An update tries to replace /etc/gnome/defaults.list

Post by kmph » Wed Mar 08, 2017 3:40 pm

Running Update Manager and installing updates… And what do I see?
Replace configuration file '/etc/gnome/defaults.list'?

The configuration file /etc/gnome/defaults/list was modified (by you or by script). An updated version is shipped in this package. If you want to keep your current version say 'Keep'. Do you want to replace the current file and install the new package maintainers version?
Difference between the files:

From what I see this new content simply tries to replace these new and shiny x-apps shipped with Mint by Gnome’s defaults. SO I choose Keep. Hope I do the right thng?

I got this as well. Speaking for myself, I've always chosen Keep in situations like this on Linux Mint. I've never have had a problem as a result.

I just got this too. I chose "Keep".

I chose "Replace" and it did not seems to affect my system at all. That is probably because the file replaced is a system default, and my personal preferences (in /home) were not changed.

Ah, right. So that's the culprit then!

I chose "Replace" and got a very strange result.

Whenever I clicked on a folder in 'Places', instead of opening the folder, cinnamon tried to open the first file in that folder with VLC. VLC doesn't deal very well with web archives y'know. Been driving me up the wall that has.

Fortunately, the old defaults.list hadn't been deleted, just re-named to defaults.list.old. A quick rename and a cinnamon restart and everything worked fine.

I won't be making that mistake again. :lol:

You might have guessed that I've only been using linux for a few weeks. Ah the joys of a new OS.

Thank you for pointing me at the right file! :D

When I saw this pop up, I took a look at what it was saying and got the impression it was going to reset which application opens a file extension by default.

For instance, if I have set PDF files to open with Master PDF Editor, resetting the file would revert back to opening it with Okular.

No Linux expert, but I think that is what it is asking, so I chose Keep.

In this case I would definitely keep my current version - same with updates to Grub, Samba etc. both of which I have customized. Nice to know the old file isn't deleted if replaced though.

I had this exact question/message all of 15 minutes ago and already forgot what I chose.

:lol: I'll do one better. The Mint I'm running now gets all the new stuff that comes down the pipes, so I answered yes... but I'm not sure if that was the question.

Haha! :lol:

I searched the forums and found this thread before making my decision, because for once I thought I'd do some research...

So "Keep" it is! 8)

Thanks folks!

Had another look at that file since I made my comment and it is referring to applications in Gnome, but I am using KDE, so those apps are not even installed.

But after today's Grub update that also asked me a similar question ( to which I chose Replace, to my regret ), I will always be choosing Keep. If I have customized something, then I must have done it for a reason, so I want to keep whatever I did.

"Keep or replace?"
"YES!"

I choose 'Keep" on my two Mint machines. :)

You mean Mint is actually using that file? It's an outdated miscreation of GNOME for crying out loud! It shouldn't be used by anything else.
