I’ve got a weird problem. I run
sudo ./install.sh, everything is success yet I still get “do you want to update window” on startup, and I open the help window, I discover Anki is still in 2.1.40, and hasn’t updated itself since! even though I distinctly remember installing a version after 2.140!
I download 2.1.40 package, run the uninstall script, get “uninstall complete” message from terminal, Anki icon disappears from my dock and then I run the 2.1.44 script, yet the version is still 2.1.40! and I still get “Do you want to update” window at startup!
Using Manjaro Gnome.
Version 2.1.40 (cf446733)
Python 3.9.4 Qt 5.15.2 PyQt 5.15.4
Maybe you have older files lying around in another location?
Holy shit, I love you @dae wouldn’t have survived the last few academic years, maybe would’ve straight up dropped out, if it wasn’t for Anki.
Ok so, I searched via root folder and deleted all the files with keyword Anki. I did find a binary “Anki” in /proc/63105/cwd/bin/ and a symlink (I think its called) to downloads folder 's Anki dir inside cwd/bin .
I figured it was time for a long awaited distro hop and wiped my root partition, installed Manajaro KDE, and still 2.1.40 greets me! I don’t know how that’s possible since anki is always installed with sudo and I always use tar package from the website.
The proc entries are likely your terminal. After uninstalling Anki, what happens if you type in ‘anki’ or ‘Anki’ in the terminal?
I distro hopped to ubuntu in the meantime and the update problem is gone.
I tried to replicate it by uninstalling current version and installing 2.1.40 again but it seems fine in ubuntu, will report back if its still present on manjaro.
I did type anki on terminal while on manjaro and the terminal said command not found.
