@vali: I tested Taskopen today again. Everything worked flawlessly. Thank you for providing this repository and for fixing the reported bugs.

@vali: Thank you for the update. taskopen diagnostics shows now properly the Taskopen version no.

taskopen <taskID> displays now the dialogue to choose which attachment to open.

When opening an URL it opens it not only in my default browser Brave but also in Firefox. Expected is only Brave. Bash doesn't return to the prompt and shows errors. I posted the details in the corresponding issue at your Github repository.

taskopen Notes opens now in vim. However, I cannot save changes. Please check the error message on Github.

@Dominik: I just updated the pkgbuild to the bugfix release 2.0.1. This might already solve your problem as there where some issues with the default config.

@vali Thank you for your instant response! I will open the issue as suggested. Thank you.

@Dominik: The error message you observe in the diagnostics output is not related to your problem. The message originates from the fact that the AUR pkg of taskopen is not built from git and therefore the version cannot be acquired during compilation. I need to fix that, though.

Regarding your actual problem, please create an issue on github at and remember adding the output of task 31 info.

After installation the program is neither opening urls nor Notes.

@ckafi: Could you share the complete output log? I cannot reproduce this error.

ckafi commented on 2018-02-16 11:34 (UTC)

Getting an error: install: target '/home/ckafi/taskopen/pkg/taskopen//usr/share/man/man1/' is not a directory: No such file or directory

kraetzin commented on 2017-04-10 09:14 (UTC)

Is it worth adding `xdg-utils` as a dependency? Without it I get `sh: xdg-open: command not found` when opening annotations.

@stef204 thanks for the reminder, I forgot to tag the commit.
