@archimedescrewed all the dependencies in the base-devel group are meant to be preinstalled for the AUR packages are not specified in the PKGBUILDs

Install base-devel and try again

Why does this not pull its own dependencies? What a cf. Install failed - pkg-config is not installed Install failed - cmake is not installed Install failed - bison is not installed Install failed - still can't find bison even though you just installed bison What even is this?

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 ?
