#41 Not work in Mint 13

David Wu


It's how it look in Mint, I use apt-get install retext to install it, how to fix it?


  • Thank you for the report. Most probably you are experiencing QTBUG-18807 or something like that.

    • Which spin of Mint are you using (GNOME / LXDE / Debian Edition / etc)?

    • What version of ReText do you use? There were some changes in icon theme handling in 3.0.4.

    I will try to fix that, but as a workaround you can add "iconTheme=YOURICONTHEME" line to the configuration file. YOURICONTHEME should be "Mint-X" on Mint.

    • status: open --> accepted
    • milestone: 2.1-updates --> 3.1
  • Well, since you used "apt-get install retext", you are probably using 2.1.4 or 2.1.5 version. Can you please add my PPA and upgrade it to 3.0.4?

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mitya57
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install retext

    I believe this should fix your problem.

    • Thanks!

      But I still don't know what spin of Mint you are using (there are 2 versions of Ubuntu-based Mint, 2 versions of LMDE and even some more custom builds).

    I do what you suggest, and update to retext/precise uptodate 3.0.4-1~ppa1,
    but still the same.

  • Thank you for the report, this is now fixed in ReText 3.1.0 and in 3.0.x Git branch. I'll push an update to my PPA now.
