smile   Re: moving mods.d
Hello,

I've finally got gnomesword2-2.0.0 up and running, but without the commentaries, bible and dictionaries.:

if I do the following command:

$ gnomesword2 the program loads without the modules.

If I use this command:

$ cd /home/name/Dls/gnomesword2-2.0.0 and then
$gnomesword2 it loads the modules and everything is fine.

My question:

How do I move "mods.d" from /gnomesword2-2.0.0 too /usr/share/sword I've tried everything and it doesn't work.

God Bless

Re: moving mods.d
Yeah, I've got a similar problem

I installed GS on my Ubuntu sys and then added other user accounts. They don't have the new modules I downloaded.

Plus the update manager won't find them in my filesystem.

I would have to download them again, as it now stands--and I have 28k dialup!

I guess I will go under the hood again.....confused

Re: moving mods.d
I installed GS on my Ubuntu sys and then added other user accounts. They don't have the new modules I downloaded.

GS' install manager (which just uses sword's installmgr under the hood) puts newly-downloaded items in ~/.sword. Simply move them to /usr/share/sword (or wherever /etc/sword.conf indicates) and everyone on the system should be able to find them.

Alternatively, symlink /usr/share/sword/mods.d to ~/.sword/mods.d and /usr/share/sword/modules to ~/.sword/modules, and you'll get the same effect.

Be careful to set open-readable perms, of course.
