View Full Version : How to get Zim to work in fc6

If any of you have tried the note taking app Zim in the fedora repo, you'll know that there's a bug that causes it to crash when you try to create a new page by making a link to a non-existent page. I wrote a note to the developer, and he informed me that that's a problem that for some reason only affects fedora users. He hasn't yet figured out what's causing it, but in the mean time, there's an easy fix:

Close zim and edit the config file (~/.config/zim/default.conf) and set "follow_new_link" to 0.

That gets everything running fine. It's a handy little program that I recommend. I believe it has most if not all of the functionality of tomboy, but it's not mono-based :)
