Experiencing multiple crashes of FoxitReader ( when highlighting text. No warning, nothing; the app just quits and requires relaunching. Work not committed to disk is lost. This may not be related to FoxitReader per se, but rather to its execution environment as the anomalous behavior started 4 days ago for me, with no recent FoxitReader update.

One of my users claims foxitreader has lost the "print to file" option in the print dialog. xpdf on the same system still has it.

Could this be fallout of the last update? Does it work for anybody else?

@Cbhihe check your /usr/share/applications or ~/.local/share/applications directories, you will have two different launchers into them, the package only installs one launcher in /usr/share/applications

Just reinstalled Foxitreader and I am now stuck with 2 copies in Gnome Dash. One has the usual FoxitReader icon and the other has no icon (see screenshot at: I can click on either one to launch the same executable.

How can I get rid of the launcher dupe with no icon ?

@medmedin I think someone would need to create a foxitreader-bin

@muflone , for now every app in AUR is providing binary based package to avoid those annoying compiling steps, so why not change this package and make it based on already Linux 64bits compiled binary ?

There is an error in line 101 of PKGBUILD: wrong permissions of the .desktop file are set. Desktop file should not have an execution permission ("install -m 644 ..." should suffice).

It can't open a URL of a PDF doc in my KDE desktop.

KDE 5.81.0 / Plasma 5.21.4

I tried to find the log in terminal. This is the error message when I click the link in PDF.

kde-open5: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN20QPlatformIntegration7destroyEv, version Qt_5_PRIVATE_API

Dose anyone know how to solve it?

If you include the version byte of the header in your grep string you only get valid 7z files.

grep --only-matching --byte-offset --binary --text -P '7z\xBC\xAF\x27\x1C\x00\x03'
