Anyone figured out how to start Foxit Reader in HiDPI mode?
I changed the .desktop file to

Exec=env GDK_SCALE=2 GDK_DPI_SCALE=2 CLUTTER_SCALE=2 foxitreader %F

but no go :( I can barely see the icons.

Hello, I've just installed foxitreader but I can't see the icons or fonts ( How can I fix it?

@Muflone The 2017-05-13 update of extra/qt4 has fixed this for me - thanks

is your system fully upgraded?
I cannot simulate your issue in any way.

For the last few days foxitreader refuses to be opened -
/usr/lib/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /usr/lib/foxitreader/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib/

IIRC this occures when an application has been built against an older version of the library than currently installed

Problem solved with the last update.

Thanks Muflone

package updated removing all the QT5 libraries except the PrintSupport which seems broke this package, resulting in a -102.70 MiB difference

@jester and @dantopa
I'm going to slim down this package by removing their bundled libraries.
In the meanwhile you can simply delete the __IN THE FOXITREADER/lib DIRECTORY__ which conflicts with the system library.

Same problem as jester. Also, I'm having problems with spotify and mega.

I get this error when try to run foxitreader.

/usr/lib/foxitreader/FoxitReader: /usr/lib/foxitreader/lib/ version `CXXABI_1.3.8' not found (required by /usr/lib/

I have both files in the correct directories. But I don't know where is the problem.
