I have created a new package: xnviewmp-system-libs. This is exactly the same build, except that the bundled Qt/icu libs are removed. Please try it if you want to use XnView without the bundled libs, and discuss any issue related to this configuration here: Do keep in mind that this is an experimental package though, and things may break when I try to fix other things...

If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.

Upstream does not version the released archives and does not announce new releases either, so the checksum is bound to become wrong every time there is a new release, and there's nothing I can do about that.

@not_anonymous: thanks for the heads-up, but I don't think these warnings are very relevant and/or can be easily fixed.

xnviewmp E: Insecure RPATH '/home/pierre/Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/lib' in file ('opt/xnviewmp/XnView')

This is clearly not good, but this is how the application is compiled by the maintainer (remember, that's a binary package). I could hack things together using chrpath, but I don't think it's worth the hassle (and I'd rather avoid modifying prebuilt binaries).

xnviewmp E: Symlink (opt/xnviewmp/lib/ points to non-existing

I don't understand that one, definitely exists (in the same directory).

xnviewmp E: Dependency gtk3 detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['opt/xnviewmp/lib/platformthemes/'])

The corresponding library in qt5-base also depends on, and qt5-base itself has an optdep on gtk3. Since this package already depends on qt5-base (indirectly), I don't think it's worth propagating the optdep.

0.88-1 has fixed the font issue.

Corax commented on 2017-11-04 12:09

0.88 is upon us :D This should solve the font issues, apparently fuan_k has already confirmed that :-) Don't forget to remove /opt/xnviewmp/lib/ if you used the hack I mentioned below.

Corax commented on 2017-10-08 17:03

@fuan_k: great news, and well done reporting these bugs! Looks like 0.88 is going to be a great release :-)

fuan_k commented on 2017-10-02 03:25

@Corax: he's doing this in private. Wait and see.

edit: here is the bug tracker ticker:

I've also managed to get him to fix the broken config path I mentioned before (below). The problem was using the "Program (XnView)" setting during initial set up, instead of "User (System)". It was a bug anyway, now fixed too.

Corax commented on 2017-10-01 17:54

@fuan_k: awesome! Did he comment about that on the forum? Can't see anything in General Support.

fuan_k commented on 2017-09-29 23:01

Good news, the xnviewmp author has looked into it and has it fixed in an upcoming version! No more fontconfig errors (just tried it myself). :D

Corax commented on 2017-09-27 18:42

@fuan_k: not much I can do about the font glitch I'm afraid, there's probably something wrong about how XnView uses fontconfig :/ Regarding the fontconfig breakage, I'll give it some more time before I hack the PKGBUILD. An Archer has reported the issue on the forum, we'll see how it goes:
