OS Type: 64-bit
GNOME Version: 42.5
Widowing System: Wayland
  • Same with zotero 7.0.0-beta.5, either with the classic dialog or the default dialog
  • No window opens with 7.0.0-beta.7. (but an error message pops up if Zotero is not running)
  • Yup, just wanted to report the same problem (Kubuntu 23.04, Plasma 5.27.4.) - the beta is running but nothing happens when clicking any Zotero icon in the LO toolbar.
  • Our window-moving code hasn't yet been updated for Wayland, so window focusing won't work yet under Wayland.
    No window opens with 7.0.0-beta.7
    That's actually just unrelated breakage. Fixed in the latest beta — thanks.

    Works again. Thank you.
    [...] so window focusing won't work yet under Wayland
    I understand.
