No idea to be honest - I don't use this anymore. It's not a message that I've added, it must be from an upstream change.

I'm a long time user of Zim, was just updating this package and I noticed this message:

>>> zim package need a browser to work properly
>>> you can choose a browser like firefox, chromium, konqueror, ...

Since I have never used a browser with Zim, except accidentally, I thought this was surprising. I went and checked out the screencast, and the Usage examples in the manual, and I couldn't find any suggestion that a browser was required.. Well, I still have no idea why you print that message. As far as I can tell, browser only interacts directly with Zim in the case of the 'Print to browser' command.

Can you comment on why that message is included?

This still works fine (whoever flagged it out-of-date...)

I am glad it is working now! Feel free to take over.

My mistake. I kept looking at the "zim --version" output but it says 0.60 even if the installed version if r680. Thanks again.

Thanks for reporting. For me it compiles. What is your makepkg output?

Thanks for the fix but the modified PKGBUILD no longer compiles the bzr version and just the release version 0.60. Are you sure about the fix? Can you look at it or send me the former PKGBUILD ? Thanks a lot.

BTW, I might eventually adopt it.

I am sorry for the very late response. I overlooked your comment.

I updated the package according to the new packaging guidelines.

However, I am no longer using Zim and thus abandon the package.

Please feel free to adopt it.

bzr revision to use is hardcoded to 439. Could you update the PKGBUILD so it fetches the latest bzr revision available. Thanks
