1) There does not appear to be a search box anymore.

2) Where exactly does your content get saved? "~/.config/Springseed" does not seem to be used anymore.

Thanks for catching this, James. The issue has been resolved.

This, from the people at "pacman", at

"Handling of symlink directories has changed in pacman-4.2, as noted in the release announcement: (Ctrl-F for "Directory Symlink Handling")

So this is not a bug; packages which try to install to /bin/ are now intentionally in conflict with core/filesystem, and need to be fixed to install to /usr/bin/ instead."

So, there it is. The install should be modified. The release notes, from the above link, explain:

"Directory Symlink Handling: Example time! Arch Linux has a /lib -> /usr/lib symlink. Previously, if pacman was installing a package and it found files in /lib, it would follow the symlink and install it in /usr/lib. However the filelist for that package still recorded the file in /lib. This caused heaps of difficulty in conflict resolving – primarily the need to resolve every path of all package files to look for conflicts. That was a stupid idea! So now if pacman sees a /lib directory in a package, it will detect a conflict with the symlink on the filesystem. If you were using this feature to install files elsewhere, you probably need to look into what a bind mount is! Note that this change requires us to correct the local package file list for any package installed using this mis-feature, so we bumped the database version. Upgrade using pacman-db-upgrade. Thanks to Andrew!"

This seems to require simply changing, in the PKGBUILD, "package(){...}",

mkdir ${pkgdir}/bin


mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/usr/bin

On install, produces:

(1/1) checking for file conflicts
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
springseed: /bin exists in filesystem

where the springseed package includes:

drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2015-01-02 12:24 bin/
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2014-06-21 01:53 usr/
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2015-01-02 12:24 usr/share/
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2014-06-21 01:53 usr/bin/

with, of course,

$ls -l /
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Oct 25 12:41 bin -> usr/bin

Using: pacman 4.2.0-5. Is that a pacman bug?

Installing with "--debug" adds:

debug: checking possible conflict: /bin/
debug: found file conflict /bin, packages springseed and (filesystem)

in contrast to:

debug: checking possible conflict: /usr/
debug: file is a directory, not a conflict

presumably since "/bin/" is a symbolic link and not a "directory" per se.

For the moment, using "--force" will work, to install. I will file a bug for "pacman".

Your old notes are still in ~/.config/Springseed/Notebooks/
The new notes aren't stored there. I haven't found them yet.

masnormen commented on 2014-06-29 22:58

The notes from the previous version seems to be disappeared (or worse, gone forever?). Is this normal? If not, then how to resolve this?

The issue with atom should be resolved.

Also, it appears that provides its own

I'm getting an error when trying to launch app:
$ springseed
/usr/bin/springseed: line 3: /usr/share/springseed/atom: No such file or directory

Thanks @ThisIsMyPlace. I didn't have time to update yesterday after @pedrogabriel's comment.

Also, LICENSE is now included in so it no longer needs to be pulled from git.
