The included docfetcher script doesn't work anymore as the references script in the package has gone

KDE should have nothing to do with variables in a shell script. I'm setting the value of $_gtkver to be 'gtk3' by default. It's only there so people have the choice of using GTK2 or 3. It's strange that you get no shortcut.

I'll have a closer look at the script tonight.

I had to do the following fixes:

sudo chmod 655 /usr/share/docfetcher/DocFetcher-GTK*
sudo ln -s /usr/share/docfetcher/ /usr/share/docfetcher/
sudo sed -i s,"Icon=docfetcher","Icon=/usr/share/docfetcher/img/docfetcher128.png", /usr/share/applications/docfetcher.desktop
sudo sed -i s,"Name=Docfetcher","Name=DocFetcher", /usr/share/applications/docfetcher.desktop

The first one is already in, the second one can easily be fixed there.
The third (no icon) and fourth (typing error) can easily be fixed in the desktop file.

I use kde, so $_gtkver gives nothing (at least on my system).

So there is no link made.

What do y'all think of this?

I am not currently using this software, so I can't advise.

However, I'd say it's better to stick to one and only one. Choose gtk2 or gtk3, whatever you think it's more convenient. Since Arch supports gnome, which uses gtk3, I guess it would be a good default choice to make it more consistent with the rest of the system.

And, if changing it to gtk2 is just a matter of changing one flag (like --use-gtk2 instead of --use-gtk3), then you could leave a comment so users can change it at their own discretion.

All right?

OK. Which of the two should we be using, or should we make both available?
I also notice that both DocFetcher.GTK2 and DocFetcher.GTK3 are not chmod +x by default.
Should we just use GTK3 by default? I suggest a symlink called to DocFetcher.GTK3 then? That's somewhat simpler and allows for an easy change to GTK2 for the user.
We should also make GTK3 a dependency, shouldn't we?

Had to make the following change for docfetcher to start:
