Changing link is not working.

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 20. Dez 17:33 /usr/bin/zotero -> /usr/lib/zotero/zotero

Running /usr/lib/zotero/zotero does.

Running /usr/bin/zotero gives this error message:

Could not read application.ini

oops...reinstalling, as zotero no longer runs right when I start it from ~/bin, gives glib error

GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

so back to the aur version. odd thing is it tries to update even though the in the aur version is already the current one. I just updated everything yesterday so don't think it was an old package. anyway, the nag screens are, umm, naggy. I looked for setting in zotero, and it looks like the nag settings can be adjusted in the about:config of the advaned settings menu. could that be set to not nag in the pkgbuild?

uninstalling as zotero pushes updates through the interface and issues nag screen to update, but cannot b/c need sudo permission to write new file to bin. when run from ~/bin, it works fine and updates properly. just borrowing the zotero.desktop file from the aur to make a launcher.

for latest, change package version to, and first md5sum for x86_64 to '887b3a50611de4478e8c82e954e1629b' in PKGBUILD. Installation then proceeds with no problems.

@varnion java-environment and java-runtime are already optional dependencies in libreoffice.

varnion commented on 2015-02-05 15:09

please add jre8-openjdk as a optional dependency (for integration with libreoffice). maybe jre7 also works, didnt test.
