Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439203
xfce-setting-show just exits
Last modified: 2008-03-28 13:32:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Many of the menu entries under Settings fail to actually do anything. If one
runs xfce-setting-show from the command line, it just returns instantly without
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% on this system -- haven't tried other machines.
xfce-setting-show should just return, it sends a message via xfce-mcs to the
xfce-mcs-manager to show the settings window with all the various sections.
I can't duplicate this here... it works just fine for me.
Are you sure this window isn't just appearing somewhere you aren't looking?
Do you have xfce-mcs-manager running?
Is there anything in ~/.xsession-errors ?
xfce-mcs-manager is running. Nothing in ~/.xsession-errors.
This is a new F9 beta install, although I did preserve /home. But it also
happens on a new test user, so it's not just cruft in my dotfiles.
What's the mechanism of communication between xfce-setting-show and
xfce-mcs-manager? Perhaps something is broken there.
selinux enabled? Anything in your /var/log/audit/audit.log?
How are you logging in? Is ConsoleKit running and 'ck-list-sessions' showing
How did you install Xfce? 'yum groupinstall XFCE' ? If you run that now does it
pull in any new packages that were not installed before?
Okay, so, after running yum upgrade this morning -- which upgraded *no* xfce
packages -- and rebooting, it works. *shrug*
Thanks for looking.
