I can't type any Arabic,Persian,... character in search box in both mupdf & mupdf-gl. So i can't search for any arabic word. I tested this in both Wayland & X11.

It seems the problem is because of removing their modified libs Although I have not tested.
This is what I was told:
"If you link with the system provided FreeGLUT, non-ASCII input does NOT work.Please use our FreeGLUT version."

Additional info:
* package version(s)
mupdf-gl: 1.17.0-3

* config and/or log files etc.

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

on startup. Strangely, mupdf (without -gl) is apparently not affected, although both are built with the same flags, IIUC...

Steps to reproduce: Run mupdf and observe stderr.
