Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: m-puzirew on 2013/07/01, 02:16:10
01 July, update of package above completed with an error. After restart my xfce settings (wallpaper, fonts,panels configuration etc) was lost. I had to restore the system from Clonezilla backup. Be careful.
Can the package be safely removed at all?

Hi,
Pease take a look at siduction-settings-kde install error topic.
It was the same error ( I mean in configure state ) ?
If so almost sure at least one line from /etc/passwd doesn't have 7 fields separated by (:) or you have an empty line at the end of /etc/passwd.
Please fix it and reinstall siduction-settings-xfce.
Thank you.

Thanks, convbsd. I checked my etc/passwd and removed the empty line. But it didn't help (Maybe, because my system is configured to use sudo way  instead of su?). Postinstall script still having a permission problem. Will try on. But, regarding that all, do you think removing the package is the simpliest way? Is it safe?

Hi,
Do you have on any line from /etc/passwd field separator : six times ?
Thank you.

Hi,
/etc/passwd seems to be ok.
As you say it might be also another problem because you say that you have removed the empty line.
Against what siduction release have you done a d-u ?
Thank you.
Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: m-puzirew on 2013/07/01, 16:47:15
riders on the storm. Actually, I don't use d-u, normally I use Synaptic for extra clarity what packages are to upgrade etc. My current version of siduction-settings-xfce is 2013.06.20
P.S. Gonna make newer Clonezilla backup to play around with the update to gather more info.

Here is upgrade output with approximate translation of Russian parts in square brackets. Maybe it will help.

P.S. gvfs related lines are most suspicious, IMHO (but I'm not an IT specialist).

Hi
I will investigate the problem and I will try to fix it.
A question please /home/max/.gvfs is chown argument ?
It should be /home/max .
User max is in max group ?
Thank you
Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: m-puzirew on 2013/07/01, 18:23:00
Your questions are a bit above my skills. Please give me some hints (comandlines etc) to answer more correctly and more quickly. Thanks.
P.S. Oddly enough, user "Max Puzirew" is NOT in max group now, according to standard gnome "users and groups" utility.

Hi
"chown: невозможно получить доступ к" means
chown /home/max/.gvfs ?
What output has  ls -l /home/max ?
Thank you
Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: m-puzirew on 2013/07/01, 18:54:00
"chown: невозможно получить доступ к «/home/max/.gvfs»" means literally "chown:impossible to get access to «/home/max/.gvfs»"

Nothing unusual, IMHO. Don't pay attention to some garbage files.
Hmm, should I change the attributes of .gvfs folder? They are dr-x------ (500 in hex)

I don't know why it fails there.
Maybe it's synaptic fault.
Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: m-puzirew on 2013/07/01, 19:52:45
So, I will try "do and see what happens" method several times :) If unsuccessfull, maybe I will have to remove the package or keep the old version for a while.
Thank you very much, convbsd!
Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: convbsd on 2013/07/01, 20:05:24
Please keep old version.
It seems that I must change something in kde and xfce settings.
Thank you.

Ouch. It's interesting - I don't see any /home/max/.gvfs folder in
Double Commander as root but I can see it in Thunar (both as root and as user). Really weird... :shock:
Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: michaa7 on 2013/07/01, 23:06:28
In Thunar "show hidden files" is activated, in Double Commander not.
Title: new sidiction-settings-xfce package seems to be broken
Post by: m-puzirew on 2013/07/01, 23:28:26
:lol: You took me for someone else. I know what hidden files are and how to set Double Commander to show them. Anyway, thank you for helping healthy laughter!
But seriously, this might be a new Double commander beta bug. If so, It is strange that the bug proved itself with that "enigmatic" folder, as if on cue.
P.S. Most likely, it's because of the fact that .gvfs is not a common folder, but represents a virtual filesystem. Now I can't remember the reason why I had installed it, maybe to handle with a cloud storage or something. Hmm, I need to deal with this...

As an experiment, after deleting gvfs-fuse and gvfs-bin the siduction-settings-xfce package installation showed no error, but user settings was lost on reboot again all the same. This perhaps proves that siduction-settings-xfce package is indeed broken and have to be changed.

I have taked a look at it and it will be ok.

Hello m-puzirew,

you don't need to translate messages manually. To produce english output you can prepend any command with an assignment ,e.g.
Code: [Select]
# LC_ALL=C apt-mark hold  siduction-settings-kde
siduction-settings-kde set on hold.

I hope this saves you some time.

Hi,

I may be late to the party, but I ran into the same problem with .gvfs lately, with the update to lxde-settings.
From what I gathered on the Internet, it's because .gvfs is a fuse mount mounted by the user, and fuse mounts cannot be touched by other users, be it root. I could work around it by first unmounting .gvfs (with no bad effect at least until now) running
Code: [Select]

sudo umount ~/.gvfs

and then proceeded successfully to the update.

Hope this helps.
Yoann.

Thanks, musca, this may be helpful when in terminal!
LeYanude, thank you too, I'll take your advice into consideration.
