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If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.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

FYI: I am aware that 0.91 is out (thanks to porzione for flagging the package out-of-date!), but I'm waiting for some dependency mess to be resolved, see:

Just FYI, won't have anything to do with the PKGBUILD: In order to get videos running I had to uninstall gstreamer-vaapi.

@indianahorst: I don't think the SSL errors have anything to do with the GPS map not working. I have just tried with xnviewmp-system-libs (my other package that uses the system Qt libs instead of the ones shipped with XnView), and I don't get those SSL errors, but the "No such signal GPSMapWidget::reloadMap()" error is still there and nothing shows up. Not sure what to do about this, you may want to report it on the forum.

XnView works fine, except the GPS Tab, which should show the coordinates of images.

When I start XnView from command line, I get this:


MyView::onLoaded ok
resetViewport (2cbbeb0) ==> 798 246 (369 246) 0 0

It seems to have to to with different SSL versions, but I have OpenSSL 1.1 as well as OpenSSL 1.0 installed.

How can I force XnView to use the old OpenSSL 1.0?

@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.

note there is now an AppImage provided as well for XnViewMP

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 :-)
