Thanks viking and zerozero. I've referred to this thread numerous times to sort out some issues I'd run into, so it's only fair to give back when I can - that's the open source philosophy in a nutshell, isn't it? :)

Xorg
Is there a schedule for xorg releases? I mistakenly updated xorg and now have trouble with flash. It crashes 3 out of 4 times.
Can I go back a version?

Chipshotz,
we were here talking about flash/xserver/crashes, see if any of those tricks work for you;
just for your info, i can't still do fullscreen vid in FF atm (just open Opera if i have to), but in all the rest flash is fine here;

anyway, there's one strange thing:

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-core
xserver-xorg-core:
  Installed: 2:1.11.2.901-1
  Candidate: 2:1.11.2.901-1
  Version table:

        500 http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
you already update xserver, why not do it to the last available v.?

There is another breakage, at least in my machine. Nautilus commands doesn't works. I run "nautilus" in gnome-terminal, y it gives me:

I've reported this error on the Spanish forum too (because I'm Spanish. I'm supporting a copy from this thread in the other forum, for people who can't understand english). [THIS ONE IS SOLVED] (I've try it again today, and no problem, but neither yesterday nor the day before was running)

And there is another change, letter's colours of the Desktop, has changed to dark grey, and people (like me) who use a dark background, may have the visibility difficulted.

I've been looking in the internet, but it seems to be new (no matches at google...)

Now, i'm busy, but i'll keep looking for a solution.

You're correct, but how did you get this info from my post?

also, how do update to the last available v.? I've looked through Synaptic and see nothing.

Thank you!

Chipshotz,
i didn't get that info from your post, that apt-cache policy was from my system and didn't match the last v. available in your system:
you:
xserver-xorg-core (2:1.10.4-1) to 2:1.11.1.901-2
me:
xserver-xorg-core:
Installed: 2:1.11.2.901-1
Candidate: 2:1.11.2.901-1
it's not a major v. difference, but...

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
gives you what?

Aahhhh - the 2:1.11.2.901-1 is what I missed. What I clearly see is my eyes aren't what they once were. :cry:

Looking through History I did find a later update with the 2:1.11.2.901-1 ver. of xserver-xorg-core.
Chromiun hangs the system completely and although Flash in Opera hangs I can get out of it. I'll reinstall Flash again.

I went through my system and removed every libflashplayer.so. Went to Synaptic and installed flashplayer-mozilla. So far it's working in Iceweasel, Opera and Chromium without a crash. Full screen also worked in Iceweasel.

Thanks for your help zerozero.

ceykooo wrote:A recent update of gir1.2-glib-2.0 to 1.31.0-2 (and/or maybe gjs 1.29 to 1.30) broke the Alt-F2 run command prompt in gnome-shell. Any command you try to run to execute something in your path results in a "Command not found" error. See the referenced bugs: 656054 & 816762. The interface to gjs has changed, but gnome-shell has not been updated to use the new interface. We can fix this by manually applying these two patches to gnome-shell: 1 & 2

We just need to get rid of "argc" in a few places, and make a copy of the original for good measure:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/misc
sudo mv util.js util.js.pkg-orig
sudo bash -c 'sed "s/argc, //" util.js.pkg-orig > util.js'
Don't forget to restart gnome-shell after to apply the changes. Execute "r" in Alt-F2.

This is one of the times when I like gnome 3. Just editing javascript is so much more convenient than recompiling.
Following the above broke my Gnome 3. When I did Alt-F2 "r", it killed gnome-shell and took me back to GDM login. Fortunately, Ctrl-Alt F1 logging in a root and

Code: Select all

# mv util.js util.js.fixed_not
# cp util.js.pkg-orig util.js 
Reverted it back to where I can use Gnome 3 now.

I think perhaps I will wait until it is fixed with an update.

I installed "gmrun" and bound it to Alt-F3 and am using it as an Alt-F2 replacement (it has much better command line completion and shows a list of possible items to select when there are several) and tells you when it is unique. Much better than Alt-F2 anyway.

Thanks for that narnie.

LIke yourself the update also broke the run dialog for me, and ceykoo's fix didn't work either (although it didn't stop "Alt/F2 r" from working in my case).

As you say probably best to wait for a fix to arrive.

Re the problem above, I just found my own fix. It is not any different from ceykoo's solution except it is done manually. My run dialog now works again. So open a terminal and do:

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/misc/util.js
Then Ctl/f and search for argc. There are only three instances so it doesn't take long. Manually delete argc, from those three places and it now works.

narnie is right though, gmrun bound to Alt/F3 is actually a better run dialog except it doesn't understand the 'r' command so it can't restart gnome-shell with that shortcut.

Today gnucash failed to start, instead it was giving me this:

Code: Select all

$ gnucash
gnc.bin-Message: main: binreloc relocation support was disabled at configure time.

**
gnc.gui:ERROR:gnc-icons.c:74:gnc_add_stock_icon_pair: assertion failed: (pixbuf1 && pixbuf2)
Aborted
I managed to make it work again by making a symlink (solution found from an IRC discussion):

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/lib /usr/lib32
I also filed a bug report to Debian.

I'm just curious, if you still have the original file, what the lines with `argc` on them actually looked like. I'm guessing maybe there is a slight differentiation in spacing that my fragile sed replacement wouldn't work on, but would like to see. Thanks!

Sorry, but I deleted the original file although I remember when I looked at it thinking "I can't see what the difference is here" (between your sed script and manual removal).
