    Debug symbols for binary packages

    Does FreeBSD support download of debugging symbols for binary packages installed via pkg? I can't find any information about that nor can I find any packages with those symbols. I'm heavy ports user but recently I wanted to debug something quickly and wanted to avoid building in myself from ports.

    Solved print/pdfarranger

    I was just wondering why there is no print/pdfarranger port for FreeBSD (since even OpenBSD has one): What I found on their GitHub issue tracker: Installation instructions for FreeBSD #381 BTW Since that one is a GTK3 GUI application, does anyone know of an equivalent that's using QT5 instead?
