Description Alexander Ovcharenko 2009-07-01 20:39:52 UTC
Description of problem:
When I start gnomecatalog it creates the file /tmp/tmp_gnomecatalog_icon.png and it doesn't delete this file after exit. If other user starts gnomecatalog later it doesn't show catalog because unable to delete file. But if I delete this file manually, every user can start gnomecatalog and catalog is shown.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnomecatalog-0.3.4.2-1.fc11

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnomecatalog
2. Add a new disk to the catalog
3. Save the catalog as file to the shared directory
4. Close gnomecatalog
5. Start gnomecatalog as another user
6. Try to open saved catalog. The catalog isn't shown
7. After exit you will see error in logs
  
Additional info:
Traceback (most recent call last):

    open('/tmp/tmp_gnomecatalog_icon.png', 'wb').write(icon)

Comment 1 Marc Wiriadisastra 2009-07-01 23:33:39 UTC
I would think this is a permission issue as the other user doesn't have permission to open someone else's file. 

Have you tried doing the following.

chmod 777 yourgnomecatalog.catalog

which should give permission for everyone to use that file and then try opening it by that other user.

No. As I wrote above "if I delete this file (/tmp/tmp_gnomecatalog_icon.png) manually, every user can start gnomecatalog and the catalog is shown"

My catalog file "gnomeCatalog.db" has following permissions -rw-rw-r-- and the file is located in shared directory.

I tried "chmod 777 gnomeCatalog.db" but nothing changed.
