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If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.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

Any chance you could do something like this, so aur helpers don't give an error and make the user manually delete the "source" whenever there is a new version?:

recheck the md5sums and update the package

dotmagic commented on 2014-05-23 19:05

Agree with melTraX....

The md5sum for XnViewMP-linux.tgz 32 bit is: 57cf3b9387f1b8cf6f199d54477fe8d0

Please update package

It's highly unlikely that XnViewMP-linux.tgz and XnViewMP-linux-x64.tgz have the same checksum as stated in the PKGBUILD.

Strangely enough both checksums are different now (for me at least):

76c157c2644a6ac1ed75be92e2adeb62 xnviewmp.desktop
57cf3b9387f1b8cf6f199d54477fe8d0 XnViewMP-linux.tgz
059baf72c2557f7dd4eab8e7d6eeb417 XnViewMP-linux-x64.tgz

It's still version 0.68 though.

small mod to help this programme work correctly.
2nd line of /opt/ should read:
rather than
dirname="$(dirname "$(readlink -e "$0")")"

because when you run the xnviewmp command from /usr/bin $dirname=/usr .
This means that xnviewmp uses all the system libraries rather than the packaged ones.

solved!!! thanks

mytbk commented on 2014-05-16 13:51

Well, maybe there's something wrong upstream. I saw a newer release just now.

Error on the last update:

I found that xnviewmp uses gvfs for moving files to trash.
If package gvfs is not installed, xnviewmp doesn't remove files properly, it just moves them to '~/.local/share/Trash/' (without updating trash metadata).
Maybe add gvfs to dependencies?

In the .install file: it should be 'update-desktop-database -q' (or at least remove the leading slash in /usr).
