Whenever I try to start firefox, it crashes after going to any website with a core dump. With gdb, I obtained this:
(firefox:7395): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: No GSettings schemas are installed on the system Program received signal SIGTRAP, Trace/breakpoint trap. 0x00007ffff0c5aa27 in g_logv () from /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0
I've tried to recompile schemas with
but it hasn't helped. I've also tried reinstalling glib, glib2 and firefox, also to no avail.
It appears that it might be permssions-related, since I can run it with gksudo just fine. Any ideas?
I dont know exactly what the problem is, but you can probably fix it by installing (better: downgrading from testing/libx11) extra/libx11.
At least I could when I ran into the same problem.
I can't test at the moment, but I see that the -2 release of libx11 removed the shell scripts that set a few environment variables. I wonder if adding the contents of:
to a script in /etc/profile.d would solve the problem. Does this qualify as bug in the libx11 package?
I've come back, and tested it on my arch machine. Running the xorg.sh script allows firefox to work normally.
