@jorgedcc: After searching online a bit, I decided to post regarding this font issue on the official Foxit forums. I'll update my comment here if/once they get back on how to set the default application font. I'm using xfce4 but I don't think the solution would be any different on another DE like Cinnamon.

I managed to update to v2.3.0.2174 by changing the .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD files.
But, Muflone, could you keep this package updated please?

**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
MimeType=application/pdf;application/octet-stream;
to
MimeType=application/pdf;


Here is an updated patch to fix this annoying bug: http://pastebin.com/0Ggygssd

Hello,

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?

Thanks,

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

;)

Here is a patch to update to version 2.2.1025: http://pastebin.com/31VHugi9
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
