Bug Description

when trying to start sucsynct after updating to 14.04 it crashed telling me:

john@john-netbook:/usr/local/bin/sucsynct/includes$ ../sucsynct
/usr/local/bin/sucsynct/includes/../includes/easybashlib: Zeile 224: eb_on_exit_items ist nicht gesetzt.

(translation: Line 224: eb_on_exit_items not set.)

I added a new line
224: set +u

and got the same error with files in line 332, added "set +u" and sucsynct is now running.

It seems, that bash has changed it's default persormance to checking if variables are set before expanding bracket-expressions. My hack does the job for now, but sucsynct will no longer quit!

Hello, thank you for posting this bug and your workaround!

A couple of things seem to have changed in a positive way in more current distribution
releases that affect using the sucsynct script. Though, I don't have the time to update
the bash script, unfortunately. It should be much easier now:

A nice thing is that shipping these easybashgui includes with sucsynct doesn't seem to be
necessary anymore, as is shipping the functionality
now. And it now also includes yad support, providing a good way out of the
gnome 3 zenity regressions.

To make patches and experimenting as straight forward as possible, I'll add you to the group.
