@RobinHood2015: This is a regression caused by the latest update of gn, which introduced a change in the handling of set_sources_assignment_filter. I'm still pondering on how to best fix this in-package. As a workararound, you can either try downgrading gn to the last version or you can comment out the part of the PKGBUILD where the version of the build repo requested by pdfium is being checked out (currently line 54). This will cause the package to use the newest version of the build toolchain which is compatible with the current version of gn.

Another option is to simply switch to pdfium's beta channel. To do that, you just have to switch the first checkout in the PKGBUILD to the beta or dev channel checkout in the comments.

Removing the cache didn't work, but reinstalling gn did it.

rm -rf .cache/paru/clone/libpdfium-nojs
paru -S gn --overwrite /usr/bin/gn
paru -S libpdfium-nojs

@paapereira, @keren_sky: I can't replicate your issues on my system. Your best option is to retry with clean build directories and sources (i.e. delete the cached stuff). Also, if you're using AUR flavors of dependencies or build dependencies, replace those with vanilla versions.

I'm getting:

==> Starting build()...
ERROR at //.gn:15:20: Assignment had no effect.
no_check_targets = [
You set the variable "no_check_targets" here and it was unused before it went
out of scope.

Hi, is anybody else seeing this error message?

==> Starting pkgver()... ==> Removing existing $pkgdir/ directory... ==> Starting build()... ninja: Entering directory `out/Release' ninja: fatal: chdir to 'out/Release' - No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

Minor nitpick

Could you update the version? its annoying when i yay -Syyu and its been telling me for weeks now that i have a newer version than AUR.

@selmf You're right. I just took a deeper look at the PKGBUILD file and found out that I was mistaken.

The package does in fact not build from the newest git commit but the latest stable branch, which occasionally receives backports and security fixes during its lifetime. Git master is only pulled to keep track of those changes.

As the package is building from latest git commit, I think it's should be made libpdfium-nojs-git, according to VCS package guidelines
