Description (last modified by dos)

Hi!

I discovered that many applications that use gnome config are unable store and retrieve any settings. I traced the problem to the dbus (1.2.1) recipe that does not include the dbus-launch binary to the image. I compiled and install that file manually and it seems that it has resolve the issue. I have also inform the FSO for this problem as the FSO image have identical behavior.

Thank you!

Have you tried installing dbus-x11?

No but shouldn't that file been included in the default image in the first place?

Please do "opkg install dbus-x11" and check, if it's fixing this issue. If it's fixing, then I'll add dbus-x11 to image.

I could not test what you told me as at this time I am using FSO and it seems that it does not have that particular package in the repository. I can't re install SHR to test is as I need the phone with this configuration for a few days.
I have looked at package dbus-x11_1.2.1-r8_armv4t.opk from OM2008.8 repository and it contains the dbus-launch file so I am 99% sure that it will fix the problem.
I also find this bug report http://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/2109 that is relative with the issue. I think that was the reason dbus-launch was removed from the dbus package in the first place.

Sorry for the delay. Yes it does solve the problem if you install dbus-x11.

comment:8 Changed 8 years ago by spaetz

According to AInulindale and I agree with that, the correct solution is to have those packages that depend on dbus-launch to include the dependency to "dbus-x11" directly in the recipe rather than unconditionally adding it to the image.

Is there a specific (or several specific applications/recipes) that need dbus-launch? I'll add the dependency directly to them then. Otherwise we'll close this ticket in some time in the future. Hope that approach is ok to you, TDTwister

No answer for 2 weeks. Closing now, but if you want, please tell us, which packages should have dbus-x11 dependency.
