Bugfix for package `synapse`

Do you have sometimes crashes of Synapse? This should be gone now...

Updated package in "Debian Own"

  • synapse

synapse crashes when "autostarted" after login. This bug is reported in the issues #1523279 and #1514104. The comments contains a solution which works fine. Because the official debian packages are still unfixed, I patched my own backport.

Used work-around: the file synapse.desktop has an entry Exec=synapse which must be changed to Exec=bash -c 'GTK_IM_MODULE="" synapse'.

Update 23.2.2016

This fix seems *not to solve the problem. I still have some rare startups, where Synapse ins't started after the login. I hope I can find a solution...
