Thanks for your Answer.

In the migration process one just replace some init packages. Its not a complete new installation.

artix uses archlinux packages wherever they (artix) dont change anything. In the /etc/pacman.conf one
specifies first the artix repositories and below the archlinux repositories.
Packages are normally compatible. artix just replaces those packages which depend on systemd.

And therefore of course i have installed the archlinux qutebrowser package. :-)

Have you any idea why __init__.py says that its not found even if it is installed as before? Where does
it look for this information?
