Seems the plugin has been removed?

alkaid commented on 2016-10-17 05:30

why the fcitx plugin(libfcitxplatforminputcontextplugin.so) is absent in the
/opt/mendeleydesktop/lib/mendeleydesktop/plugins/platforminputcontexts/
while in mendeleydesktop 1.16-3, this plugin located at
/opt/mendeleydesktop/lib/mendeleydesktop/plugins/platforminputcontexts/libfcitxplatforminputcontextplugin.so
I guess that causes my input method broken.

@brittyazel
for me behaviour is exactly the same. The difference between my log an yours is:

QXcbIntegration: Cannot create platform OpenGL context, neither GLX nor EGL are enabled

Maybe this is your cuplprit? Did you enabled glx/egl in kwin?

Per my below comment, mendeleydesktop-dev in the AUR seems to work ok. One difference that I notice is that the -dev package only depends on qt5-webengine, with the rest of the dependencies being implicit. Further, the maintainer of that package said "The problem seems to be that mendeley is compiled against qt5webengine 5.5 and while archlinux is at 5.7." Hope this helps

Mendeley is crashing every time I try to open it:

Hi!
I can't exit properly from mendeley. After I quit application process is still alive. Errors from console:

@xgdgsc The version was not bumped to pkgrel=3 when you changed the md5sum values, thus anyone who had tried updating with the old md5sum values with pacaur has an old version in their cache with the wrong md5sums.

If you are getting errors that state that the validity check failed with pacaur, delete the mendeleydesktop entry out of .cache/pacaur and try again.

Hey guys, I'm using the numix-circle icon theme, and for some reason once mendeley is running it no longer uses the nice themed icon, but rather falls back to the default icon. Any thoughts?

sumofsquares commented on 2016-06-29 20:29

@slartibarfast, I also had problems with the md5 sum. What I did was download the latest file, compute the md5sum and edit the PKGBUILD with the correct md5sum.
