The next person who discusses keygens will have their account suspended indefinitely.

I already removed the offending comments.

@Alad Not at all following what this is in reference to or what "discussing keygens" even means. Is this some comment pinned to every AUR comment section, or in reference to some specific transgression?

@stormp They just released a new version. Check to see if this fixes the Wayland problem.

@pgoet I don't the full reason, I do know that in Wayland WMClass is not used. And for icons/pinning to work correctly, the APP_ID must match the .desktop file name.

@stormp One thing I'm not following is why the filename masterpdfeditor5.desktop doesn't work with Wayland -- do you know why?

stormp commented on 2021-01-27 00:51

@pgoet Code Industry have replied again and said they will fix it for the next release :)

stormp commented on 2021-01-25 19:45

@pgoet Thanks, yeah I've raised it with Code Industry, but they're not very forthcoming thus far. I'll see what their next reply is. I think the app_id is correct, but the .desktop file is incorrectly named, by them (because this issue also affects Flatpak from Flathub, and their own tar.gz all of them incorrectly name the .desktop file to masterpdfeditor5.desktop - incorrect at least in the sense that it won't work properly with Wayland.

Once can view the app_id in Wayland by running this in a terminal: WAYLAND_DEBUG=1 masterpdfeditor5 |& grep 'xdg_toplevel@[0-9]+.set_app_id'

@stormp Where is the app_id set? As long as it doesn't mess up other users, I can probably change this, but would be better to take the issue upstream. That's what I did with the missing .dektop file, and they added it back.

stormp commented on 2021-01-25 16:20

I've resolved the issue with running on Wayland.

On Wayland for icons and task-manager pinning etc to work properly, an application's app_id and it's .desktop file name must match.

The app_id in this case is net.code-industry.masterpdfeditor The .desktop file is masterpdfeditor5.desktop

If one edit's the name of the .desktop file to net.code-industry.masterpdfeditor.desktop the application works perfectly in Wayland.

Can this be changed in the packaging here?

Had the same issue with OnlyOffice in Manjaro, and it was a packaging issue rather than upstream...

I will inform Code Industry too.
