Ahem... This looks like completely unrelated error. Is there any chance that your theme is actually missing that icon? That would be good reason for crash, as gtk-missing-image is used as fallback image by pretty-much all GTK based apps.

Hmm I don't remember changing the theme since I last used AWN, but I'll experiment, thanks.

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

I've had no problem following the patch. The only settings I lost were applets - custom launchers all survived and things are ticking along nicely. No ill effects yet, so good job smile

That's funny, I defintely lost all of my settings. Appearance, location on screen, applets. It's curious that people are having myriad idiosyncratic experiences. Does anyone know where the settings are being saved now? As I noted above, it doesn't seem to be in /home/user/.config.

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

The only problem I've had is that the cairo menu won't start (which is my preferred menu) - it just repeatedly crashes. Since cairo has a built in places, and I observe the same behaviour with the standalone places applet, I assume they are related, but to be honest, I can live without it (it'sd only a case of muscle memory on my part) so I haven't really looked at trouble shooting it.

On my machine are all AWN settings saved to gconf, under /apps/avant-window-navigator, but libdesktop-agnostic has "keyfile fallback," which, I guess, is used when gconf is not available.

Launchers are always saved in ~/.config/awn/launchers and that's probably why they weren't lost along with rest of configuration.

Hmm, I lost launchers (if by that you mean applets). There's nothing saved in my launchers folder in ~/.config/awn/launchers and I can see that hte folder has not been modified for months.

It looks like (by looking around in gconf) that at least some settings are saved in /usr/share, including an applets list.

Anyway, it's working now. Thanks again for the patched libdesktop-agnostic in AUR.

Damn, I had a lot of work lately and had to pass on this. I haven't even updated for a month.
kozec: I haven't tried your patch yet, but I congratulate you on fixing it. I see you worked on the vala source. I was debugging the raw c code with GDB, which is I guess not the best idea (plus I don't know much about GObject).

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

Hi,

I was so annoyed by the recent awn crashes that I decided to fork and maintain it. The following are the forked repositories:

- https://github.com/p12tic/avant-window-navigator
- https://github.com/p12tic/libdesktop-agnostic

The patch that fixes current breakage has not been applied yet. I'm waiting for kozec to say how should I attribute the fixes to him.

I don't have much time to play with this project, thus I will only be able to ensure that critical bugs are fixed. Also, I'm not an Arch user unfortunately, thus I won't be able to directly test the fixes. Having said that, once awn works on my machine, it shouldn't take lots of effort, if any, to port it to different distributions.

All in all, I hope the project will be useful :-)

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

Would someone please be so kind as to post the .so files for the patched libdesktopagnostic or if there was a way to create a tar, zip or deb file from the output.  I don't know how to apply the patch in my ubuntu system and even building from git leaves me stuck with an error(python).  I'm running Ubuntu.  I love AWN and it just died.  I'd appreciate the help.  Thank you very much.

If awn-settings still doesn't work, please file a bug on AWN page on Launchpad, so that the report does not get lost.

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

@MSXManiac,

You should ask on LaunchPad and/or Ubuntu's forums. This forum is for Arch Linux support and it is not likely anybody here will know why it doesn't work for you with a completely different distro.

Read the post directly above yours - it tells you where to report bugs and that place is not here!

It works!!!.  Thanks so, so much.  I had to clear some older versions in /usr/local/lib.  Thanks so so much.  Especially since I'm getting help for an Ubuntu system in an Arch forum.  Its nice to get some love from y'all.  Once again @p12tic, I really appreciate your help.

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

AWN works also with libdesktop-agnostic-git. I stepped up as maintainer for the packages, we'll see how far we'll get. FWIW, AWN is again my default panel. Cheers!

PS: Switching the icon theme from Oxygen to Faenza solved my problem with awn-settings not showing.

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

Patch works, thanks.
I can't export settings, since AWM seems to ignore settings in gconf, I don't know how does this work. Since we got hit from libdesktop-agnostic, it might be a good idea to look into replacing this in awn with simple ini file, it would make life easier (I don't really see the point of gconf anyway).

Anyway, while we're patching, you might want this patch I made some time ago:

--- awn-build/src/awn-panel.c	2013-07-20 12:38:26.913094112 +0200

   awn_panel_reset_autohide (panel);
 
   position_window (panel);
+   awn_panel_set_expand_mode (panel, priv->expand);
 }
 
 /*

It causes the panel to properly change geometry when the screen is rotated (like with xrandr -o).

I had some weird issues with launchers, but rebuilding extras fixed this I think.

Gconf has one advantage - configuration changes are applied immediately and that makes scripting a lot easier. For example, i have script that repositions AWN every time when my 2ndary monitor is (dis)connected just by calling gconftool-2 -t integer -s "/apps/avant-window-navigator/panel/monitor_width" <screen size>"

But libdesktop-agnostic is not used only as configuration backend, AWN uses it to work with .desktop files and I seen even some calls for file and color management in source. So, replacing it is surely possible, but may be little problematic.

Re: [SOLVED] AWN died

SanskritFritz: I don't know. I have some repository there. Can you cut to the chase?

kozec: for me awn completely ignores what I do with gconf. Not immediately, not after a reboot even. I can have completely different values in gconf and awn's settings. I don't get this system and it's over-complication to me. Maybe I'm missing something or am really unlucky. In order to get the same settings on another computer I had to manually set everything in the GUI (except for the stuff that's saved in the theme). If I wanted such IPC in a program, I'd use dbus.
Desktop file parsing is in GIO, it's what agnostic uses.

Actually, gconf doesn't work for me at all, for anything. Dconf works.
