@marmistrz: An oversight. I added it now. Thanks!

Why is --optimize=1 not passed to

I can also confirm that the font-changing crash no longer happens with the latest version. Many thanks for your help and the hard work you do in maintaining this package. Cheers!

With the new Mnemosyne version (2.5), the font-changing crash no longer happens for me. Just re-install the package to get that version.

I switched to sha256 now for this package.
But I'm wondering, if this is best practice, why does `makepkg -g` still generate an md5sum by default?

marmistrz commented on 2017-07-14 12:26

Btw. it may be a good idea to move on to sha256/512sums. md5 collisions are so easy nowadays.

I can confirm that error. Will investigate.

This is my first time installing Mnemosyne. Here are my observations when looking for the three locations you describe

-there are two folders, 'Mnemosyne' and 'mnemosyne'
-Mnemosyne contains
QtWebEngine (folder)
-mnemosyne contains:
backups (folder)
default.db_media (folder)
history (folder)
plugins (folder)
default.db (SQLite3 database)
default.db-journal (unknown)

-there is one folder, 'mnemosyne' which contains
_pycache_ (folder)
config.db (SQLite3 database) (Python script) (plain text document)

-could not be found

I went ahead and deleted the mnemosyne folders in the two locations (backing up first). Afterwards, I tried to launch mnemosyne from the launcher icon, and now it loads! I was also able to successfully import my .cards file from backup.

Unfortunately, a new problem occurs when I try to change the font style or size:
An unexpected error has occurred.
Please forward the following info to the developers:

However, if this is the only problem...I can live with it for now. Many thanks for your time and help.

I'm not getting that error on Arch Linux / KDE.

However, the Mnemosyne mailing list seems to have a report of the same error by a Linux Mint user a few months ago:!topic/mnemosyne-proj-users/OEI50SSlzf4
Apparently it was solved by "making sure leftovers from a previous partial install were deleted", though no details are given.

Did you have an existing ~/.local/share/mnemosyne/ or ~/.config/mnemosyne/ or ~/.Mnemosyne/, and if so, does removing those folders fix the problem? (Be sure to make backup first of course.)

Hello, I just installed Mnemosyne 2.4.1 via AUR in Manjaro Linux xfce. Upon launching the program, the following error occurred. Any assistance is appreciated.

@jsh6789: I've added it to optdepends for now, since not every Mnemosyne installation needs to support starting a sync server.
