and believe that unrtf also was installed at the same time.
I posted a query at open source projects europe – https://opensourceprojects.eu/p/recoll1/tickets/10/?page=0 . (And suggest that the curious visit this link, as it offers the gory troubleshooting details.) ‘Medoc’ traced the problem to unrtf, and showed me how to fix the problem by adding:
to .bashrc as sourced by ~/.bash-profile . Recoll in Tumbleweed now properly indexed the files in the test directory. ‘Medoc’ suspected an unrtf packaging issue. I thought I should post a message here. I am a new openSUSE Tumbleweed user, and believe that Bugzilla suggested that greenhorns like me post first to these forums.
