Please report bugs/patches on GitHub/AUR-openboard it's a quicker way to reach me :)

@bartus That's strange indeed... I was assuming base-devel is automatically installed if makepkg is available, but apparently not. So I guess this is indeed redundant and we can remove it at the next iteration.

@dS810 You should install base-devel in any case (cf. link from bartus).

@fsiegert Now it works as expected. Thank you!

@fsiegert: including patch in makedepends array is a bit funny not to mention redundant, as it gets installed with base-devel group alongside gcc, as prerequisite to build any AUR package. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ @@wiki@@

@dS810 Can you try again please? I have added 'patch' as explicit dependency.

@fsiegert You are right! Sorry, I've made a bit of a mess with the installation steps! Thanks again for your quick reply.

@fbettio It works fine for me, and your error message looks like you installed OpenBoard, then updated your system (including libpoppler) and then didn't recompile OpenBoard, such that it doesn't find the correct libpoppler.

Btw... rebuild-detector can help with these problems:

Hi. I could not install openboard. An error appeared caused by the dependencies:

$ openboard 
openboard: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The latest poppler installed on my archlinux is 21.03.0-1 (

Did I do something wrong? If no, could you check it?

Thanks a lot in advance, Fabio

@bartus: on Manjaro this does the trick, thanks!

@odabaz: If you intend to stick with quazip:0.9 or you are on Manjaro which is slacking off with updates, you have to roll back openboard package to commit preceding one introducing quazip:1.0 update: fa5004fdc2cc

git -C /tmp clone
git -C /tmp/openboard reset --hard fa5004fdc2c~1
(cd /tmp/openboard; makepkg -i)

As far as I know there isn't any aur-helper that can perform package reset for you, so manual is the only way here.
