I think this should really use qt5 and then the qt5 derivative of this package should merged into here.

masterpdfeditor-qt5 was added to AUR
thank you
hope this resolve the issue behind Qt4 / Qt5

pavbaranov commented on 2015-06-07 12:48

If somebody want to use Qt5 version (64bit only), should:
1. Download tarball and extract it and move to masterpdfeditor directory
2. Move
masterpdfeditor.install to masterpdfeditor-qt5.install
masterpdfeditor.desktop to masterpdfeditor-qt5.desktop
3. Replace existing PKGBUILD with this one:
[code]# Maintainer: Miguel Revilla <>
# Contributor: Ferik <djferik at gmail dot com>
# Contributor for Qt5 version: pavbaranov

pkgdesc="A complete solution for creation and editing PDF files. (Free for non-commercial use)"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

MasterPDFEditor 3.0.62 is built against of Qt4 (>=4.8.1) for 32bit and 64bit version or Qt5 (>=5.4.1) only one package for 64bit version. See:
This PKGBUILD built package from then it's Qt4 version

Well, I was wrong.

revert in to qt4. I saw that app using native Plasma Breeze theming in all (dialog boxes too) and this misled me.

masterpdfeditor need only qt4 = not lib32-qt4- this is native qt4 app and lib are from qt4 - not from lib32-qt4.

Apologize for that.
