As building from code is not possible, the -bin suffix is not required and somewhat silly when it's the only version available.

As this package use precompiled binary, it should have the extension -bin in its name : like "masterpdfeditor-bin". This avoid to install not reviewable code and potentially trojaned one without knowing.

rouelle : I received this comment from Code-Industry (author of master-pdf-editor) for version 4.3.61

"We know about the bug, it is present in French localization only. It will be fixed for the next releases, until then you can switch to Built-in language as a workaround."

I can open any pdf but I can't append any pdf (insert) whose name is not capitalized (i.e. *.PDF instead of *.pdf). The dialog box to open (append) a file is a gtk box (not a qt5 one) which surprise me as Master pdf editor is a qt5 app. I'm using gnome-shell 3.26.2, does it make a difference?

In the append box it is impossible to change the type of file neither change from *.PDF to *.* or *.pdf.

To reproduce:

1. Open a pdf (will work)
2. Menu -> Document -> Insert a document [try to open a pdf file]

--

This behavior is not present using same version (4.3.61) with gnome-shell 3.20 under Ubuntu-Gnome 14.04.3 LTS.

If your AUR helper (yaourt) can't handle deps inside package() then file a bug.

Scimmia commented on 2017-09-18 18:30

No, they are runtime only deps. No reason to move them.

nTia89 commented on 2017-09-18 18:28

why dependency array is inside the package function?
please move the dep array outside (just before makedeps array) the package function

Looking in my /usr/share/applications directory packages using an absolute path are the exception. And I don't see why the desktop file does not run the executable from the package. Only when intentionally overriding $PATH this would be changed. The advantages are simple: It's possible to specify additional environment variables (for themes etc.) and use Firejail etc.

Scimmia commented on 2017-09-02 05:14

I'm not sure that's an advantage. The package installs a .desktop file, it should run the executable from that package.

It also appears that upstream is now shipping a .desktop file, I'll probably switch to that with the next release.

tsuflux commented on 2017-09-01 09:08

Yes, that would be nice. Using $PATH allows users to overwrite/wrap the application without having to overwrite the desktop entry file in ~/.local/share/applications as well.
