@starlord thanks for updating it, I was getting 404 errors for that URL earlier but now it works, weird. May have been a problem on my machine

As you can see here, the package is updated.

Great package, love the customization options.

The PKGBUILD should be updated to this:

I think the package needs libsynctex as dependency, cause otherwise I do get the following error message:

evince: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@arbu thx

gspell should be in depends not in makedepends. Without it evince won't run.

@ypoluektovich: Do you have base-devel installed? Which selection of feature did you make? And can you paste the whole log please?

ypoluektovich commented on 2018-01-21 16:19

I'm getting an error while building: Is something missing from makedepends?

@kazuo: Sorry, it literally took me years to notice your comment and take it into account. I’ve updated with your suggestion, excepted that:

– I’ve let PDF enabled as default, like it is now.
– I’ve made tiff, previewer and thumbnailer options too, first one was let alone before because not requiring any dep but that’s no reason (e.g. comics), and regarding the two others I’ve realised they are not useful outside of a gnome environment.
– I’ve added the multimedia option for multimedia support in PDF, which was added upstream in 3.17 but that was ignored by evince in repo until 3.20 and here until now. I definitively admit having missed it in both changelogs. The feature is definitively in POC form, but might still be of interest for some.

I don't like the idea of having an interactive prompt. What about using variables to control the build options?

Like done in this patch

I did not change the defaults, but I like to ask that at least PDF is included by default, as this can surprise a lot of people (me included) getting a evince that do not support any filetype.
