referencing Komodo IDE 9: Error compiling outline: unable to locate Go executable

This log suggests that the executable argument is empty in the _execute_child function in <komodo-root>/lib/mozilla/python/komodo/ I’ve not figured-out where executable is specified yet, but I can see that it is external to the _execute_child function in

Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to get golang code intelligence to work based on the problems above? Is there any more information I can provide to help diagnosis?

Could you verify that those paths exist?


yes, both paths are correct, and do exist:

  • The outline.exe path is a manually-created compilation of outline.go at the same location (because komodo doesn’t have permission to compile the outline.exe in that folder by default, so I did the compilation for it).
  • The cluster.go file is in my project dir, and was the file I had open in the editor.

I tell a lie. Just re-verifying that I discovered that the outline.exe that I manually compiled has magically disappeared. (I definitely put it there!) I’m guessing komodo has deleted it in it’s attempt to recompile on start-up - does it try to compile the outline.go every time the editor starts, rather than just when it has changed?

I’ve opened a bug for this issue here:

Looking at the code it seems as if it recompiles the executable on each use.
