Re: Zim release 0.68 rc 1



Hello, it is working from source if no Windows-installer yet. Maybe it
seems to bit difficult, you need some experience with environment
variables, and PATH, but it works for me. 

I use the next method, for years, I always using the default install
paths and configuration, if I do not write otherwise: 

	* Install PYTHON 2 (https://www.python.org/ [4]), during the
installation check _Add python.exe to PATH option, _or add to python.exe
to the path manually.
 	* Install PYGTKALLINONE package
[5]). Optional modules maybe unnecessary, but I used to install it.
 	* Upgrade pip (last Python 2 have it default), so use the next command
in a Terminal: python -m pip install --upgrade pip
 	* Install PYPIWIN32 dependencies with pip, use the next command in
Terminal: pip install pypiwin32
 	* Download and extract ZIM (http://zim-wiki.org/downloads/ [6]). I
always extracting to C:\Program Files (x86)\Zim Desktop Wiki\ folder.
 	* If you need up-to-date LOCALIZATION, you can download it from
Launchpad (https://translations.launchpad.net/zim/pyzim [7]), it depends
on how often updating localization that you use. Extract them to
translation folder of Zim, and run the following command in Zim
directory: python setup.py build_trans
 	* Add a new environment variable, called LANG, and set to language tag
which you want to use (_hu_HU_ for hungarian, _en_GB_ or _en_US_ to
english, and so on...).
 	* Running zim.py from Zim directory, in my case I use next command:
C:\Python27\pythonw.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zim Desktop Wiki\zim.py"
--standalone If it is running, yu can create them to a shortcut just
right-click to desktop, choose New\Shortcut and add the used command to
the pop-up window.
 	* If you want to use plugins you need installing following softwares,
and add them to the PATH:

 	* BOXCUTTER - http://keepnote.org/boxcutter/ [8] (Add to path:
_C:\Program Files (x86)\Boxcutter_) (Insert Screenshot plugin)
 	* GNU LILYPOND - http://www.lilypond.org/ [9] (Add to path:_
C:\Program Files (x86)\LilyPond\usr\bin_) (Insert Score plugin)
 	* GNU PLOT - http://www.gnuplot.info/ [10] (Add to path: C:\Program
Files\gnuplot\bin) (Insert Gnuplot plugin)
 	* GNU R - http://www.r-project.org [11] (Add to path:_ C:\Program
Files\R\R-3.1.1\bin_) (Insert GNU R Plot plugin)
 	* GRAPHVIZ - http://www.graphviz.org [12] (Add to path:_ C:\Program
Files (x86)\Graphviz2.38\bin_) (Insert Diagram plugin)
 	* MIKTEX - http://www.miktex.org [13] (Add to path:_ C:\Program
Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin_) (Insert Equation plugin)
 	* GIT - http://git-scm.com/ [14] (Add to path:_ C:\Program
Files\Git\bin_) (Version Control plugin - optional install only if you
 	* MERCURIAL - https://www.mercurial-scm.org/ [15] (Add to path:_
C:\Program Files\Mercurial _and C:\Program Files\TortoiseHG) (Version
Control plugin - optional install only if you use)
 	* BAZAAR - http://bazaar.canonical.com/ [16] (Add to path:_ C:\Program
Files (x86)\Bazaar_) (Version Control plugin - optional install only if
you use)
 	* FOSSIL -
https://www.fossil-scm.org/index.html/doc/trunk/www/index.wiki [17] (Add
to path:_ C:\Program Files (x86)\Fossil_) (Version Control plugin -
optional install only if you use)

 	* For Insert Sequence Diagram plugin, you need SEQDIAG python library,
you can install it using pip: pip install seqdiag
 	* Spellchecker plugin is a bit tricky. It need PYGTKSPELL library but
it compiled only for old Python versions and LIBENCHANT library which I
didn't find easily. Follow this steps:

 	* Install pyenchant using pip: pip install pyenchant
 	* Download PyGTKSpell
[18]) and extract it.
 	* Open the extracted PyGTKSpell-2.25.3.win32-py2.6.exe file in a text
editor (I'm using Notepad++), yes it is a binary file and we will edit
 	* Using Search&Replace function and replacing "target_version=2.6"
with "target_version=2.7" (line 918)
 	* Save the file with the following name:
 	* Download and install Abiword
(https://portableapps.com/apps/office/abiword_portable [19]), portable
version is enough, definitely we don't need Abiword, and unfortunately
there are no windows builds for Abiword 3+.
 	* Copy AbiWordPortable\App\AbiWord\bin\libenchant.dll to
C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\enchant folder.
 	* Copy
and libenchant_myspell.dll to C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\enchant
 	* Spellchecking need dictionaries, I'm using myspell dictionaries from
Debian repositories but you can get other dictionaries from other sites
or repos. (I'm using https://packages.debian.org/stable/myspell-hu
[20]). Extract to
C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\enchant\share\enchant\myspell folder and
rename hu_HU_u8.aff to hu_HU.aff and hu_HU_u8.dic to hu_HU.dic
 	* Run PyGTKSpell-2.25.3.win32-py2.7.exe and install PyGTKSpell.
 	* Open C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\gtk-2.0\gtkspell.pyd file in a
text editor (Notepad++), using Search&Replace function replace
"python26.dll" to "python27.dll". Save the file.
 	* Add to PATH: C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\enchant\
 	* Select SpellChecker plugin in Zim (it should be selectable yet),
click to Configure and add the language code to the plugin.

Maybe it is a difficult way, but it works for me, and it must be doing
once, if Jaap release a new version of Zim, I replacing my Zim folder
