Hello together,

i recently switched from archlinux to artix linux. (following the migration guide)

Since then qutebrowser refuses to start with the following error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/qutebrowser", line 5, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3250, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3234, in _call_aside

    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 786, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'qutebrowser==0.5.0' distribution was not found and is required by the application

Has any one an idea whats wrong or where to search?

(Things like reinstall all needed python, qt and the qutebrowser package did not help btw.)

Thanks a lot to all :-)
