Hi, i have ubuntu 10.10 32bits, and i have installed 0.35. Today I tryed to update to 0.37 and it was not possible, because when I removed the 0.35, via software centerm synaptic or teminal it (in the terminal) gave me a message telling me that it was not possible to completly remove it due to usr/sbin and usr/local are not empty. I install 0.37 any way, but when I run it, in the terminal, show me a message telling something like usr/bin/eve (?) such directory or file does not exist (I am not shore about this last message in the terminal, sorry). I downgraded to 0.35 and all is working well. But I would like to keep up with the new releases, and with this problem will not be possible. I am still new in this (amazing) world of Linux and Ubuntu, so I must be doing something wrong. I will appreciate any help in this matter. Keep up the good work! It is a good app, works well and does exactly what was proposed to do. Thanks, Miguel Fonseca (from Portugal)

    About the removing - just:

    sudo rm -r /usr/share/gsharkdown

    and then you can install the new version:

    sudo dpkg -i gsharkdown_0.3.7-all.deb

    same issue here. I did what you said and it didn't work. konsole keeps getting the message "/usr/bin/env: python2: No such file or directory" and when I downgrade to 0.3.5 it works fine. please help, I want to upgrade and keep using this amazing app.

    I just got it :) a quick fix for you would be:

    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2.6 /usr/bin/python2
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/python2

    (Just change python2.6 with the version of python you have installed on your system, but no python3!)

    I will fix that problem wright away.

    Sorry for your trubles, but I was confused by the first bug report.

    Hi Vladimir, I am sorry for my ignorance, but with this new deb, I have to unistall first the 0.35 and then install the new 0.37 deb. Or can I just install the 0.37 version over the 0.35 and it will assume the upgrade? And with this last deb, this:

    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2.6 /usr/bin/python2

    1. or sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/python2

    is still necessary?

    Tanks for your help and pacience.
