Linux Mint 18.3 (Cinnamon) - Icon tray response with delay and wrong status (+ errors in log)


#1

After update to 1.4.9 the icon tray respond to click after about 10 seconds. Moreover the status is wrong, it shows offline (not always, it’s a bit erratic), but the program in fact works as expected.

Here is an error found in the log that happen when I click on the tray (“Adgang nægtet” = “Access denied”):

Please ask your system administrator to enable user sharing.

I have also tried to give access to my user to /home/franco/.cache/dconf/user (it’s currently own by root) without success.

Hey @fsoldera!

Thanks for reaching out. Tagging our engineer @Kurt_Ko for assistance.

For your information: “chown -R franco:franco /home/franco/.cache/dconf/user” fixed the problem. Unless the next update will reverse the ownership again.

Thanks for the info @fsoldera! :slight_smile:
