Hi, I found namespace error in the current anki version for linux, which one was installed on debian 10 with apt.

File "/usr/share/anki/aqt/webview.py", line 90, in <module>
    class AnkiWebView(QWebEngineView):
NameError: name 'QWebEngineView' is not defined

Temporary sollution which I made to start anki, was adding wildcard import from PyQt5.QtWebEngineWidgets

With best regards, and many thanks for anki development

    Linux packagers regularly break things I'm afraid:

    Third party Linux packages and source builds are not supported
