Re: How to run the build version of zim?



You should create a "launcher" script (eiter a batch script on
Windows, a shell script on Linux) setting an explicit value for the
environment variables used by zim to lookup its configuration and
notebooks. Look here:

As for your development branch picking up the wrong modules... are you
sure that is the case? If you run zim.py from your development
directory, it should work. Something like
python /path/to/your/work/zim.py

Also, make sure there isn't any other instance of zim running, or use
the --no-daemon option, like this:
python /path/to/your/work/zim.py --no-daemon

Hope that helps!
