XType was working fine, but now appears to be not installed. I tried reinstalling, following the steps I used previously (download, unzip, then in a terminal ‘bash 1install.sh’), but the settings still show both Xmodules as ‘Not Installed’.
I think it’s my fault, but I’d appreciate any tips on what to investigate. So far I’ve realised that the executables are not copied into ‘~/.mozilla/native-messaging-hosts’, but stay in whatever location the downloaded file was unzipped to. I must have deleted that directory during a clean up. The new download has been moved to a less temporary location, and the install performed from there. The JSON files appear to point to the correct directory, but I still get ‘Not installed’ reported when I check the Kantu settings.
