Ticket #444 (closed defect: duplicate)
Guake won't load after update...
|Reported by:||thaenin||Owned by:||somebody|
I'm running Sabayon Linux with XFCE. Guake has been perfect. Today I installed several updates--careless equo upgrade. I'm not sure what all changed. Here is what happens when I run "guake" from a terminal:
$ guake Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib64/guake/guake.py", line 1353, in <module>
if not main():
File "/usr/lib64/guake/guake.py", line 1296, in main
instance = Guake()
File "/usr/lib64/guake/guake.py", line 649, in init
glib.GError: Error calling StartServiceByName? for org.freedesktop.Notifications: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process /usr/lib64/xfce4/notifyd/xfce4-notifyd exited with status 127
In my research I have discovered that similar problems have been seemingly due to various failures of notification features. xfce4-notifyd has been implicated. Notably, while xfce4-volumed is still working after the upgrade, its notification window is not showing up either. So I suspect there is a root cause here.
My apologies if this is a bug better addressed elsewhere. I am still relatively new to Linux and have been stumped by this problem. I have become quite dependent on Guake and am anxious to have it working again. I appreciate any efforts toward resolving this problem.
