REQUEST: Zim Desktop Wiki

#1 Post by fladd » Thu Jun 21, 2018 6:16 pm

The version in the Debian repo is quite old. In fact, so old, that some things are not compatible with the current version. Since I sync notebooks via Dropbox with other OS, I cannot use Zim on MX at the moment.

0.68 from Debian testing is backported for our test repo. You can try it early here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1NZ29q ... 1qwvOUmlCe

Note that many packages needed for plugins are suggested, not hard depends: https://packages.debian.org/buster/zim

I'm late to this discussion but I recall having trouble upgrading 0.60 (repo) to 0.65 (package) due to templates not being removed completely.
Once old zim was completely removed zim worked fine across my cloud connected computers. Note: watch out for file case issues if you sync with dropbox (sometimes it will cause filecase conflicts)

PS Bleachbit will mess up zim, it will remove /tmp/zim-user folder. Add your user's /tmp/zim-... folder to bleach bit's white list.
