Email sent to masterpdfeditor users that might be good to know for the maintainer: *Please note, it changes the naming scheme of Linux packages. Before, Linux package with -qt5.x86_64 postfix has required Qt 5.9. Now, the package with this postfix (namely, master-pdf-editor-5.9.40-qt5.x86_64.deb) requires Qt 5.15. Legacy package with Qt 5.9 explicitly named (master-pdf-editor-5.9.40-qt5.9.x86_64.deb) is also available for older systems.

Added both masterpdfeditor5.desktop and license.txt to the local AUR build for now. Missing files reported upstream.

It looks like the masterpdfeditor.desktop file got lost again. Checking to see how to mitigate...

Thanks for the heads up! I don't see it on the Code Industry website yet, but will package as soon as it's available.

Just about to release version 5.9.4 based on Qt 5.9.15. All packages will be available via the same links, so you can download relevant builds on the website:

Note, that while Qt version is updated, main links remain same.

@pgoetz Thanks! I just tried your PKGBUILD with changes to:

arch=('aarch64' 'x86_64')

And it worked just fine on a 2020 Macbook Air M1 running Asahi linux (based on Archlinux Arm).

But one caveat: the official ARM build is of an older version (v5.8.46) than the x86 build (v5.8.63), which makes it a little bit difficult to update both if catering mostly to the x86 users.

So I guess no need to change anything, instead, I'll spin up an aarch64 aur package when I have time maybe this weekend.

Anyway, thank you very much for maintaining this package and have a nice one!

@m8D2 I wasn't aware that a single PKGBUILD could be used for different architectures? Let me look in to this and if feasible, will do. I'm kind of swamped at this moment, but will look in to this in the next 2 weeks.

Hi @pgoetz

Could you please add ARM version to the source() as well:

For arm64:

@DAC324 I can confirm licenses do not transfer across major upgrades, that is the word of Code Industry support team, but if you ask them, they will send you links to download the last version on which your license is valid, you then only have to grab or write the correct PKGBUILD for that version.
