[Linux] dconf-CRITICAL - FileBot Beta 4.9.0

Post by foo »

You asked for it ;)

Since upgrading to 4.9.0, I am experiencing a non-critical bug.

Logs

To be honest, this purely spams my logs and has no impact on the outcome--everything gets renamed properly. Just thought I'd mention it, in case this leads to further issues down the line.

Why would FileBot need access to dconf?

dconf is a Gnome service, probably accessed implicitly by Java Swing when rendering the GUI on Linux. Just a Desktop Linux issue. Annoying, but unfortunately not something that can be fixed by me in the FileBot codebase. Might be a problem at runtime later, or it might not.

I should have mentioned I am calling this via a shell script, not via the GUI--there should be no reason to access dconf.

Try this and see if it makes a difference:

Code: Select all

export JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true"
filebot -script fn:sysinfo

Then I'm out of ideas. It's something you'd have to fix on your system is though, probably. Maybe googling will yield a solution. That'd be interesting. It seems to be common, for all kinds of applications.

Fair enough. It's not a critical bug, so I'll just see if it goes away on its own eventually.

It is weird that it only popped up after upgrading FileBot, though.

That is strange. Maybe there's a reason. Maybe it's just a coincidence. This one does come up in the forums once in a while, but I've never been able to reproduce it myself. Could be anything.
