Mendeley 1.19.1 crashes while opening a paper, Looks like its a mendeley issue. Not AUR issue.

I meant nvidia-340xx-utils, but made a mistake :) Hmm not clear to me how nvidia path is picked up... I'll get into it some more when they push mendeley that uses qt5.11.

@akstrfn Don't know, but the nvidia packages installed are only the following, and nothing in env contains 'nvidia'

angelv@comer:~$ pacman -Q | grep -i nvidia => nvidia-340xx 340.107-7 nvidia-340xx-utils 340.107-2

angelv@comer:~$ env | grep -i nvidia =>

I am not entirely sure where does this come from, probably from opencl-nvidia-340xx. Do you have that nvidia path in env?

angelv commented on 2018-07-06 08:11

@akstrfn Yes, using nvidia-340xx (340.107-7) and my LD_LIBRARY_PATH is empty.

akstrfn commented on 2018-07-05 18:42

@angelv are you using nvidia-340xx? what the output of $echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

Probably that line should be export D_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib/:/opt/mendeleydesktop/lib/:/usr/lib/qt/ but if you have nothing is in your link path then it wouldn't work.

@akstrfn: it looks like it was a conflict when looking of the GL library, which I have one in /usr/lib and and another one in /usr/lib/nvidia/

mopdifying in PKGBUILD the relevent line to include the nvidia directory fixes the issue: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nvidia/:/usr/lib/:/opt/mendeleydesktop/lib/:/usr/lib/qt/

As others commented before me, I also have a crash when opening PDFs inside Mendeley, but I'm used to opening them externally, so for the moment this is a secondary issue.

This woks for me, try it if you can't wait.

Just git and makepkg -si.

akstrfn commented on 2018-07-04 19:22

what does cd /opt/mendeleydesktop/lib/mendeleydesktop/libexec/ && ldd mendeleydesktop.x86_64 | grep -i gl output? Probably nothing meaningfull but I am curious to compare with what I have.

Also did you google for failed to load driver: swrast Could not initialize GLX?

angelv commented on 2018-07-04 14:45

I just updated to the latest versions (complete system upgrade, plus updated mendeleydesktop), but now when I try to start Mendeley I get:

libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast Could not initialize GLX

But glxgears, for example, works without any issues.

Any idea?
