There are a few issues regarding the lack of LD_LIBRARY_PATH for Fish such as weird LD_LIBRARY_PATH behavior #2456 where the developers have stated that they won’t add support for it. Putting env LD_LIBRARY_PATH before a command works, but something like set -gx LD_LIBRARY_PATH ... $LD_LIBRARY_PATH in your config file does not work as intended. The workaround is to add this after your normal set invocation:

set -xg LD_LIBRARY_PATH (printf '%s\n' $LD_LIBRARY_PATH | paste -sd:)

Unable to find LibLZMA

Try installing xz-libs and xz-devel. For some reason, the maintainers have changed the name from LZMA Utils to XZ Utils.

Unable to find wxWidgets

For some reason, for some projects that depend on GTK2, installing wxGTK isn’t sufficient. You also need compat-wxGTK3-gtk2 (and the -devel packages if necessary).

Update all repositories in the current directory

Two use-cases for this are updating vim plugins or golang packages. Zarat at StackOverflow suggests this:

find . -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type d -print -exec git -C {} pull \;

If you are using the Fish shell, you need to quote the brackets, ‘{}’. See issue #95.

YouCompleteMe crashes due to libtinfo.so version mismatch

As pointed out by pdavydov108 in YouCompleteMe issue #778, the fix is to install ncurses-compat-libs. Fedora comes with libtinfo.so.6, however, the version of Clang required by YouCompleteMe has a dependency on libtinfo.so.5.

KeePassHttp no longer works

If you were using keepasshttp-connector it is now deprecated in favor of keepassxc-browser. Install smorks’ keepassnatmsg plugin for compatibility with normal KeePass (instead of KeePassXC).

Disable TCP/IP and use sockets for MySQL

On Linux, MySQL will create a socket in a location defined by the socket variable found in /etc/my.cnf. For example, the value may be /usr/lib/mysql/mysql.sock. However, by default, it will still listen on a TCP port, which may be undesirable if you don’t plan on exposing your server to the Internet. Simply add skip-networking to /etc/my.cnf.

SELinux is preventing abrt-action-sav from write access on the directory /var/lib/rpm

If you are receiving this error or a similar one involving dbenv.lock, it means that your /var/lib/rpm directory has the wrong SELinux contexts applied to it. Verify this with ls -alZ /var/lib/rpm/. You should see files/directories with the var_lib_t rather than rpm_var_lib_t label. This may be the result of bug #1461313 where running rpm --rebuilddb will set the wrong context on the entire directory. Fix it by running sudo restorecon -rv /var/lib/rpm.

Duplicity says decryption failed when using GPG

TODO: more research needed.

By default, Duplicity uses pinentry in order to prompt for the password. If for whatever reason this is failing, you can instruct it to connect to the GPG agent by specifying --use-agent, i.e:

duplicity --use-agent --gpg-binary='gpg2' --encrypt-sign-key your-key
