I fixed the PKGBUILD for myself, maybe someone will be useful. To update the .SRCINFO just run "makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO"

UPD: I also changed the foxitreader.patch for consistency with the original

Package is out of date.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

Replace the second sha256 checksum in the PKGBUILD with


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.

The foxit reader UI font is somehow falling back to monospace font. How can I fix this issue? Screenshot:

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

Here a shortened log from the open operation:

CReader_AppEx::OpenURL---url: ""
CReader_AppEx::CheckTrustySites--m_nSiteAccessRight: 3
CReader_AppEx::CheckTrustySites--m_csSitesDataManage: ""
kde-open5: /usr/lib/foxitreader/lib/ no version information available (required by kde-open5)
 >>> is repeated very often for many different combinations of libraries
kde-open5: /usr/lib/foxitreader/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib/
kde-open5: relocation error: /usr/lib/ symbol _ZN15QGuiApplication16platformFunctionERK10QByteArray, version Qt_5 not defined in file with link time reference

EDIT: Apparently, this is because 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 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 or am I missing something?
