Zathura not displaying any documents

Zathura cannot display any documents. When I try to run "zathura file.pdf", I get the following:

  error: could not open plugin directory: /usr/lib/zathura
  error: Unknown file type: 'application/pdf'

How can I fix this?

Re: Zathura not displaying any documents

Do you have zathura-pdf-mupdf or zathura-pdf-poppler installed?

Zathura is a document viewer that needs a plugin for each document type to be able to display them.

Re: Zathura not displaying any documents

That's a different problem for which you should open a new thread in the AUR forum section. Also post the complete thing. Including your running commands. And before you want any help with a broken PKGBUILD check if there is some solution in the AUR comments and also check if the thing build without whatever AUR helper you using (aka just makepkg).
