@THS: thanks for the fix.

@to the maintainers 'nic96' and 'felihommen': it could be interesting to add "ln -sf /usr/lib/libz.so.1 /usr/lib/kiwix/xulrunner/libz.so.1" + 'zlib' dependency to the PKGBUILD, to fix the issue reported in the comments permanently (the issue: "/usr/lib/kiwix/xulrunner/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/libpng16.so.16...").

@THS , thanks your workaround. That fix my problem.

If you want to get the this version working just replace the libz.so.1 with the current one.

sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/libz.so.1 /usr/lib/kiwix/xulrunner/libz.so.1

Now Kiwix is functional again.

I try kiwix-cli-git from https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/kiwix-cli-git/ and it works very well. It uses the new official repository on github https://github.com/kiwix/kiwix.
Tip: You can just start kiwix with `$ kiwix-serve --port=2222 Zimfile1 Zimfile2` and open it with 127.0.0.1:2222 in browser. For other parameters please check --help.
