[Solved] PCmanfm not initializing
« on: January 06, 2021, 12:12:26 AM »
Hi I got problem running pcmanfm file manager on first click as it is not opening, I had to execute some Ondemand app like gnome-calculator before I could make it work.

Sounds like the startup script could use some fixing.

Which platform are you using ? 32-bit or 64-bit

This is the startup script for pcmanfm:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:/tmp$ cat squashfs-root/usr/local/tce.installed/pcmanfm
#!/bin/sh
# borrowed from bmarkus the LXDE guru

if [ ! -f /home/$USER/.gtkrc-2.0 ] ; then
   USER=`cat /etc/sysconfig/tcuser`
   cp /usr/local/share/pcmanfm/.gtkrc-2.0 /home/$USER/
   # echo 'include "/home/$USER/.gtkrc-2.0.mine" ' >> /home/$USER/.gtkrc-2.0

   chown $USER:staff /home/$USER/.gtkrc*
   chmod 644  /home/$USER/.gtkrc*

This is the startup script for gnome-calculator
Code: [Select]
tc@box:/tmp$ cat calc/usr/local/tce.installed/gnome-calculator
#!/bin/sh

glib-compile-schemas /usr/local/share/glib-2.0/schemas

I believe you'll need to add that line to pcmanfm.

Can you confirm that as I don't have a working machine around ?

I've already added the line 4
Code: [Select]
glib-compile-schemas /usr/local/share/glib-2.0/schemas to pcmanfm startup.

Working like a charm :-). Thank you!

Here's what I see with pcmanfm from the x86 11.x repo:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i pcmanfm
...
gtk-query-immodules-2.0: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
...
$ pcmanfm
pcmanfm: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

If I then add pcre as a dep of gtk2, pcmanfm works without the need for gsettings.

gtk2 dep file adjusted.

I'm sorry but the problem reoccurred after I deleted Seamonkey on onboot list
