Zotero not enabled

Post by guntars » Mon Jun 15, 2020 3:33 pm

Hi!

Ubuntu 20.04. Zotero 5 installed via Ubuntu Software and running. Zotero tab in TextMaker is greyed out. How to enable it?

I'm still on trial version and Zotero integration was the main reason for trying out TextMaker. And it is not working. What a sad story.

sminfo is attached.

Have a installed a "real" Zotero, or just the snap?

Hi!

I had it installed as "snap".

It is working when using the official tar package downloaded from Zotero. So I guess case is solved.

If you install it via snap, it is sandboxed. I have no idea how that is supposed to work because the sandbox shields its server from other applications reaching it. Sometimes Canonical does "interesting" things.
