Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

the popup notifications in the lower right corner are stucked, they are unable to disappear. clicking on the 'hide' or 'hide all' button doesnt help.

(and it covers my KDE kicker)

tryed with xfce4, the result was the same.


are there anyone who uses azureus, works 100% fine?

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

Same problem here... Haven't gotten any popups in openbox (yet), but it froze in gnome.

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

Did you guys install it from pacman??? If so, try downloading it and running it from a folder that you have write permissions to, otherwise it wont be able to update itself and all that fancy jazz. (hence the strange behaviour of the pop up window things, i think).

When i used azureus i had it working 100% fine. I haven't used it for months though (i discovered the joys of screen + rtorrent).

Good luck!

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

The same thing happens on Fedora and with the binary provied by the Azureus people (tested on Ubuntu). So it's not an Arch specific problem.

edit:
Just tested with Gentoo, it has this issue as well.

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

Same here..

I think it might be related to the java binaries themselves, because I've killed Azureus and the popups stick. According to ps x, the only app running then is the java binary.

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

To kill Azureus,  you have to kill its java instance (/usr/bin/azureus is just a wrapper script).

Anyway, the problem is quite annoying - it's worth noting that it's the same with Azureus' CVS snapshots.

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

I would just use the menu, and do "Restart Azureus...", killing the process might not write some recently dled data for the torrents?  I know that's happened to me in rtorrent once.

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

This ain't possible if you set 'minimize A. to tray after start' and then that hideous popup covers all the tray ;-)

Killing a process without passing a flag is merely asking it to finish gracefully so I see no problem here - yet A. has that annoying "feature" of showing that useless popup if closed e.g. by KDE shutdown, not sure why (I wish I could change what's executed when shutting down KDE, didn't find any relevant info about that though - still, that popup doesn't show up after "killall azureus; killall java", so I guess it considers it a tidily shutdown).

ps. Is that possibly a Vivi or some other black mage in your avatar, codemac?

Is there some way to just disable that popup?

yup, Vivi.

And I understand what you are saying about kill, I'm just paranoid.

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

This is also happening with a native bytecode compiled Azureus (GCJ 4.1, Azureus 2.4.0.2). To me, it seems like an actual bug in Azureus, I will compile a daily snapshot and edit this post to report my findings.

edit: nope, happens with the daily version too.. both with gcj and sun java still... Interesting bug..

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

Remove .azureus/logs/* and you can start it without annoying pop-ups. Works fine for me...

Have you checked/reported this on the Azureus bug tracker?  It'd be nice if we could contribute to other people's projects as well as Arch tongue

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

It now works properly here. While I'm using a beta version, I guess it had more to do with other Arch upgrades (xorg?).

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

I had the same problems with Arch Azureus.
Just download Azureus from it's website and extract it to your home dir. It'll run fine.

Dude, I was using azureus for ages until I discovered Transmission (via this forum), it's sooooo much faster.  You should install and try, it's the muts !

It's available thru the community repo via pacman.

Re: Azureus -- the popup notifications are frozen

Yes, my friends advised me transmission too, but I haven't tried it yet.
I am going to try it now, when I get home smile
