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If makepkg fails because the checksum is incorrect, please flag the package out-of-date and I will update the PKGBUILD.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

@Corax, xnviewmp is not able to use the system theme on KDE Plasma with the included qt5 libraries: To fix this the application has to use the system's global qt5 libraries instead of it's own, which can be achieved by removing the qt.conf file and prepending "/usr/lib:" to LD_LIBRARY_PATH and QT_PLUGIN_PATH in the startup script.
I've uploaded a patch for the PKGBUILD @ and the replacement file @ .
It would be great if you could include the changes in the package :)

@martinpoljak Great, adopted :) I've updated the PKGBUILD.

@Corax, if you would like to do, I do it; I'm maintaining it time to time as it's been orphaned. I've disowned it, so claim it!

@martinpoljak If you don't have time to maintain this package, I'd be happy to adopt it.

The current version of the downloaded archives is 0.83 (change pkgver accordingly), here are the md5sums :

@lmat The failed checksums are caused by the upstream dev not using versioned packages. You can use updpkgsums to fix this locally until the package is updated.

I just tried it out, and it fails to install with "==> Validating source_i686 files with md5sums...
XnViewMP-linux.tgz ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!"

I tried the post that grayich gave in PKGBUILD, but that didn't fix the issue. I'm not exactly waiting on this software, and I have many more to try for photo printing solution. But I thought I would drop a note here for what it's worth!

I'm wondering, why does the package depends on qt5-* at all? XnViewMP is shipped with all the Qt5 libraries it needs, if you use the startup script you don't need Qt5 packages to be installed. Or is that done to pull the dependencies of Qt5 itself?

With the current version you need to

1) Symlink the tar to so that makepkg succeeds
2) The "Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/xnviewmp" (Permission denied)" happens because the file is a tar. Just extract it and move it back.
