When I call code-editor whether from the commandline or from the application menu, it fails. On terminal emulator it responds with the following output:
gbonnema ~ code-editor
Failed to load core: Could not find 'Core.pluginspec' in /usr/lib64/code-editor/plugins,/home/gbonnema/.local/share/data//code-editor/code-editor/plugins/2.8.2
The required file is present in /usr/lib64/code-editor/plugins as part of the install. I installed it a few versions ago, maybe in Fedora 28. I upgrade each version as soon as I can (after a 2 week cool down to be sure nothing is wrong). I also did a relabel this morning by restarting after a touch /.autorelabel. But the problem remains.
I have no idea why the program cannot find the file Core.pluginspec as it is clearly there and it seems accessible:
gbonnema ~ ls -l /usr/lib64/code-editor/plugins/Core.pluginspec
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1199 Jan 31 16:59 /usr/lib64/code-editor/plugins/Core.pluginspec
Does anyone have any idea in what direction to look for a solution?
I installed the package and see the same issue. It appears that the package has not been updated in quite some time and so is probably broken. I can’t find where the source code is hosted either so it’s quite possible it’s no longer maintained:
Well … I had no idea about this rpms-site and the info it contains: nice!
It’s not that I really need this editor, I was just curious about it. Also, it doesn’t happen a lot that packages in Fedora don’t work on arrival, so I guess I just jumped to the conclusion it was my setup.
Thanks for investigating and yes, I will look out for other tools.
