Thank you @galago. You remind me the pain that I suffered when I was an undergraduate... BTW, for some reason I cannot compile evince with doc enabled. Disabling the doc in the PKGBUILD works for me.

Updated to evince 3.36, using poppler-0.87. You can try it @zhou13. I also prefer standalone packages, but poppler affects not only evince, but also okular, texstudio, inkscape... I don't wanna make a standalone version of each package, maintainance is painful. What's worse, it spent me more time working around the Great Firewall than modifying the codes.

Hi @galago, it seems that this package no longer compiles. I got 1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file qt5/demos/viewer.cpp.rej

I still prefer the standalone package, as it does not depend on a patched poppler package, which does not sync with the archlinux's package in time, causing problems for packages like inkscape. Thank you for the work!

Recently, I have patched the latest poppler-0.76, which grants sub-pixel smoothing ability to poppler-based PDF viewers, such as Evince, Okular and TeXstudio, without contaminating their source code. Just install the three AUR packages by running "yay -Sd poppler-lcd poppler-glib-lcd poppler-qt5-lcd". The original Okular, Evince will employ my subpixel-enabled "Cairo" engine. See "https://github.com/jonathanffon/poppler-lcd-patch" for more details.

Url protocol of poppler was changed to HTTPS.

Please change the source url of poppler to the TLS encrypted https variant instead of plain http for increased security, I tested it and it worked perfectly! Thanks in advance! :)

This version of evince enables subpixel rendering of PDF documents for better display on LCD screen. The standalone package has integrated a patched version of poppler-0.43 libraries, so packages which depend on higher version of poppler/poppler-glib package will NOT be affected. The package cairo-infinality (or cairo-infinality-ultimate) should also be installed to improve font rendering with CAIRO_LCD_FILTER_DEFAULT.
