This package doesn't need any fix to build.
You have to update the qt-installer-framework before to launch the foxitreader installation.
Here's a forced update which requires an higher version to avoid this issues.

You need the following patch for the PKGBUILD: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/cc97db0d5aa36e003f797d53e8507a7f.

Update qt-installer-framework before updating foxitreader to avoid build failures

Removed the fcitx and fcitx-qt5 dependencies

@phunni I've just checked the EULA checksum and it still matches.
Maybe your download is corrupt

@Muflone

The recent package update seems to have resolved the problem, and I was able to successfully install foxitreader via AUR just a couple of minutes ago. Cheers.

@phunni

Maybe foxit constantly changes their eula.html. You can edit the PKGBUILD and skip the sha256sum check of this file.
