[S]Gnome Software app displaying [core] error (core.db mirror list)

Every time I start Gnome Software after reboot or some time it gives this error:

Sorry, something went wrong:
[core]: unexpected system error

The journal says this:

However, I can normally access core.db with Pacman. These are handpicked, https mirror links that work. I have ethernet connection.

Re: [S]Gnome Software app displaying [core] error (core.db mirror list)

I don't know what this is. Are you installing packages with packagekit?
pacman -Si packagekit
http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/tru … con.1.html

Are you auto starting it with gnome? And it's looking for package updates?

Turn it off or uninstall it. Update with pacman -Syu

Or is there something else here that you did not post?

Did a brief look, does gnome have a dependency on this?

Re: [S]Gnome Software app displaying [core] error (core.db mirror list)

Yes, I have packagekit installed. I installed some gnome apps this way, but I normally use pacman for everything.

It starts with Gnome by itself. I'd like to turn that off too. But all I searched in google got no results.

Also, when run as a root (sudo gnome-software), it gives segmentation fault (?!).

[ivan@ivan-linux ~]$ sudo gnome-software

Reinstalled, same happens.

Re: [S]Gnome Software app displaying [core] error (core.db mirror list)

The only thing that fixes this issue is preventing it to run during boot.

And the only way to do it is to copy the link to this dir:

cp /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-software* ~/.config/autostart

And add

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false

This not only prevents it to auto-start, but also fixes this issue. Next time you start it by yourself there will be no error.

I'm not sure but I think this error is made by gnome-software requesting things before the system fully initialized (possibly also internet connection).

That would prevent it from running "when the user logs in", not "during boot". If it is running during boot, that would be before XDG autostart ever runs, because it would be before the user logs in and runs gnome.

Now, it could be by the time you log in to gnome, you still don't have internet, and always waiting to manually run gnome-software wouldn't be a bad idea in my opinion, regardless.

Yeah my bad. Saying "during boot" thought about the whole boot process, including logging in. smile
