Masterpdf editor

kan iemand mij uitleggen hoe ik dit programma kan installeren vanaf source code
(staat wel in aur maar is niet de recenste versie)
via website
https://code-industry.net/free-pdf-editor/

hoe installeer ik dit vanuit downloads map -- graag stap voor stap uitleg aub
alvast bedankt voor de hulp

Sorry I write in English. Open this link and read the first comment. Use new PKGBUILD for the latest version.
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/masterpdfeditor-qt5/

The new PKGBUILD here:
https://gist.githubusercontent.com/0devnull0/7f60a440a59688a4dbdcfac2683aa279/raw/6477a4e19b465d79894b9ad3a0db8762bda2559e/PKGBUILD

Instructions from the new PKGBUILD:

First 'download snapshot' from AUR, replace the content of PKGBUILD with this one ....
...and edit the file masterpdfeditor-qt5.desktop to point to the new binary (replace 3 with 4).

I've just installed version 4.0.20 with it.

sorry for this but i have a previous version installed - so how do i proceed

can you please explain step by step for a newbie

  1. Open terminal. Run commands below one by one (number 6 is one command):
  2. cd ~
  3. curl -O https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/snapshot/masterpdfeditor-qt5.tar.gz
  4. tar xaf masterpdfeditor-qt5.tar.gz
  5. cd masterpdfeditor-qt5
  6. curl -O https://gist.githubusercontent.com/0devnull0/7f60a440a59688a4dbdcfac2683aa279/raw/6477a4e19b465d79894b9ad3a0db8762bda2559e/PKGBUILD
  7. sed 's/3/4/' masterpdfeditor-qt5.desktop > masterpdfeditor-qt5.desktop.new
  8. mv masterpdfeditor-qt5.desktop.new masterpdfeditor-qt5.desktop
  9. makepkg -sci
  10. When asked, enter your password, then answer "y" to confirm installation
  11. cd ..
  12. rm -R masterpdfeditor-qt5*
    Done.

This is quite an old thread. Please create a new thread and describe what you are trying to do and what the problem is.

I was trying to install masterpdf editor. It's ok now, I installed okular instead.
