Solving Dictionary bug

Post by MaxV » Thu Sep 13, 2018 1:46 pm

The last versions of Livecode can't load the dictionary on some Linux distributions. If you launch the dictionary, a black browser appears.
It's a library problem.
The workaround is to use the old library of an old version of livecode like the 8.
Here is the solution (change the first directory to the last version of Livecode installer):

Code: Select all

su
cd /opt/livecode/livecodecommunity-9.0.1.x86_64/Externals/Database\ Drivers 
mv  dbsqlite.so   dbsqlite.so.bak
cp /opt/livecode/livecodecommunity-8.2.0-dp-2.x86_64/Externals/Database\ Drivers/dbsqlite.so ./
cd ../../Runtime/Linux/x86-64/Externals/Database\ Drivers/
rm dbsqlite.so 
ln -s ../../../../../Externals/Database\ Drivers/dbsqlite.so
