A dnf search for libtidy gives this

# dnf provides libtidy.so*
Last metadata expiration check: 0:32:45 ago on Wed 17 Nov 2021 10:43:04 AM CST.
libtidy-5.7.28-6.fc34.x86_64 : Runtime library for tidy
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Provide    : libtidy.so.5()(64bit)

That means you should install libtidy at the same time as nixnote2. As you can see it is in the fedora repo for F34, although the same search on f35 does not reveal it.

Maybe you should contact the copr maintainer with the issue since that package has apparently not been upgraded for use with F35.


yeah i did a search for the package but didn’t find any… maybe now is the ideal time to switch over to Joplin ey? but yes, i will contact that guy and message him, thanks for taking the time :slight_smile:



I just got this reply email from Robert Spiegel:

I have no idea how fedora binary repositories work…but you can always use the AppImage version. The last one is: [url]https://github.com/robert7/nixnote2/releases/download/v2.1.6/NixNote2-x86_64.AppImage[/url]

info: [url]https://github.com/robert7/nixnote2/wiki/HowTo---Run-AppImage[/url]

btw you are reporting the problem in the wrong repository - this one is upstream, but dead
but my repository is also out of maintenance… but the current binaries should work quite OK

the App image version will pickup the same data which you used before with system packages; no extra action needed from your side

the AppImage version has the tidy library embedded - so this solves your problem of missing library

there is a bit explanation here: HowTo What to do if the app crashes · robert7/nixnote2 Wiki · GitHub
