Description Ștefan Talpalaru 2022-08-18 10:05:32 UTC
At some point, the package was silently switched to a Python3 compatible fork that changed the bookmark format from Pickle to JSON: - this apparently deleted the Pickle file after converting it to JSON.

Recently, it was switched back to the original upstream that knows nothing about JSON bookmarks:

Now all bookmarks are gone from the program's interface, but they're still on disk, at "~/.local/share/mcomix/bookmarks.json", being completely ignored by this new mcomix version, which creates its own, empty, "bookmarks.pickle" file instead.

Reproducible: Always
