[SOLVED][bug?] AddOn manager fails to initialise, 0.21 daily build on ubuntu ppa

Post by Videonauth »

Since about two days after updating the freecad-daily package from the Ubuntu ppa the addon manager fails to initialize, see log below.

Code: Select all

10:51:21  Please look into the log file for further information
Not sure what is wrong there and how to fix it, so i ask here before posting to github issue tracker.

It's a bug but not in FreeCAD in that the change made works perfectly fine with markdown version 3.3.7 and I'm guessing any version other than 3.3.5 https://github.com/Python-Markdown/markdown/issues/1203

To prove which version you are using enter the following in the FreeCAD Python Console:

Code: Select all

import markdown
markdown.__version__
If you can upgrade to 3.3.7 then I cannot see a reason at present not to.

This as well results in an error on trying to import it, probably means this dependency did not get installed?

Code: Select all

import markdown
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<input>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/michael/.local/share/FreeCAD/AdditionalPythonPackages/markdown/__init__.py", line 29, in <module>

Sorry I wasn't thinking, it is definitely installed as the you would receive a completely different error message IMHO. So best to just upgrade, in my case I used pip on my Windows box and it went straight to 3.3.7.

Installing 3.3.7 systemwide did solve the error message for me, but that would mean i have to add to the bug report i just did a moment ago on github, means the markdown file getting used for building the daily is somehow outdated it seems.

LIsting with pip it did not show markdown in any way, however now it does, and FreeCAD is back to working and having an addon manager as well.

What needs adding to FC's code IMHO is a version check against existing markdown installation, my Linux partition had 2.6.9 which worked fine also, it's just that specific 3.3.5 that's faulty.

Thank you very much for helping out here and putting me on the right track to solve it. Should I mark this topic as solved? and yes must be something very weird as i had system wide no markdown installed so it only existed within the FreeCAD user folder which gets filled on install of the python modules for FreeCAD. The problem appeared about two days ago, the version before which was 0.20 was working fine with them. so maybe something has been changed which now needs the newer version of markdown.
