leftover scim processes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
After logging out, I see a number of scim-related process hang around (maybe
they die eventually, I didn't wait longer than ~2 minutes):
scim-launcher, scim-bridge and scim-helper-manager
I have seen this too sometimes in the past.
Do you have a systematic way to reproduce.
Was it after updating scim-bridge while running the desktop say?
Also could you list the processes that are left running, please?
I see scim-launcher and scim-bridge being left behind
Ok, the args to the scim-launcher process would be useful since there
are normally two running.
Do you see this after every desktop session? I don't know how to reproduce
One way to induce the lingering processes is the following:
1. login to desktop
2. start app supporting IM
3. activate IM with Ctrl-Space
4. quit X with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace
5. run "ps aux | grep scim" in console
and one sees scim-bridge and the scim-launcher socket processes still running.
"killall -9 scim-bridge" cleans them away.
I still see this with scim-bridge-0.4.8.
If scim-bridge is not installed there are no remaining scim processes.
I've applied a patch on the CVS latest.
Now it must shutdown itself in a half minute.
It still struggles to launch the panel process, but finally shutdowns itself in
Thank you! Should be in scim-bridge-0.4.9-1.fc7.
