With the current version you need to

1) Symlink the tar to so that makepkg succeeds
2) The "Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/xnviewmp" (Permission denied)" happens because the file is a tar. Just extract it and move it back.

I run manjaro 15.12 32bit and even after I got this AUR to work, editing two lines in PKGBUILD, diff:
28c28
< md5sums_i686=('947e7f3c8d1d63109d8d6a7fb70bfedb'
---
> md5sums_i686=('02ddd03073564baac32ff8f4c2a59667'

< zcat "${srcdir}/XnView-archx32.gz" > "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}/XnView"
---
> zcat "${srcdir}/XnViewMP-linux.tgz" > "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}/XnView"

I ended up with
----
Failed to execute command "/usr/bin/xnviewmp %F".
Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/xnviewmp" (Permission denied)
----
When I started the binary /opt/xnviewmp/XnView directly, I got:
----
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted (core dumped)
----
libxcb is installed and AFAIK all the dependencies of /opt/xcnviewmp/lib/platforms/libqxcb.so are satisfied (ldd /opt/xcnviewmp/lib/platforms/libqxcb.so).

The only way to get XnViewMP working was using the 0.76 binary from here: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=32303
AFAIK you can delete the installed package afterwards with sudo pacman -R xnviewmp
I made a launcher to the binary, that's it!

It's not my pkgbuild. I recently adopted this package, and I've been really busy. I'm going to orphan it, you can take it over.

ptrxyz commented on 2016-03-07 10:14

Your pkgbuild is buggy. According to the specs (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#noextract) the "noextract" array should not contain URLs but only filenames.

In addition I have no idea if XnView-archx??.gz is needed or not but if so, add it to the source array and fix the noextract array to only contain the filenames instead of the URLs.

Find an example here: http://ix.io/pvk

Please, fix the package, it has been crashing since like last year, seriously.
==> Starting package()...

The following block from PKGBUILD should be removed now:
---------
if [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ] ; then
zcat "${srcdir}/XnView-archx64.gz" > "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}/XnView"
else
zcat "${srcdir}/XnView-archx32.gz" > "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}/XnView"
fi
---------

gzip searches XnView-archx64.gz but exists only XnViewMP-linux-x64.tgz ;-)

Gooberslot commented on 2016-02-24 07:42

I don't think the XnView-archx64 file is needed anymore. I'm just running the base package and everything except videos seem to work fine, and I don't think videos have ever worked for me with this program.
