The wiki editor Zim has been installed on Mepis 11 in my laptop for quite a while and never gave problems. Suddenly, yesterday, it would not open; trying in a terminal using $ zim yields this error message:
Code: Select all
File system set to ASCII or Latin1, using UTF-8 instead.
The error appeared yesterday for the first time, and has reappeared today after a complete re-install/re-update of Mepis 11.
The following may or may not be relevant: Two months ago I installed PCLOS 2012.02 in another partition of this laptop. In previous times several other distros were installed in that partition. All my data files, including the ~/Notes file used by Zim, had been moved to a separate partition several years ago and linked back to the Mepis (or PCLOS or whatever), and this arrangement has worked without error until now. Zim appears to be the only application affected; Kmail, VirtualBox, Knotes, and xpad, have continued working correctly.
Also perhaps not relevant: The error does NOT affect Zim in Mepis 11 on my desktop machine; Zim on that machine is shared between Mepis 11 and Mint 12 KDE and works fine in both.
Is there any way I can get Zim working correctly again in Mepis on my laptop?
In faith, Dave
