idemake.cfg not found if accute in file path
« on: May 09, 2019, 02:39:07 am »
With lazarus 2.0.0 RC3 and below all was working fine whwn rebuilding IDE after adding package

with 2.0.0 finale and 2.0.2 install goes well and IDE opens, but if i add a package and try to rebuild IDE i get

C:\Users\RÙgent\AppData\Local\lazarus\idemake.cfg is missing

it should be:
C:\Users\Régent\AppData\Local\lazarus\idemake.cfg

If i un-install all and re-install 2.0.0 RC3 all is working again when i rebuild

Hi Regent,
I can confirm similar behavior, except, with mine, it removes all of the slashes from the directory path! :(
It worked in 2.0, but 2.0.2 does not work. 
I get: 
Fatal: Unable to open file C:UserskhowardAppDataLocallazarusidemake.cfg -dx86_64
If you should find a solution, I'm most interested.I'll let you know if I learn anything as well.
Thanks!
Keith

it should be:
C:\Users\Régent\AppData\Local\lazarus\idemake.cfg
It looks you have a special character in your path, this (can) make troubles.
regards
Andreas

Hi Andreas,
As Regent and myself pointed out, though, it used to work in an earlier version.I suppose we are looking for confirmation and, perhaps if enough other people experience this, file a bug report.My situation is really weird though.....no directory slashes for some reason.I installed Laz 2.0.2 on a spare laptop and I can rebuild the IDE....no problem.I don't know what the difference could be.
Thanks.
Keith

Hi, I'm a beginner in Lazarus and I have a problem starting with version 2.0.2. If I try to install a new component I receive the following error message:
Build IDE: Exit code 2, Errors: 1, Warnings: 1
Warning: svn not in path.
Fatal: Unable to open file C: LazarusConfigidemake.cfg -di386
The real parh is
  C: \ LazarusConfig \ idemake.cfg -di386
I use windows 8.1 and Lazarus 2.0 works well. Lazarus 2.0.2 and 2.0.4 displays the above error.
Do you have any answers?

Problems with backslashes is typically something with non lazarus provided make/binutils/shellutils in the path. (e.g. mingw or cygwin).

Accents is a different matter, but could be related also.

The bug appears only on some systems. It seems there is a conflict with some tools in PATH.

Lazarus trunk and fixes now adds " quotes around idemake.cfg only if there are spaces.
