Last modified: 2017-02-28 04:54:30 EST
Description of problem:
The maliit-keybaord-viewer is not executable by default. This is very odd for a x86-64 ELF file located in /bin .
Version-Release number of selected component:
maliit-plugins x86_64 0.94.2-6.fc23
Steps to Reproduce:
birch$ file /usr/bin/maliit-keyboard-viewer
/usr/bin/maliit-keyboard-viewer: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2, for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=cb1f526081f8f0cdf8eb863f875ef4c85f3fe2bd, not stripped
birch$ strace /usr/bin/maliit-keyboard-viewer
execve("/usr/bin/maliit-keyboard-viewer", ["/usr/bin/maliit-keyboard-viewer"], [/* 68 vars */]) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
write(2, "strace: exec: Permission denied\n", 32strace: exec: Permission denied
) = 32
exit_group(1) = ?
+++ exited with 1 +++
birch$ ls -l /usr/bin/maliit-keyboard-
ls: cannot access /usr/bin/maliit-keyboard-: No such file or directory

This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
