Foxitreader ships its own set of libraries. Previous versions used the system libraries causing a lot of troubles for different version numbers. The new package uses the shipped libraries.

@vigilian and @ltcmdrdata please rebuild the package again

I get an error when I try to start foxitreader.
The installation works without any problem, all packets are up to date:

[jkg@ds9 Downloads]$ foxitreader
/usr/lib/foxitreader/FoxitReader: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/foxitreader/lib/ undefined symbol: OPENSSL_init_library

I tried to update foxitreader and pacman shows that the installed size has increased from 6 Mb to 126 Mb. Is it some glitch?

Thanks. Your new package works very nicely.

You were right, the whole package was lacking the lib directory in the library path. However I didn't changed the system-wide but only changed the application launcher to use the local libraries

I also needed to create two symlinks to stop ldconfig from complaining:

cd /usr/lib/foxitreader/lib
sudo ln -sf
sudo ln -sf

Creating a foxitreader.conf with this content:


And putting it in /etc/ seems to do the trick

After installation i get this:

foxitreader: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The SO is here: /usr/lib/foxitreader/lib/, so does this need to be added to the ld cache?
