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!

@yesday It should be fixed now.

@nic96: Kiwix works perfectly now! Thank you nic96.

nic96 commented on 2017-10-10 19:18

@Asher256: Done

@THS: thanks for the fix.

@to the maintainers 'nic96' and 'felihommen': it could be interesting to add "ln -sf /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/kiwix/xulrunner/" + 'zlib' dependency to the PKGBUILD, to fix the issue reported in the comments permanently (the issue: "/usr/lib/kiwix/xulrunner/ version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/").
