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If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.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

@djmattyg007: I hadn't even noticed the PKGBUILD was using HTTP URLs, thanks for the heads-up! That's probably because upstream is using HTTP URLs everywhere... Anyway, I've updated the URLs.

Please update the upstream URL and the source download URL to use HTTPS.

@zw963: I wish I could do something about that, but this is beyond my control! The source tarball is indeed pretty big, but this is actually explained by the fact that it contains most of the libraries XnView MP depends on: the libs directory represents about 75% of the total size (uncompressed). I don't think this is something that upstream would easily accept to change, because the only supported way to run XnView MP is using those packaged libs. Note that I maintain another package (xnviewmp-system-libs) that allows you to get rid of those libs and use the system ones instead, but it doesn't change the fact that you need to download the full source tarball.

XnViewMP-linux-x64_0.98.3-rel1.tgz, this source file is too too big to download for a just a picture viewer, just because it include some big demo video/image into this source code packaged file, right?

could you please optimize for a more small size?

thank you!

Tried to install the package with yay -S xnviewm but it failed:

@PhotonX: by a complete coincidence, 0.98.2 got released today, which explains why the checksum failed on the archive :) I've now updated the PKGBUILD.

PhotonX commented on 2021-02-22 11:02

For me it fails for the release file:

XnViewMP-linux-x64_0.98.1-rel1.tgz ... FAILED

xnviewmp.desktop ... Passed

@rratul: I unflagged the package because the checksum failure you get is on xnviewmp.desktop, which doesn't make sense as it's part of the package and I didn't change it. Try to delete the AUR repo and start again.

@ax34 I think it's already been flagged by someone else. I'm new to using arch/aur. Thank you.
