I now created another package called kiwix-desktop. Use that instead of this. It compiles from source so it'll take longer to install, but I wasn't able to find an official binary package.

@core_contingency that url is to the source, not the binary of kiwix and as this is a binary package it wouldn't be correct. I'll probably just delete this package.

404 Error.

New URL for AUR script should be: https://download.kiwix.org/release/kiwix-desktop/kiwix-desktop-2.0-rc1.tar.gz

They seem to be distributing v2.0 even though it is still a release candidate, as both the flatpak and the appimage are using version 2.0-rc1.

404 error when trying to download the source.

Broken for me too. It cannot load ZIM files.

Getting the error: "Are you sure this is a ZIM file?"

Broken for me, very few zim files will actually load. For example, "Unable to load wikipedia_en_all_novid_2018-10.zim. Are you sure this is a ZIM file?". Same for most new zim files.

Also getting segmentation faults whenever I try to index one of the working zim's.

Any version updates? I think a bugfix for the latest wikipedia zim file opening occurred in August 2018, and I would love to have it for my PC. Thanks!

nic96 commented on 2018-03-03 22:45

@yesday It should be fixed now.
