@Rategh, same Problem here.

In addition my Cinnamon Session is crashing when starting mendeleydesktop (MD) since the last update. Only after closing MD, Cinnamon becomes responsive again and is restarting. It crashes each time I open MD. Downgrading Cinnamon to 3.6.0.1 helped for now.

Hi
I'm unable to start mendeleydesktop. The same problem with the core dump and Qt warnings when i uncommente two line about qt in PKGBUILD mendeleydesktop start without crash but i cant login or sync because of internet connection error!
any idea?

I was also having trouble opening the PDFs externally, which is due to competing Qt libraries. I managed to open the file externally (with Okular), by opening mendeley with
LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" mendeleydesktop

In the menu launcher, I change it the command to:
sh -c 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" /home/angelv/.local/share/mendeleydesktop %f'

and all is good now.

It still works here, but since the last update, Cinnamon crashes every time I launch Mendeley Desktop. Anyone know what's going on?

Edit: issue not present anymore as of 2017-10-09.

Openssl 1.1.0 broke the package, had to rollback to 1.0.2
