@tornado99 This replaces the Monospace font everywhere in the system. To limit this to Foxit-Reader, add this to the fontconfig::

Even though I applied Static_rocket's fix, it's still not working. It cannot find a missing dependency but I really don't know why this happens: ==> Making package: gstreamer0.10-base 0.10.36-13 (Thu 03 Dec 2020 13:57:38 CET) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Installing missing dependencies... error: target not found: gstreamer0.10>=0.10.36 ==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies. ==> Missing dependencies: -> gstreamer0.10>=0.10.36 ==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

On my desktop it starts with This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland". suggesting it's shipping its own version of Qt without Wayland support. Could it be patched to use the system version of Qt?

I found a solution to the ugly font issue. Just put the following in your fonts.config. Shouldn't affect the rest of your system unless you're using Droid Sans anywhere. In KDE the system settings monospace setting overrides this for most other apps. Still not great though as the size is too small. <match target="pattern"> <test qual="any" name="family"> <string>monospace</string> </test> <edit mode="assign" name="family" binding="same"> <string>Droid Sans</string> </edit> </match> <match target="font"> <test name="family"> <string>Droid Sans</string> </test> <edit mode="assign" name="embolden"> <bool>true</bool> </edit> </match>

@dschense 's solution worked for me too! Thanks! If yay complains unable to find gstreamer0.10-base, use the "-a" option:

yay -G -a gstreamer0.10-base

tried method mentioned by @dschense but did not work

gave and error

makepkg -si ==> Making package: foxitreader (Tue 31 Mar 2020 10:59:01 PKT) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Installing missing dependencies... [sudo] password for zulfiqar: error: target not found: gstreamer0.10-base warning: 'gstreamer0.10-base' is a file, did you mean -U/--upgrade instead of -S/--sync? ==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies. ==> Missing dependencies: -> gstreamer0.10-base ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

to get it running you have to download the gstreamer0.10-base package and edit the PKGBUILD file

yay -G gstreamer0.10-base 

edit the PKGBUILD file and add

find . -exec sed -i -e 's/\\#include/#include/g' {} \;

right before the make command in the build function

after this do

makepkg -si

and after build and install completed, run the yay -S foxitreader again.
