Bug Description

Binary package hint: semantik

I installed semantik from hardy repositories but I cannot start it, looks like that the executable file doesn't exist:

kurppa@lanka:~$ apt-cache policy semantik
semantik:
  Asennettu: 0.6.5-0ubuntu1
  Ehdokas: 0.6.5-0ubuntu1
  Versiotaulukko:
 *** 0.6.5-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://fi.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/universe Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
kurppa@lanka:~$ semantik
bash: semantik: command not found
kurppa@lanka:~$ locate semantik
/usr/share/app-install/desktop/semantik.desktop
kurppa@lanka:~$

I managed to build a working version using patch from http://ppa.launchpad.net/jdavies/ubuntu/pool/main/s/semantik/
there's .deb I made as an attachment, tho it lags dependencies in package, but it is tested to work with kde4 installation.

I have tried to install this both from the repository and from the link above. neither has worked. for me. currently I have the package linked above installed (or not) on my system. this is the output from locate:

I can confirm that this problem persists on Ubuntu Hardy 8.04.1 64-bit Desktop.

@Petri, please, how do I do the same for X86_64 ? (or could you do it?:)

Ok, I just tried the top link (the patch) on Hardy 8.04.1 X86_64 (using dpkg -i --force-architecture) (semantic still wasn't working), then installed the package semantik (through Synaptic) over it, and it works. Weird, but good.

confirmed on Kubuntu Hardy 32bit / KDE3 & KDE4:
The binary is in a weird location:
/usr/lib/kde4/bin/semantik

Additionally, the KDE-start-menu entry for it (Office > Semantik) has *no* value for "command" set, probably the main cause why it can't be started from the menu. ;)
Running "/usr/lib/kde4/bin/semantik" directly from the commandline starts semantik properly.

Something else: How come that mindmapping tools are not put into the same menu category? (e.g. kdissert is in "utilities" whereas semantik is in "office")
