Package source was changed. Recently, I have patched the latest poppler-0.76, which grants sub-pixel smoothing ability to poppler-based PDF viewers, such as Evince, Okular and TeXstudio, without contaminating their source code. Just install the three AUR packages by running "yay -Sd poppler-lcd poppler-glib-lcd poppler-qt5-lcd". The original Okular, Evince will employ my subpixel-enabled "Cairo" engine. See "" for more details.

if you're non English speaker, and find it lacks i18n, please change the source to$pkgver/src/okular-$pkgver.tar.xz

and change _pkgname to okular-$pkgver

Added okular to "provides" entry, and poppler url was changed to HTTPS.

I get an error when using the kdegraphics-meta package:

:: Installing okular-lcd-standalone package(s)... loading packages... resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... :: okular-lcd-standalone and okular are in conflict. Remove okular? [y/N] error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: removing okular breaks dependency 'okular' required by kdegraphics-meta

If you add okular to "provides", that should fix it and make sense generally, right?

Please change the source url of poppler to the TLS encrypted https variant instead of plain http for increased security, I tested it and it worked perfectly! Thanks in advance! :)

This version of okular enables subpixel rendering of PDF documents for better display on LCD screen. The default backend is Cairo instead of Splash. The standalone package has integrated a patched version of poppler-0.43 libraries, so packages which depend on higher version of poppler/poppler-glib package will NOT be affected. The package cairo-infinality (or cairo-infinality-ultimate) should also be installed to improve font rendering with CAIRO_LCD_FILTER_DEFAULT.
