For the sake of completeness: The older versions (4.3 in particular) are no longer distributed by Code Industry. Hence, the older build files do no longer work since they are unable to fetch the source. Unfortunately, the license does not allow redistribution of the package, and thus we cannot archive the old sources here. Consequently, the masterpdfeditor4 package mentioned by ArchNemo has been deleted, for the same reason.

If you happen to have a source archive from 4.3 still lying around on your drive (in particular, master-pdf-editor-4.3.89_qt5.amd64.tar.gz with SHA1 254e05e0845ff73b7c932280c2bbe8d22aa4934c), keep a copy and use the old PKGBUILD from

4.3 has already been packaged separately.

This version (v5) is useless. You'll need to install version 4.3 like this:

curl -L -O; tar -xvf aur-37957387c8d9.tar.gz; cd aur-37957387c8d9; makepkg -si

Please, separate version 4.3!

Not gonna happen. The i686 version is Qt4.

Can you please add i686 architecture to your package? Thanks.

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

@ArchNemo: Use LibreOffice Draw.

@ArchNemo: Not saying that there is no free (and/or open source) alternative, but at least I'm not aware of any. You might want to use the masterpdfeditor4 AUR package to get the latest release from the 4.3 series, but take note that nobody knows how long the corresponding sources will be available from the manufacturer.

Given that the v5 free version is nearly useless, do we have any opensource alternatives?

@jingyu9575, I used this old PKGBUILD file ( id=37957387c8d9 ) to install last version 4.3.
