Hello, could anyone help me to get docfetcher to start? I get this error:

(DocFetcher:14459): Gtk-WARNING **: 11:39:02.413: Negative content width -1 (allocation 1, extents 1x1) while allocating gadget (node scrolledwindow, owner GtkScrolledWindow) SWT WebKitGDBus: error creating DBus server Error binding to address (GUnixSocketAddress): No such file or directory SWT WebKit: error initializing DBus server, dBusServer == 0

@macxcool OK thanks that sorted it. Odd it had showed as executable, but after running it, yes it now executes.

macxcool commented on 2023-01-20 21:35 (UTC)

That's because the file isn't set to executable. Try:

sudo chmod +x /usr/share/docfetcher/docfetcher-daemon-linux

You may have to create a systemd unit file to have it run at boot, though. I don't know how this works, but it looks like it needs to run as root, not as a user.

Anyone got the daemon running. I've tried running /usr/share/docfetcher/docfetcher-daemon-linux with, and without sudo, but without it says permission denied, and with sudo it says command not found.

The file is there, and it is flagged as executable. Otherwise, the app installed fine and runs fine. I just wanted to add the daemon to my start up apps.

One question and one comment: comment: the docfetcher icon was not installed properly so I had to add the following to the PKGBUILD

  for icon in 16 24 32 48 64 128; do
    install -Dm644 "img/docfetcher${icon}.png" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons/hicolor/${icon}x${icon}/apps/${pkgname}.png"

question: is anyone having issues with the gtk3 version? some of the buttons like the run button in the index creation wizard are not showing up, I had to build using gtk2

@macxcool: Thanks, works nicely.

Just set the depends to require Java>=8 with no upper bound.

Cool, then let's adjust the dependency:

-depends=('java-runtime>=8' 'java-runtime<=10')

macxcool commented on 2020-04-30 16:11 (UTC)

Worked fine with 11 and 13 in my tests. Is that good enough?

macxcool commented on 2020-04-30 15:20 (UTC)

Just use archlinux-java to change your java environment to 11 or 13 and test docfetcher. There's probably no reason why it wouldn't work. If we get a couple of people reporting good tests, then I'll switch it. Maybe I'll just set it to >=8.
