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?

@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.

Hello. I'm getting problem checking the md5. Is it just me?

Please use depends_i686 and depends_x86_64 [1], source_i686 and source_x86_64 [2] , md5sums_i686 and md5sums_x86_64 [3] instead of checking the CARCH. Furthermore it seems like gconf is an optdepends [4].

1.16.1 fixed the huge load time. It was an upstream bug, as is shown here: https://www.mendeley.com/release-notes/

Mmmh, that's weird. I don't remember changing anything at all.
Running from console gives no error
Mendeley takes about 5 minutes to completely run, and then clicking on a folder takes 3 - 5 secs to show the content.
Previously (I mean, 1.15) ran perfectly.

Edit: I downgraded to 1.15.3 and is smooth

@MartinZ I don' t have any performance issue here.

I don't know if it has something to do with the PKGBUILD, but since last update (1.16) Mendeley takes ages to load and then the interface is also very slow.
