I fixed the PKGBUILD for myself, maybe someone will be useful. https://pastebin.com/kjGhqpxu To update the .SRCINFO just run "makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO"

UPD: I also changed the foxitreader.patch for consistency with the original https://pastebin.com/tZNaLSr4

Package is out of date. also as it stands, this foxitreader 2.4.1.0609-10 package fails during checksum validation for the eula.html file.

jalencar commented on 2018-09-09 07:01

Replace the second sha256 checksum in the PKGBUILD with

7814e03ea944f5ee5ff791e97c13446a5274989a1679758a92af0405d0fc7dce

if your eula.html is failing during build process.

Thanks for your work! As previously asked, please remove application/octet-stream mime type, which is irrelevant.

Experiencing the same problem mentioned by @birthstalker : UI fonts is monospaced.

birthstalker commented on 2018-03-20 12:43

The foxit reader UI font is somehow falling back to monospace font. How can I fix this issue? Screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/cf8id

After the update using the packaged Qt again, opening URLs embedded in the PDF is broken.

Here a shortened log from the open operation:

EDIT: Apparently, this is because libQt5X11Extras.so.5 is not packaged so it will load the one provided by arch - which crashes because of the internal private APIs

Printing now works with the latest build. Thanks

@RemoteAdmin the libqgtk2.so plugin is not required to run foxitreader. It's only used to apply GTK+ appearance if gtk2 is available. If you lack the gtk2 package then you'll get the QT file chooser even if you use a GTK+ base desktop environment. If you have gtk2 installed then you'll have the GTK+ file chooser.

By the way I've found more missing dependencies, I'll add gtk2 to optdepends

@Muflone Sorry for bothering again but is there a reason for not including gtk2? It is required by libqgtk2.so or am I missing something?

/usr/lib/foxitreader/platformthemes/libqgtk2.so needs libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
