**EDIT:** Never mind I'm installing qt-installer-framework now with makepkg.
I just don't understand why the foxitreader package doesn't do this for me.
Thanks for this package.

What's up with the qt-installer-framework dependency?

Can you input Chinese character with fcitx input method? I failed to active the input method in the program.

On Linux Foxit Reader is associated to *every* file type. If a file type does not have a default application, it opens with Foxit Reader. Since Foxit is a PDF viewer, open a non-PDF file with it causes an error.

To avoid Foxit Reader to be associated to every file type, the MimeType entry in FoxitReader.desktop msut be modified from

Here is an updated patch to fix this annoying bug:

Like @nickmcummins, I would also like to change the default font used by Foxit Reader, I'm using cinnamon DE. Can someone point me where I can change it?

cd /usr/lib/foxitreader/
sudo chmod 0777 configtoolbar.xml

Here is a patch to update to version 2.2.1025:
On startup, however, this version of Foxit Reader complains several times about a failure to open /usr/lib/foxitreader/configtoolbar.xml and the toolbar looks somewhat distorted. It looks like it tries to open this file for writing.

If you are finding the download speeds slow. Edit the PKGBUILD and change the links from cdn01 to cdn09

I found a fix for the monospace problem: in KDE5 there's no KDEHOME variable in the environment and defining it(i.e. by making `alias foxit='KDEHOME=~/.kde4 foxitreader` solves it.

On the other hand, there's another thing: There's simple way to solve problem with "connectedpdf" nags, it's necessary to rename /usr/lib/foxitreader/fxplugins directory to anything else - like stated in
