when trying to view an epub using ebook-viewer from the calibre package
(or by directly clicking on an epub in calibre), the program fails with
the message:
   Could not find QtWebEngineProcess

I see that commit d79ec4fd343bc2a72652aa3a4b4ae14bd8df88ac has added
python2-pyqtwebengine and qtwebengine to the calibre inputs, but this
is apparently not enough.

I did not git bisect to see where the problem first appeared, but could
do so if this would help debugging.

thanks to both of your for your patches! I just pushed Brendan's, which
wraps only once at the price of copy-pasting from another package. I confirm
that it works, also to click on an epub file from within calibre. Closing
the two bugs asking about qtwebengine.

Concerning the update, is mathjax a required input now, or could we just
leave it out and update nevertheless?
