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If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.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

@remussatala, the way we have source available to us without the risk of the application crashing, version 0.76.1 is not available yet. We shall have to stay with 0.75 until I figure it out.

Continue the version 0.75...

Is not update. Is still 0.75.

Hudd commented on 2015-10-28 16:35

Also, is libpng12 necessary? xnview seems to work fine without it.

Hudd commented on 2015-10-28 16:35

You should change pkgver to 0.76, because that is (currently) the latest version.

Gryffyn commented on 2015-10-28 14:01

Try that.

Thank you @allencch! I'm still trying to clean this package up from the last maintainer, as many things have changed.

@Gryffyn, there are some changes required for the PKGBUILD,
Line 38, install -m755 "${bname}" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/${bname}"
And add one more line
ln -s /usr/bin/XnView "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/xnviewmp"
Because the xnviewmp.desktop file will call the "xnviewmp" instead of "XnView".
Besides that, I found the xnview.tgz does not contain the,,, and plugins.
So, I created another PKGBUILD based on forum
The PKGBUILD is available here

==> Starting package()...
install: cannot create regular file ‘/usr/bin/XnView’: Permission denied
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Fix: change line to:
install -m755 "${bname}" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/${bname}"

Updated to replacement binary, added libxslt as requested by vinibali.
