Hi @protz

I wanted to package the latest version.

  1. Cloned the entire repo
  2. cd'ed into the folder and ran git submodule init & git submodule update
  3. cd'ed into content/pdfjs and ran make, resulting in the error make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
  4. cd'ed into the root folder and ran ./ build, resulting in the error Please run make from content/pdfjs ftp: Name or service not known Not connected.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help!


Yes, that worked, thanks!

I had to install nodejs (Arch Linux) and then I was able to run node make bundle.

Then I used ./ which compiled the latest version.

Maybe worth updating the the build instructions in the



Sure, happy to help out with fairly simple tasks! :)


Success with your PhD submission.
