And yet, there's not.

According to the authors, there's a new version available in the download.

Hello all,

if you do not want to mess around with this AUR package or PKGBUILD files, you can also downgrade qt5-base and qt5-svg to 5.13.2-1. With this Qt version, Master PDF Editor from the AUR package works.

@yolf, it isn't necessary duplicate the system libraries. And it isn't necessary an AUR package to do that. Simply uncompress the download file in any folder.
As soon as the developers of masterpdfeditor fix the error it will be possible to install it as before.

Why can't it be installed in the system?

Libraries are located in "/opt/master-pdf-editor-5/lib/" and don't conflict with system libraries.

The version master-pdf-editor-5.4.38-qt5-all installs all libraries, including the Qt libraries, which are already installed. That's why it can't be installed in the system.
You can download it in your "home" directory ( and unzip it (without installing it in the system directories) to use it while the error is not fixed in the other one.

PKGBUILD for updating to new version (for Qt 5.9.8 or later)

Facing same issue with my commercial version of MasterPDFeditor (masterpdfeditor 5.4.38-1). It is not throwing an error after succesful installation but it is not starting at all. If I got it right best is to wait until Code Industry launches a new version that will also be available from the AUR - is that right?

Thanks and regards kemuzor

Hi, I was getting the error

masterpdfeditor5: symbol lookup error: masterpdfeditor5: undefined symbol: _ZN10QMutexPool17globalInstanceGetEPKv

I have emailed the developer and I got a respond which it worked and solved my problem.

Maybe the aur package is out of date even if its the same version?


Please reinstall Master PDF Editor using this deb package:

Sincerely, Code Industry Ltd

If it works, and you can't provide a better alternative, then it IS a solution.
