Looks like you have the XDG_DATA_HOME environment parameter configured wrong. This should point to a writable folder, by default "~/.local/share" - but in your case it seems to point to "/sw/share" which is not writable.
You can check by typing "echo $XDG_DATA_HOME" in the xterm. And set it by "export XDG_DATA_HOME=~/.local/share" before running zim. -- Jaap On Thu, Dec 15, 2011 at 9:49 PM, BIN ZHANG <zhn...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi, Jaap: > > Thanks a lot for your response.
