Residual Configuration After McFly Update May Cause Errors
April 5, 2023
In our recent update to McFly, we deprecated a default setting to override the
Ctrl-R with McFly by removing
/etc/profile.d/mcfly.bash from the package.
However, as this file was registered as a configuration file (
will not be removed automatically. With this residual configuration, you may
encounter the following error while starting a shell session:
error: a value is required for '--append-to-histfile <HISTFILE>' but none was supplied For more information, try '--help'.
You may resolve this issue by removing the residual file with the following command:
sudo rm -v /etc/profile.d/mcfly.bash
After which, restart your shell or terminal, and the above error should no longer occur.
