I use kde, so $_gtkver gives nothing (at least on my system).

So there is no link made.

What do y'all think of this?

thiagowfx commented on 2016-10-23 16:59

I am not currently using this software, so I can't advise.

However, I'd say it's better to stick to one and only one. Choose gtk2 or gtk3, whatever you think it's more convenient. Since Arch supports gnome, which uses gtk3, I guess it would be a good default choice to make it more consistent with the rest of the system.

And, if changing it to gtk2 is just a matter of changing one flag (like --use-gtk2 instead of --use-gtk3), then you could leave a comment so users can change it at their own discretion.

All right?

OK. Which of the two should we be using, or should we make both available?
I also notice that both DocFetcher.GTK2 and DocFetcher.GTK3 are not chmod +x by default.
Should we just use GTK3 by default? I suggest a symlink called to DocFetcher.GTK3 then? That's somewhat simpler and allows for an easy change to GTK2 for the user.
We should also make GTK3 a dependency, shouldn't we?

Had to make the following change for docfetcher to start:

cd "/usr/share/docfetcher/"

Thx. I didn't realize there was a new version out ;-)
Is the PKGBUILD adequate?

bumped to 1.1.18

I've updated to 1.1.17 and added a basic .desktop file. Please post if there are any problems.
