@Skycoder42 Seeing as pacaur is now unmaintained I would suggest you choose a different method. To help the maintainer could you uninstall this package built with pacaur and construct it manually by downloading the pkgbuild into a folder on desktop or home folder and manually build it to see if you get the same error?

Skycoder42 commented on 2018-01-14 12:20

The current version (rev 5) has an invalid path in the system desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Foxit Reader
Exec=foxitreader %F
Exec=/tmp/pkg-build/foxitreader/src/foxitreader-installer/ %F

The second Exec statement causes the problem. /tmp/pkg-build is the folder where the package was packaged by in my case pacaur. Please fix that part of the desktop file. For rev. 4, the second line was simply not there, I guess it's simply a missed leftover from the installer script.

It took me a lot of time to fix this package.

Finally dropped the qt-installer-framework dependency (broken?) and replaced with a qt-installer custom script

There're actually two issues:

  1. if you build this package using your user (no chroot) then you'll have a duplicate desktop file in your ~/.local/share/applications folder
  2. print doesn't work for me, crashing application. This is somehow related to the QT version

Hi, I am experiencing systematic "segmentation fault/core dumped" crashes whenever I try printing with Foxitreader. Has anyone else had the same issue ?

I got the same problem.

[0] Warning: QFile::at: Cannot set file position 26977808 Cannot register in-binary resource.

qt-installer-framework is installed. Qt version is qt5-base 5.10.0-2. Manual build with makepkg -sf does not work either.

this problem seems to be related to the qt version.. as qt-installer-framework compiled against v5.9.3 will not report errors.. as arch qt5 version is now 5.10.0..

@Muflone I've exactly the same error as nplatis with makepkg -sf. I don't have any idea of where this comes from. Can you help me?

Muflone commented on 2017-12-16 18:25

@nplatis I don't know, never seen that message before. try to build the package manually using makepkg -sf (or better with extra-x86_64-build)
