Ok, so I followed this link and got the following results:

But when I try to test the DSC on this website it doesn’t work. Searching in about config section in Firefox shows Javascript as enabled. Is there something I am missing here ?? Please help

P.S.Also to let you know I downloaded files from eMudhra Repository for General Downloads ( for Linux but didn’t install them as they supported .deb and .rpm format.

Ok. uninstalled the previous version from opt/eMudra/emBridge. Updated embridge-bin from AUR and ran the app from usr/bin/embridge which recreated the necessary files in opt/eMudra/emBridge. Was forced to do sudo sh from /opt/eMudhra/emBridge/App/Resources/Source ( otherwise throwing errors) and then emBridge restarted. Opening the emb.html file with Firefox shows that emBridge is running and active and updated.Now systemctl start emBridge.service shows systemd emBridge.service loaded and active [ first is sudo sh Source folder) which creates the emBridge.service file. Then sudo sytemctl enable emBridge.service and finally sudo systemctl start emBridge.service ]. But the emBridge icon present in /opt/eMudhra/emBridge/App is not there in the Desktop entry ( showing some errors regarding KDE ← If KDE developers could also look into this - it would be of much help.).. Now only need to test it out with a DSC. I think dotnet.core and oracle-java in repositories should also be added as dependencies for the embridge-bin build. Many many thanks.

I have pushed a new version which has a patch to possibly fix the issue.

Please rebuild and try.

All you need to do is run /usr/bin/embridge.

Do not chmod 755 *.sh files as they do strange stuff (possibly for Ubuntu)

cannot start /ur/bin/embridge.. Had to enter directory /opt/eMudra/embridge/App/Resources/Source and make all sh files executable with chmod755 command. executing sh restarts the service and creates the emBridge.service file( which again had to be made executable with chmod 755 command.After that when I click emb.html file it shows status as installed and active but unable to fetch updates. But systemctl command shows emBridge.service as loaded but failed. Please guide.

@tshering Please simply run /usr/bin/embridge as normal user.

No need to run with su.

@tshering There is no embridge.service. Simply start /usr/bin/embridge OR create your own service file as necessary.

If you think any dependency is missing then let me know.

tshering commented on 2022-06-07 15:21 (UTC)

systemctl unable to find embridge.service and hence embridge not starting. Also please guide on extra dependencies if required other than the ones mentioned beforehand.
