@cbertelli, that's wonderful, thanks a bunch for pointing that out! I can confirm that it works after adding the patch. @chelqo, here's the modified PKGBUILD:

I found a solution here:
Carlos Maddela submitted this patch
that was effective. Maybe chelqo could evaluate it and possibly include it.

Actually, it seems to be a theme-related problem (running xfce at least). E.g., with the Arc theme, I still get the segfault at startup, but with Vertex-Maia it works all right. So if others run into this problem, try changing your theme, that might help.

@chelqo Yes, system is fully updated. Thanks for the reply, I just reinstalled the package, and it works again. Maybe some intermittent problem with one of the deps.

I've tried it in several ways, but I do not get the error you mention
Pkgbuild works well on my computers.
Do you have the operating system updated?

This application just segfaults for me (using pdftk from the pdftk-bin package):

PDF Chain - A graphical user interface for the PDF Toolkit

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Any ideas what's going wrong there? Has anyone seen and been able fixed this?

license array ready!

Error with makepkg - "License must be an array."

The License line in the PKGBUILD needs to be changed. Please see the diff below:

< license="GPL"
> license=('GPL')

Estimated archers:
I hope this new version compiles cleanly for all.
