I installed ghostwriter via pamac gui > ghostwriter appeared in my menu & I put it in my panel.
When I clicked the ghostwriter icon in my panel, the ghostwriter window never opened.
I uninstalled & reinstalled ghostwriter with the same result: ghostwriter window never appeared.
I typed “ghostwriter” into terminal… & terminal replied:
Command “pandoc” is not available.
Command “multimarkdown” is not available.
Command “cmark” is not available.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
I don’t understand what this means: “Segmentation fault (core dumped)”
How should I install ghostwriter? I could install it via terminal. But before I try that I want to understand why I’m having this problem.
I think I found a solution to my problem via google. Last month another Manjaro user published a blog post about fixing the same ghostwriter problem: …Segmentation fault (core dumped):
A Segmentation Fault and a Peculiar Ghostwriter Install on Manjaro

But this user’s fix requires rebuilding an AUR package from sounce, which is currently beyond my ability. So unless someone can suggest an easier fix, my plan is to uninstell ghostwriter and wait for a newer ghostwriter version which solves the manjaro segmentation fault problem.
I downloaded: ghostwriter-1.8.1-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
I extracted this .zst file to: ghostwriter-1.8.1-4-x86_64.pkg.tar
I extracted this .tar file to: a usr folder which contained a folder titled “bin” & a folder titled “share”
the bin folder contains one file: “ghostwriter”.
I suppose that I should copy this “ghostwriter” file into my file system, iinto /usr/bin
But the share folder contain 5 folders, and I don’t know exactly how to copy these 5 folders into /usr/share.
Should I copy the share folder into /usr/share? Should retitle the share folder “ghostwriter” and then copy it into /usr/share? Should I copy only the 5 folders inside the share folder into /usr/share?
