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.

@ishitatsuyuki, was that a reply to my comment? If so, that didn't seem to make any difference. N.B. I'm talking about messages at every new tmux session, not just during the zsh-zim-git install script.

Should be better now, enjoy!

FWIW I tried installing this again, and it now works fine to start. However, when I start a tmux session, I get flooded with the same `zcompare:zcompile:2: can't write zwc file` errors. I also noticed that gavsiu posted upstream, and the dev again suggested not to install in a root-only directory. It's a pity, as I'll never remember to update though. :(

@gavsiu: please check if you have zsh stuffs in /root. Also make sure the package is installed without any conflict.

Well, it should be loaded as long as global zshrc exists...

gavsiu commented on 2016-06-11 21:58

@ishitatsuyuki: Sorry, how do I check that? I've just installed zsh and only have a .zshrc in my user home folder. I haven't modified anything in /etc.

I just installed zim using the directions from the Git readme and the problem is not there. I'd like to use this package instead if the problem doesn't occur.

@gavsiu: Can you check if root has a custom zsh setup? The script will break if root doesn't load the global installed zshrc.

I'm getting the same issue now even though it's supposedly fixed.

zcompare:zcompile:2: can't write zwc file: /usr/lib/zim/modules/*.zwc

There are 123 lines and I substituted what was different on each line with a *

I've recently installed this on my unencrypted Arch install and did not have any issues. Although I cannot remember if I used the AUR or straight from GitHub.

I reinstalled on a different drive with FDE and this package is giving me that error. No .zimrc, copied my old .zimrc, copied my old .zim folder because for some reason I had one and I don't on the new install... nothing worked. This led me to believe maybe I didn't use this package.

@Rhinoceros: Latest PKGBUILD works fine for me. I could reproduce your problem if used old one.

BTW, I think init.zsh will source .zimrc...

Rhinoceros commented on 2016-04-25 07:38

@ishitatsuyuki I'm not sure what that fixed exactly? I'm still getting the same errors @Brottweiler, i.e. the install and `can't write zwc file` errors.

Ah, good point. So /etc/zsh/zshrc runs, calling /etc/zsh/zimrc (where the zmodules are defined), then /usr/lib/zim/init.zsh. Between these two source statements, I could add a line manually overwriting the zmodules. That's probably fine then. (Assuming I can work out the problems with the system-wide install.)

@Brottweiler CC @Rhinoceros
Fix uploaded.

@Rhinoceros: I'm not sure what you're going to do. You can change zim modules by modifying zimrc: that's loaded after global configuration and before initialization.
