Version 7.0.328.1 is out and the PKGBUILD no longer works.

Rectification: I don't know why the program crashed two days ago, but now it works well.

@swearchnick Thank you for your advice and for packaging this very useful piece of software. Effectively, now it works better, but I always have some crash. If it can help you to understand, I show here ( the error log.

@micman Sorry, but can't reproduce. Everything is working here including annotate. Have you deleted $HOME/.pdf-xchange and tried again?

@swearchnick "Package reverted to 64-bit again". In my system pdf-xchange 64-bit doesn't work correctly. More exactly, it is unusable. For example, it crashes every time that I try to save a document. I have not been able to install this great software --currently for me the best PDF program-- using a 32-bit Wine environment also if I followed the official instructions about winearch ( Now I have found this solution: I have installed PDF-XChange EditorV7.x86.msi through wine-3.9. For now, it works very well, except for the default PDF application. When I click on a PDF file, PDF-XChange Editor starts, but the file does not open. For the rest, all works fine.

@rvasilev, Did some testing now and you were right the bug is resolved. I don't know when but version 7 was also affected. Package reverted to 64-bit again. Thanks

@swearchnick, I've tried to reproduce "typewriter not working twice" under win64 and had no luck. May be it's because of pdf-xchange version bump from 6 to 7 (and the bug was reported for 6, maybe because of other reason. You could try yourself.

No reason to change something. Just saying.

@rvasilev No, it does not work perfectly "with win64". Annotate does not work, see comments below. Solution is to always force 32-bit as it is done now.

PDF-Xchange is perfectly working with win64, but when win64 is the only availible wine, /usr/bin/pdf-xchange does not start and asks win32 environment.

/usr/bin/pdf-xchange should respect WINEARCH and maybe WINEPREFIX from command line / env.

So I was having issues with paper sizes not showing up on a network printer. I installed these packages and now it works. Unfortunately, I installed them at the same time, so I don't know which one fixed the issue. lib32-libxcomposite lib32-nss-mdns lib32-libxslt I do suspect it was the last one. lib32-libxslt
