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.

I tried it and it's working, @freaz , thx!!

There are comments on the gst-plugins-base aur page with instructions from Static_Rocket to hack the PKGBUILD file to fix the current problem. It works if you can figure it out.

Same problem as phiL0co and Archanfel80HUN.

The gstreamer0.10-base dependency fails during the build of gst-plugins-base-0.10.36.

phiL0co commented on 2020-03-04 15:01

I'm having the same compile problem with gstreamer. Any way this can be circumvented?

Archanfel80HUN commented on 2020-02-21 10:02

The dependency gstreamer0.10-base no longer build. Its failed to compile, therefore foxitreader not installed.

the defect is not possible anymore as the EULA was included into the package itself
