[SOLVED] Can't apply emblem to folders

Post by JerryF » Sat Sep 22, 2018 3:21 pm

Hello all,

I've been able to do this before in 18.3 Cinnamon. I now have 19 Xfce.

I'm trying to apply an emblem to a folder in my /home/jerry directory.

I've got the default permissions on subfolders:

Code: Select all

$ stat -c '%a %A %U %G %n' *
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Desktop
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Documents
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Downloads
700 drwx------ jerry jerry Dropbox
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry ISOs
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Music
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Openshot Projects
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry PDFs
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Pictures

755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Videos
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry VirtualBox VMs
755 drwxr-xr-x jerry jerry Windows TTF Fonts
.
When I try to select any emblem, a check mark appears just for an instant, then disappears. The check mark seems to get rejected.

I can deny this being an issue here both on Mint 19 Xfce and Mint 19 Cinnamon. The usual check as to you having got non-user owned (dot-) files and/or directories in your home directory is likely in order:

Code: Select all

sudo find ~/ ! -user $(whoami)
You will likely find ~/.cache/dconf/user root-owned but that should not in fact be the issue here. If there's anything dire looking,

Code: Select all

chown -R $(whoami): ~/
[EDIT] I originally left out the "-R" for chown.

Thanks so much rene! That fixed it.

Here was the result of sudo find ~/ ! -user $(whoami)

Code: Select all

$ sudo find ~/ ! -user $(whoami)

Well, no, in fact and moreover,. it seems you shouldn't have a ~/.gvfs directory at all; I haven't on Mint 19 Xfce nor Cinnamon, both while and while not employing GVFS to, say, mount a Windows share through the file manager.

The message you get betrays your ~/.gvfs to be a FUSE mountpoint; if you type mount you will probably see /dev/fuse or explicitly gvfsd-fuse being mounted there, but if all's well you should also see it mounted on /run/user/$(id -u)/gvfs; the latter is where it resides normally. I wonder what happens if you do the following:

1. Unmount all GVFS mounts, i.e., use every eject button in the left pane of your file manager (which may certainly immediately after reboot be none).
2. Log out
3. Switch to a virtual console with Ctrl-Alt-F1
4. Log in as "jerry".
5. sudo umount ~/.gvfs
6. sudo rm -r ~/.gvfs
7. sudo systemctl reboot

If you can at 5 not unmount you may need to do this from freshly booted state, without "jerry" having logged in graphically even once. The expectation is that ~/.gvfs will not return after reboot even after again utilizing GVFS, or that if it does it'll now be user-owned. If it returns still root-owned, I'd repeat the above with 6 replaced by sudo chown -R jerry: ~/.gvfs.

Note that I'm basically just interested in the sense of seeing a GVFS FUSE mount appearing in your home directory which I'm not able to reproduce, but there's no significant problem left...

Hi rene. Hmmm. That's very surprising to hear because every install that I've had of 18.x and 19, my /home/jerry has had a .gvfs because I've had to contend with .gvfs when backing up with Grsync.

This is what I found from mount (only the ones concerning /def/fuse and gvfs):

Code: Select all

/dev/fuse on /run/user/1000/doc type fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=1000,group_id=1000)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw,relatime)
gvfsd-fuse on /home/jerry/.gvfs type fuse.gvfsd-fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0)
gvfsd-fuse on /run/user/1000/gvfs type fuse.gvfsd-fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=1000,group_id=1000)

That seems to be saying that your Mint 19 install was not a new but an upgraded install as that message seems to come from/via /etc/update-motd.d/91-release-upgrade; "91" a potentially other number. Seeing as how it's just attempting to get you a m(essage) o(f) t(he) d(ay) certainly the easiest fix would appear to be sudo chmod -x /etc/update-motd.d/91-release-upgrade, clearly once again with the correct "91" substituted.

If interested there's some information at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1771914 but the original "problem" of you having a dual-mount of gvfsd-fuse is likely also a result of upgrading rather than installing new. Given the amount of problems we on this forum see with through major versions upgraded installs I am rather tempted to find only at major versions newly installed systems to be supportable.

That said... even without the chmod -x I would suppose it did actually still log you in? Certainly will with, so pick things up from there I suppose. Or reinstall 19 new so as to keep yourself from running into a yet unknown number of similar problems in the near future.

Unfortunately, my 19 isn't an upgrade. I had tried to do one from 18.3 Cinnamon to 19 Cinnamon, but that failed. I then decided to installed 19 Xfce, which is what I have now.

I will try your #1 through 7 again.

Well rene, strangely enough I have that exact file. /etc/update-motd.d/91-release-upgrade. But I know I did a fresh install of 19 Xfce because I nuked my hard drive so that I could repartition it a different way.

I did sudo chmod -x /etc/update-motd.d/91-release-upgrade, then redid your steps 1 - 7.

All went fine. No warning. I no longer have a .gvfs. As an FYI, at #5 (sudo umount ~/.gvfs) it said it wasn't mounted.

Thank you so much!

It is installed by update-manager which I believe I'm finding could be standard on the MATE edition, but it's not installed on my 19 Xfce nor Cinnamon editions. Oh well, it's no doubt pulled in via some obscure python-apt dependency on your system; it doesn't really matter.

Being rid of ~/.gvfs seems a good thing.

If I'm not mistaken, there was a recent thread on the Xfce community support forum about using custom folder icons. Not the same thing as the "emblems," but possibly even more useful. This has been a thing that Xfce had heretofore lacked, and it might be why a lot of people started using emblems in the first place (although I realize that "a lot of" people are certainly not "all" people :lol: ).
