Since the upstream doesn't like zimfw getting packaged for global installation, and porting seems to be harder with the latest template changes, I'm going to stop maintaining this package. Contributions are still welcome.

As a git package, I believe the proper way of doing this package is have it conflict and replace zsh-zim; so when there is a stable release there can be a git package and a release package.

ishitatsuyuki commented on 2019-02-09 12:16

I don’t think that helps in any way. I already do that in the install file, and all you need is a rebuild and install of zsh-zim-git.

After each update, zsh floods the console with following error message: The solution is to invoke:

sudo find /usr/lib/zim/modules -iname "*.zwc" -exec rm -f {} \;

and reinstal zsh-zim-git. I think this should be added to the prepare() in PKGBUILD.

A big thanks for investigating: the zimrc issue is fixed.

* ZIM_HOME is set in /etc/zsh/zshrc, and that's in the "backup" list so you may have to manually overwrite.
* I think the zwc issues should fix after a reinstall (with correct zshrc).

Oh boy, this last update really screwed up my ZSH. I had to fix following things:

* ZIM_HOME is set incorrectly to $HOME/.zim instead of /usr/lib/zim by /usr/lib/zim/init.zsh, despite using zshrc from this package
* /usr/lib/zim/templates/zimrc is not sourced somehow - no additional modules are loaded and "No such module" errors visible. Quick fix, add: source /usr/lib/zim/templates/zimrc in /usr/lib/zim/init.zsh:15
* liquidprompt theme is not available (probably because /usr/lib/zimrc wasn't sourced)
* zsh in tmux is spewing out "zcompare:zcompile:2: can't write zwc file" messages, quick fix: add &>/dev/null in /usr/lib/zim/templates/zlogin:16

I guess this should fix the errors observed by @vodi, @tembleking and @Shebang

- Do you see any errors?
- What happens if you run `zsh --login`?

I think it's something being wrong in /etc. Please check the files in the "backup" list of PKGBUILD.

Another suspect is the precompilation went wrong. Uninstalling and reinstall (not update) will recreate a clean cache.

Detailed Problem description:

* Had zsh-zim-git installed and running before 2017-10-18
* updated zsh-zim-git via `pacaur -Syu'
* zim not loading when opening a new shell (e.g. prompt ist only `hostname%', C-r history search not working)

* i don't have zim-related config in my home folder - so not "something in their config"
* `source /etc/zsh/zshrc' does not change anything

If you need any additional infos (e.g. logs? configs?) let me know, I'm pleased to provide it.
If you have any suggestions how to get zim running, I'm open to try it.

Thank you for your effort maintaining this package for us

ishitatsuyuki and vodi,

It is now working for me. I'm thinking vodi and tembleking may have something in their configs that is causing the issue.

Thanks for updating so quickly ishitatsuyuki

ishitatsuyuki commented on 2017-10-19 04:20

Works for me. Explain your problem in detail.

vodi commented on 2017-10-18 16:40


I have the same problem as tembleking.
I updated the zsh-zim-git package with pacaur and after that zim doesn't get loaded.
I already tried uninstalling (/etc/zsh/zshrc was deleted) and reinstalling it, but it didn't work.

If you need additional infos, let me know.
