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If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.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

According to the WhatsNew.txt file in the downloaded tarball, this version is 0.75 and a lot has changed, despite the version number on the website remaining at 0.72. This version is built with QT 5.4.2 and won't run here. I've tried installing qt5-multimedia qt5-webkit qt5-svg qt5-x11extras, but I'm still getting "This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"." errors.

@mytbk This is the same version number, there is no new release as far as I'm aware.

@cdown: XnViewMP is a closed source software, it is distributed in binary tarballs without version number, so when they update the software they just update the tarballs.

@scarecrow: Fixed, let me know if you still see problems. It was changed for both the x86 and x86_64 versions, no idea why they changed it upstream.

The MD5sum of the 64-bit package (at least) has changed... please update PKGBUILD.

- Here's some (self-explanatory) corrections - I used namcap (Yes namcap can be wrong or over-report.) and pactree ... and these are the *valid* things that could be corrected - (I also bumped the pkgrel to make things easier.)

md5sum in case of x64 should be change, more specifically, corresponding lines in PKGBUILD should be:

if [ "$CARCH" = 'x86_64' ]; then

Please ignore previous about v0.71, I am kind of having on eof those days where my mind is "trying" to go like 5 different directions at once, NOT fun.

CyberWolf2k14 commented on 2014-12-06 21:15

I have NEVER tinkered with anything to do withe packages..EVER. I leave that up to those who definitely have FAR more experience than I do.
I just posted here to let someone know that there was definitely an MD5sum problem with this package. I use the package because I really like it, so woul like it updated. On that, I hope maintainer know it is now up to v0.71, right?

@ CyberWolf2k14,

you know that you can always modify your local copy of PKGBUILD, right?
