Without trying I expect the biggest obstacle will be to have an ARM native Qt library. At this point, Subsurface uses Qt5 and nobody has started a transition to Qt6 yet and it might well be that there will never be an ARM version of Qt5.

Well, for now I’m happy with Rosetta of course. Thanks, I hope Qt6 will be migrated in the future.
