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If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.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

It requires xorg-fonts-100dpi
And need to add FontPath to xorg.conf

Here's the fix: we need to extract there libs to /usr/share/xnviewmp/lib

Also, the xnviewmp.desktop needs to be fixed. Here's a working version:

I disowned this package. I still don't have arch installed and hopefully someone will adopt it.

[ "$CARCH" = "i686" ] && depends=('glib2' 'libpng' 'expat') &&

build() {
cd ${srcdir}

cd XnViewMP-${pkgver}

install -d ${startdir}/pkg/usr/share/xnviewmp
cp -R * ${startdir}/pkg/usr/share/xnviewmp

install -Dm 644 XnView.desktop ${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/xnviewmp.desktop || return 1

install -d ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/
cd ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/
ln -s ../share/xnviewmp/ xnviewmp || return 1


Please use this PKGBUILD, I have tested in my machine, and I can't test x86-64

Besides, symbolic link solution for xnviewmp maybe not good, hope you have a better solution

I don't have my Archlinux machine these days, so if anyone is willing to post a valid PKGBUILD using the new 32 and 64bit installers, I'd gladly submit it.
