To avoid crashs when opening PDF's, and hangout on exit install mendeleydesktop-bundled which packages Qt provided by the upstream.

In the latest version, I am not able to open documents within mendeley. A pop up says "Unable to open PDF - it may be". I am nonetheless able to open documents externally.

Edit: Nevermind. The locale of my system was not setup correctly. Works fine now.

@akstrfn Anyone news about the @David01's error? I have the same.

akstrfn commented on 2019-10-17 09:37

I am not going to maintain this package anymore since I am switching to Zotero.

@David01 I'm busy this week so I'll try to fix the problem during the weekend.

@akstrfn I have added export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mendeleydesktop/lib/qt to ~/.bashrc and sourced it. No successful results:

I don't know if I upgraded the system or did something, but suddenly I couldn't launch Mendeley Desktop. Some issues with the QT library.

In order to use Mendeley again, I have to manually set the runtime QT5 library path to the one included in this bundle, i.e.,

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mendeleydesktop/lib/qt

But I don't recall I had to do manually set the path before.

After the latest update, mendeleydektop doesn't work:

Running mendeleydesktop on the terminal yields:

It doesn't quit properly. When the GUI closes, the process keeps running and its CPU usage flies to 100%. There is a 1.19.5 version released by the upstream and they say some bugs are fixed. Any update plan?

Thanks. Fixed.
