Note that there is a plugin index thread in the plugin subforum.

Makes it a little easier to see what's available.

Passes the test, but still does not start without having to take heroic measures (Ctrl-C, Cloce, Close) before the Sigil window come up ;-3(

The error messsages are:

As far as running from the commandline goes; you are starting Sigil by using the /usr/bin/sigil script and not by directly running the /usr/lib/sigil/sigil binary, correct?

Quite probably,just typing sigil in a console.

So I tried /usr/bin/sigil and got this:
Code:
ron@localhost:~ $ /usr/lib/sigil/sigil
/usr/lib/sigil/sigil: error while loading shared libraries: libsigilgumbo.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Can that be of help ?

That's what I would expect if you bypassed the launch script. It helps to know you're not doing that, but it doesn't help me understand why it won't launch normally from the menu or the command line (when it does for me when installed from the same repos).

Are you running one of the official PCLinuxOS versions or did you happen to download one of the community-created versions? The official downloads typically allow you to choose between KDE and Mate for Desktop Environments. I'd like to try and set up a virtual machine of the exact same system/DE you're using if I can.

Also make certain you have the lib64python3.6 package installed. It should match the version of python3 you have installed if there's any question.

lib64python3.6 is installed, and both it and python3 are version 3.6.5-3

I figured, but I had to be certain.

OK, here's the scoop.

After setting up Community-PCLinuxOS-Xfce (which seems to have a few issues of its own). I ran "apt-get dist-upgrade" and when that was done I ran "apt-get install sigil". Once all the extra packages were finished installing, I was in the same boat you were: Sigil wouldn't launch from the menus, and I got the exact same errors you did trying to launch via the command-prompt. I can assure you that this was not the case with either of the official PCLOS releases.

Long story short ... I removed mozplugger (and one other multimedia thingimabob that depended upon it), and after that Sigil launched just fine--from both the menus and from the command prompt.

Next up: downloaded and installed the testplugin and ran it. Needless to say most tests failed. So I installed the sigil-plugin-framework package and ran the testplugin again. This time, everything except the 2 gui modules (PyQt5 and Tkinter), and the libhunspell test passed. I made the symbolic link to the linhunspell-1.6.so library in the /usr/lib/sigil/ directory that we talked about in this thread and that test then passed.

NOTE: those who rely on the PCLOS sigil-plugin-framework package to make Sigil plugin-ready will be disappointed the first time they try to use a Sigil plugin that has a gui interface (which to be fair is probably only most of them), since that package doesn't install tkinter or PyQt5. So I installed the tkinter3 package and the python3-qt5 (and python3-sip) packages. This fixed the tkinter test, but not the PyQt5 test. Suffice to say that PyQt5 is badly broken when installed via the python3-qt5/python3-sip packages. I couldn't even get PyQt5 to work outside of Sigil. So I removed those two packages.

I then installed python3-pip and used that to install PyQt5 and got it working via a python3 shell at least, but it never would work in the Sigil testplugin (even though the location pip installed it was in Python's sys.path). Go figure.

So, yeah.... It's a bit of mess. But still, you ought to have a fairly functional version of Sigil just by removing the mozplugger package. There's not many plugins that use a PyQt5 interface, so many will still be available to use.

Works perfectly now, thanks again for your help.

I have copied the gist of that information on the PCLinuxOS forum, for their edification.
