I was trying to use Pastebinit but I don't get a correct URL output, should I file a bug on this?

[user@localhost ~]$ pastebinit pkr.c

It did work with Ubuntu's pastebin

[user@localhost ~]$ pastebinit -b pkr.c

I tried aupplying the pastebin manually

pastebinit -b pkr.c
Unknown website, please post a bugreport to request this pastebin to be added (

Thanks in advance

If you think you have used the command correctly (verify using man pastebinit ) and the result doesn't seem right, of course, file a bug.

It would be helpful to post your command so that someone can check whether it should work...

Hi, This is how I use it, your mileage can vary...

script /tmp/dummy.txt
do things
pastebin /tmp/dummy.txt
Uploading (2.9KiB)...

Works OK on Fedora 27,

Cheers, Casep

Did you mean to redirect output to the text file? as in script > /tmp/dummy/txt

Sorry, I've just realised you're using pastebinit, not pastebin (pastebin is deployed with a default Fedora install, I needed to install pastebinit). Have you tried using pastebin instead of pastebinit? Looks like pastebinit has some communication/authentication issues with the default servers (about script, no, it is not a redirect, that's the way that command works) Cheers

Looking at some of the issues reported with pastebinit ( ) there are some issues with the configurations deployed with pastebinit. As pastebin is installed and working with FEdora looks like it's worth using it. Cheers

I've had this problem with Fedora28.

The solution is to add the xml file to your root directory for your user and add one of the authorized pastes to it.

Caveat: back when the man pages were written most of the internet wasn't using https, this information is left out of the authorized list of bins.

When editing the config file, make sure the url is in https and not http

From t hat point on when you use pastebinit it will work.
