Please remove

Conflicts With  : jfbpdf

There is no "jfbpdf" anymore. It only confuses users. The only conflict should be with "jfbview-git"

Just want to upvote this project and thank farseerfc (jichu4n) for creating the AUR package.

I works wonderfully in the console. The search and TOC functinality is very polished and usefull.

I tested and use a lot of pdf and image console viewers like, (gives fbi and fbpdf on arch) and (fbpdf2). But this one is definetly the most polished

I want to report that it compiles and works perfectly on the raspberry pi 2 and on ARM chromebooks, that is "armv7h".

So, to repeat @zertyz request, please update the PKGBUILD to include "armv6h" and "armv7h"

zertyz commented on 2019-08-08 22:32 (UTC)

Thank you for sharing your project. Please include other platforms on your PKGBUILD -- like armv6h (Raspberry Pi 1), as it works neatly there. This package is specially useful for "standalone" operation (without the X aparatus) on such devices.

-- In order to reduce the package size, you might consider using dynamically linked binaries for ArchLinux, since you can assure the user will have the required libs...

Updated to 0.5.5 for compatibility with libmupdf 1.12.

sameer commented on 2018-02-22 14:32 (UTC)

It's not compatible with the latest version of libmupdf (1.12.0-2) at the moment.

@mxfm sorry I should have say pacman ... It might be a problem introduced by the merging of libtinfo into ncurses, and should have been fixed by the newer version of ncurses.

mxfm commented on 2017-12-12 07:02 (UTC)

@farseerfc OK, current version compiles.

I have ncurses 6.0+20170902-3. I have no pacaur, but running pacman -Qo yeilds

/usr/lib/ is owned by ncurses 6.0+20170902-3

farseerfc commented on 2017-12-12 06:46 (UTC)

@mxfm @FergusonTG cannot reproduce your problem. Can you provide your version of ncurses? And the output of pacaur -Qo /usr/lib/

I have error when compiling the package: "undefined reference to symbol 'keypad'"

jichu4n commented on 2017-08-14 02:28 (UTC)

Updated to version 0.5.4 to fix compatibility with MuPDF 1.11.

farseerfc commented on 2017-06-05 18:10 (UTC)

@farwayer @arenevier please report the error to upstream , I suspect this error is due to a change in mupdf public APIs.

farwayer commented on 2017-06-02 16:58 (UTC)

The same error :(

Whoa, that was fast! Thanks!!

farseerfc commented on 2016-12-12 07:20 (UTC)

@jichu4n updated and thanks! btw I added you as the co-maintainer.

jichu4n commented on 2016-12-12 06:53 (UTC)

Could you update this package to 0.5.3? This fixes build errors with MuPDF 1.10a, which is the current version in Arch. Thanks!
