@alkaid @guiodic

same problem

Additionally: How do I update the OCR language models? I can't OCR any document. In the OCR dialog pdf-xchange tells me that no language package is installed. If I click the add languages button, then I see a list of language models. Every model is said to be installed, but outdated. If I click the update button, then all models get downloaded. When the download finishes pdf-xchange tells me it can't install the packages due to missing write/file permissions (access denied).

Do I need to do it manually? How? I have tesseract-data-eng installed.

Hi, first I want to thank you for maintaining this great package. I have been facing freeze issues (has to force quit) mostly when closing this application (it happened but rarely in other cases too). As a result, it would lose the track of all opened files and history, etc. Has anyone else reported this problem and is there a workaround?

@Hemanti Thank you, your "fix" should be possible to implement in the package. I will look into it and update the package.

Hi, I just wanted to chime in to say thank you for this great package. It makes installing my favorite PDF viewer so easy!

To return something, I want to let everyone know how to enable the title bar buttons in full screen.

  1. WINEPREFIX="/home/USERNAME/.local/share/pdf-xchange/PDF Editor/wine" /usr/bin/wine "winecfg.exe"
  2. Tab "Graphics" --> Uncheck "Allow window manager to decorate the windows"

Perhaps this could even be built into the package? Works very well for me. :)

Hi, I'm using the Hungarian language with accented characters. I'm facing 2 issues, probably related to the same origin. The first issue that one of the accented characters (ű) cannot be typed inside pdf-xchange editor. The second issue that files with accented character included in their name are not visible by the browser when I want to open them. I suppose it has to do something with the character set and maybe with the character encoding that is probably related to wine configuration. Anyway, could somebody give me some direction in what way should I digging? Thanks.

Edit: My locale was not configured correctly. Once I added the Hungarian locale to '/etc/locale.gen' and regenerated with 'locale-gen' everything started to work. Thanks.

Yes, this is a good practice to do this, especially when source file doesn't contain any version number. Maybe now @bkb will stop "trolling".

@micwoj92 Thank you for your constructive comment. PKGBUILD updated with your suggestion. Change is not for aur helpers, instead I think it is a general improvement of the PKGBUILD.

To solve this problem you could use something like

@bkb Can you please stop spamming (or are you trolling?). Your aur helper will never be supported. PKGBUILD shall never clear old files. It's your responsibility to do a clean build. This is my final warning to you regarding aur helper support.
