at News (https://artixlinux.org/news.php#Qt_5.15_changes).

It worked by setting  the QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE line to motif (from its previous value gtk) at /etc/environment
Code: [Select]
QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=motif

"kvantum-dark" didn't work for me. I also tried "gtk2" from the list but it didn't work either.
Other options from the styles list might work but I haven't tested yet.
