Problem with Find in Files (Linux) - ""(0)
« on: August 27, 2007, 06:17:54 am »
I have just installed version 12.0.1.0 and have some problems with the Find in Files command. Whenever I hit the "Find" button in Find in Files I get a dialog with this error message (no files are ever found):

  Unrecognized command ""(0)

I am running SlickEdit on Linux (Ubuntu 7.04). When trying this under Windows XP, the Find in Files command seems to work normally. Any ideas on what could be the problem here?

Thanks in advance

Hello All,

There is a known issue, especially on newer distros such as FC6/FC7 where a recent version of fontconfig library is used, which our Background Search output is having trouble with.

As root, open the fontconfig configuration file located at /etc/fonts/fonts.conf, and find two cachedir elements near the top of the file. Either comment them out or delete them, and save the file.

Then fire up SlickEdit as you normally would and let me know if you see the same thing.

Best,
SlickEdit Support

Great! This worked great, Find in Files now seems to work!

However, I notice that I now get some additional warnings when I start programs like gedit:

jjo@JJohansonM55:~$ gedit
Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration.
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>/var/cache/fontconfig</cachedir>
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>~/.fontconfig</cachedir>

Is this OK?

Regards
Jorgen

I have the same problem with find in files, and fixed it as suggested.
However, it causes the same 3 lines every time I run gvim

Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration.
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>/var/cache/fontconfig</cachedir>
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>~/.fontconfig</cachedir>

Is there a fix for this new fontconfig problem, or is will there be a real fix for the slickedit problem?

Here's my info:

Hi, I am having the same problem with 11.0.2.  I don't like the "delete/comment out cache entries" approach, as it causes problems for other things.  Please help.

I am running Ubuntu 8.04.
