How to open a kexi file?

Wed Jan 30, 2019 11:03 am
Hello

Hello, I made a copy of a kexi database and I can not open it.
It's the same for the original base.
I can only open projects when I'm only in the "welcome" menu
How to open a copy or other *.kexi file?

2nd question
how to remove old projects become useless from the menu "welcome"

Regards

Lubuntu 18.10 - 64 bit Kexi 3.1.0

Hi,
Glad it's fixed in 3.2 too:
"Fix detection of .kexi file types after recent change of MIME database for SQLite type (2018-06-17) "

https://community.kde.org/Kexi/Releases ... es_in_KEXI

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=396999

Are you able to install the beta already?

I have added two workarounds too for users of KEXI older than 3.2 Beta:

Build instructions are at https://community.kde.org/Kexi/Building (KEXI 3). It's incomplete and can be a bit outdated.

We're also working on KEXI universal packages for Linux: https://binary-factory.kde.org/job/Kexi_flatpak/

I am not able to understand all the subtleties and arcana of the binary contruction from sources. It's a bit new to me and I can not speak English very well. I am sorry.
I will look again but I do not have much time.
When do you think version 3.2 will be available in repositories?

3.2 sources would be available in February if we do not encounter a bug that needs more time for fixing.

Speed up updating varies from distribution to distribution and also version. It can be week or more, but LTSes can even refuse to update. In this case update the OS first. Please be in contact with them.
What's your distribution?

]Hello
I found a method and I proceed this way:
I create a symbolic link on the desktop this way:
Code: Select all
ln -s /home/xyz/.local/share/kexi/recent_projects/mabase.kexis /home/yxz/Desktop/mabase.kexis

and after I can open mabase.kexi by clicking on the shortcut that is on the desktop.
