@juanmah thank you. Thats a good idea. I'll try it after an backup of the database.

There's no need to keep a shell around when launcing zotero, please use exec:


# Increase open files limit
# Mozilla file functions (OS.File.move()/copy(), NetUtil.asyncFetch/asyncCopy()) can leave file
# descriptors open for a few seconds (even with an explicit inputStream.close() in the case of
# the latter), so a source installation that copies ~500 translators and styles (with fds for
# source and target) can exceed the default 1024 limit.
# Current hard-limit on Ubuntu 16.10 is 4096
ulimit -n 4096

CALLDIR="$(dirname "$(readlink -f "$0")")"
exec "$CALLDIR/zotero-bin" -app "$CALLDIR/application.ini" "$@"

@jbehmel, officially Zotero has not published yet the version. When they publish a new version, I'll update this package.

As it seems that it's a bug appeared in the last version, I suggest you to get and makepkg the PKGBUILD of a previous version:

Would be great to have the updated package, as its still flagged out of date.

Hi there, I just installed zotero and ran into this problem, while trying to add books to the library using drag & drop:

Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIFile.isDirectory]

Would "zotero" be the package that ran Zotero's build scripts? Zotero's build scripts don't actually compile anything. They download the Firefox binary and do some repackaging of the config files so it looks like Zotero.

1) create the directories in package() with `install -dm755 ...` and not mkdir.
2) use sha256 sums, not md5.
Thanks :)

PS: Agree with fusion809, this package should be called zotero-bin

fusion809 commented on 2017-11-03 08:06

Shouldn't this package be called zotero-bin? After all it's built from the binaries built for Linux and not the source code.
