• Incorrect installation path for feedreader 2.0.1-1


    feedreader 2.0.1-1 is installed to /pkg/pkg/feedreader/usr/bin instead of to /usr/bin making the application un-runnable, this needs to be corrected.

  • Just tried to install it and I can confirm the problem.

  • I confirm the error too. Feedreader 2.0.1 is installed from [antergos] repo with wrong paths and is unusable.

    The package with the same name exists also in the AUR - feedreader 2.0. This one, if installed, works correctly. It is installed into /bin, /lib64, /usr/share folders.

    Pamac gets confused because of identical package names in AUR and [antergos]. It proposes to upgrade AUR-feedreader with [antergos]-feedreader. If upgrade is accepted, it immediately breaks AUR-feedreader. Feedreader stops working.

    Personally, I prefer to use Ice-SSB, a site specific browser, to get a standalone web applications in any DE. Any web site | page may be transformed in a regular application - like Distrowatch, Antergos Home, Antergos Forum, Inoreader, Feedly, everything. They are much faster and more reliable than feedreader.

  • Antergos devs have noticed this topic, and have promptly fixed the issue. Feedreader package from [antergos] repo is installed in correct folders and works as it should now.

    Well done. Thanks.

  • Almost, seems to have some conflict issues requiring force to override.

  • Most probably it’s a conflict with residues from previous unsuccessful attempts to install the package.

    Solution:

    sudo pacman -S feedreader --force
    

    It will overwrite already existing unneeded feedreader files.

  • I mentioned that it was conflicting, the fliepath /usr/lib64 should not come up as a conflict. It would not surprise me a force install broke something. I ended installing it from a git package instead.
