[solved] Xiphos Bible Guide won't copy/export

Postby lilgman » 22 Oct 2013 07:32

Hi,

I am using the October 2013 update pack of XFCE version. Xiphos is 3.1.5 webkit.

I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who can help me figure out/fix why Xiphos Bible Guide software won't copy/export a passage. Nothing happens in the gui when I choose copy export, but when I start Xiphos in terminal I get the following:

Code: Select all

~$ xiphos

The last four lines are the ones that appear when I click the copy/export option.

Thanks for your help. I am also going to see if I can get help from the Xiphos people.

I found this on the #xiphos IRC node:

Code: Select all

Now talking on #xiphos
* Topic for #xiphos is: * ξίφος Bible software * http://xiphos.org/ * Question? Include "xiphos" or "sword" to induce alerts. (Be patient for response; many idle here.) * Fix for Copy/Export menu: http://ftp.xiphos.org/sword/debugging/3.1.5-export-dialog.patch[/color] *
* Topic for #xiphos set by charcoal!~karl@c-24-23-101-77.hsd1.pa.comcast.net at Wed Jul
The patch mentioned was helpful. To apply it follow the direction here:

http://sourceforge.net/p/gnomesword/bugs/481/

The patch returned some errors in terminal, but it works.

Thanks lilgman for sharing this tip 8-)
They did not know it was impossible so they did it.
