I like this program so much. But I do not know why I cannot drag or paste SVG to libreoffice impress. Also when I try to drag or paste PDF or EPS to impress, the picture looks bitmap but not vector format.

Besides, I notice that indeed automoc4 and kdebase-runtime are not necessary (I am using Manjaro with kernel 4.14 and KDE). I also tried compiling with these two packages, but it does not solve the above problem.

Thanks for the great help. I have update the PKGBUILD to make the compilation work.

before it starts Building locate the file klatexformula/src/klatexformula-4.0.0/src/klftools/klfadvancedconfigeditor.cpp and add #include <QAction>

As I am using yay it is located on $HOME/.cache/yay/klatexformula/src/klatexformula-4.0.0/src/klftools/klfadvancedconfigeditor.cpp

If you are using yaourt the path will be different.

@mazetas, I cannot compile either. May be need to use older version GCC.

@dfk, qt5-svg dependency added.

dfk commented on 2018-02-01 16:26

Also needs qt5-svg to build for me.

@LukeLR, added qt5-tools as dependencies. It should fix the build.

This package unfortunately does not work as-is, I had to install qt5-tools in order for compilation to work. Otherwise I'd get the following error:

CMake Error at src/klftools/CMakeLists.txt:158 (find_package):
By not providing "FindQt5Designer.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project
has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
"Qt5Designer", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5Designer" with
any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "Qt5Designer" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
"Qt5Designer_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If
"Qt5Designer" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it
has been installed.

I think, this should be fixed somehow (if necessary, add qt5-tools to dependencies?)

This should install to /usr, not /usr/local, you can achieve this by passing -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr to cmake.

According to the Arch Packaging Standards, packages should never be installed to /usr/local
