Works fine as-is for me. No idea what might be going on with Manjaro.

Thank you for maintaining this wonderful application in AUR.
BUT I'm unable to edit pdf files through it with the default installation using pacman front-end "pamac". Only commenting pdf seems to be allowed.
I used to be a ubuntu user and in this distro, full-editing for 'home use' was possible out-of-the-box.
Please tell how to uncripple this qt-5 version of masterpdfedit (for free I hope).
Registration at code-industry.net seems to be charged (no free home-using registration appears (at least today)).
Thank you very much (I run Manjaro on amd64, DE=Xfce).

Permissions are correct. Do you have a screwy umask set?

I get a permission error after installing this package:

$ ls -al /opt/
drwx------ 1 root root 142 Feb 11 17:21 master-pdf-editor-4

# ls -al /opt/master-pdf-editor-4/
total 26M

Maybe line 23 in the PKGBUILD " cp -a --no-preserve=ownership master-pdf-editor-${pkgver%%.*} "$pkgdir/opt/" "should be changed to preserve ownership?

But it won't update from a repo and that's not covered.
Anyway, your package, you don't have to do it properly if you don't want to. That's the meaning of aur ;)

Scimmia commented on 2017-01-25 16:58

And masterpdfeditor-qt5 has always conflicted with this, so that's covered.

ranger commented on 2017-01-25 16:40

In the aur not, but it helps if you use a local or online repo.
But even without a repo, if you try to install masterpdfeditor together with masterpdfeditor-qt5 you will have an error. 'replaces' or 'conflicts' is a way to tell pacman that two packages can't be install together.

replaces doesn't do anything in the AUR

ranger commented on 2017-01-25 15:33

If this is the new Qt5 version, shouldn't you include a
replaces=('masterpdfeditor-qt5')
line in the PKGBUILD?

Scimmia commented on 2017-01-25 07:06

This is now the Qt5 version. If you need the Qt4 version, it's available under masterpdfeditor-qt4.
