@lenerd. You're right. Licence updated. Thanks.

Shouldn't the license tag say AGPL3 instead of GPL3?

SHA256 in the pkgbuild seems to e wrong for the x86_64 package. I got "c105a1f17829f6c85529b3bf98bacd667bf57d1c7beda0cdc78f181a091f7806 Zotero-5.0.87_linux-x86_64.tar.bz2" when downloading from their site. Can you take a look at this?

@coxackie, without gtk2, I get and error in namcap:

zotero E: Dependency gtk2 detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/lib/zotero/updater'])

As updater is not used, I'll try to remove the gtk2 dependency in next version.

Is gtk2 a hard dependency here? I just ran zotero without gtk2 present, and it seemed to work fine.

Yes, Firefox Nightly has supported Wayland since 15.11.2018 (Firefox 63). So I have to use xwayland and wait for them to upddate the bundled Firefox until then.

@Raketenjoint Just my amateur guess. Zotero is based on Firefox, but it is bundled with its own dependent version of Firefox, which is somehow old. For example, with Zotero 5.0.85-1, executing $ /usr/lib/zotero/zotero-bin --version returns Mozilla Firefox 60.9.0. My guess is that either this version of Firefox does not support Wayland, or the bundled Firefox does not enable the Wayland support.

Zotero fails to start without Xwayland on Wayland systems with:

Error: no DISPLAY environment variable specified.

This is strange since GTK3 should support Wayland natively by default.

@juanmah thank you. Thats a good idea. I'll try it after an backup of the database.

There's no need to keep a shell around when launcing zotero, please use exec:


# Increase open files limit
# Mozilla file functions (OS.File.move()/copy(), NetUtil.asyncFetch/asyncCopy()) can leave file
# descriptors open for a few seconds (even with an explicit inputStream.close() in the case of
# the latter), so a source installation that copies ~500 translators and styles (with fds for
# source and target) can exceed the default 1024 limit.
# Current hard-limit on Ubuntu 16.10 is 4096
ulimit -n 4096

CALLDIR="$(dirname "$(readlink -f "$0")")"
exec "$CALLDIR/zotero-bin" -app "$CALLDIR/application.ini" "$@"
