[Solved] Failed to launch ??

[Solved] - here

Can someone explain why I plug in my external HDD and instead of Thuner opening I get this:
2021-04-20-132448-S11.jpg
It is a fairly current thing, Thunar has always popped up.

I do not use xfce4.

But have this installed:

libxfce4panel-2.0-4
libxfce4ui-2-0:amd64
libxfce4ui-common
libxfce4util-bin
libxfce4util-common
libxfce4util7:amd64
xfce4-notifyd
xfce4-power-manager				deinstall

I removed "xfce4-power-manager" since I do not have a laptop.

Re: [Solved] Failed to launch ??

Do you want removable devices to automatically be mounted when attached? (I prefer not to...)

Do you have libexo-helpers and libexo-* installed?
They seems to be missing in Bullsey. Do you run stable or testing?

Som tips if you search "failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/exo-helper-1" (no such file or directory)"

Yup and Yup.

Been looking every where for a few days. Cannot find out what causes it.

Hmmm wonder why those are here and if I need them.

More research ....

EDIT:
Easy enough: Thunar requires them

Re: [Solved] Failed to launch ??

Did you actually go into that directory and see if that file is there?
Did you figure out which package provides exo-helper-1? Does it install it in a different location?
Are you using that SharpBang distro? That's Debian Stable based, yes?

Re: [Solved] Failed to launch ??

^^@S11,
you can go to /var/log/apt/history.log
to see which packages were removed with xfce4-power-manager.
You can find that under the date and time.

If you used the "remove" command, then the configuration files are still on your system.
If you used the "purge" command, then the configuration files are also gone. And, if you then ran "autoremove", then the packages that had the missing dependency on xfce4-power-manager are also gone.

Either way, it wasn't a good idea to remove xfce4-power-manager, which doesn't even take up 600KB on your system. You've caused yourself more problems in your younger days (more to come) than what the "original idea" was.
Just install the packages again, because this one with the "youth", may take a while.  tongue  big_smile  wink

Re: [Solved] Failed to launch ??

Have you tried to purge and reinstall libexo-helpers, libexo-common, exo-utils and libexo-1-0?

Re: [Solved] Failed to launch ??

Read 3 posts .. reinstalled xfce4-power-manager.  roll  Still Thunar get mounted but pop-up remains.

↓↓ advice from unklar

Start-Date: 2021-04-07  13:18:04
Commandline: apt remove xfce4-power-manager
Requested-By: sector11 (1000)
Remove: xfce4-power-manager:amd64 (1.6.1-1), xfce4-power-manager-plugins:amd64 (1.6.1-1)
End-Date: 2021-04-07  13:18:08

... and that would be about the time I'm guessing.

Yes ... Not there, I have:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/notifyd
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/panel
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/xfconf

Did you figure out which package provides exo-helper-1? Does it install it in a different location?

Are you using that SharpBang distro? That's Debian Stable based, yes?

Yea - Debian -10

Reinstalled both:  xfce4-power-manager xfce4-power-manager-plugins

NOTE:  I have always removed xfce4-power-manager - back to #! days.

Just reinstalled: libexo-2-0 libexo-common libexo-helpers

EDIT:
Rebooted, plugged in my external HDD:
2021-04-21-101414-S11.jpg

EDIT:
xfce4-power-manager will not start

Re: [Solved] Failed to launch ??

I've run across this myself before.  From what I recall, exo-helper still relies on the old `lib-exo` so try installing `libexo-1-0`.

This morning (CET), I adviced you to:

purge and reinstall libexo-helpers, libexo-common, exo-utils and libexo-1-0

Good for you that kozimodo again proposed reinstalling libexo-1-0...

Had I listened and not thought this was an OOPS!

My apologies.  Yes you did and I re-installed what I had thinking the libexo-1-0 was a typo error as I had libexo-2-0.

Sorry about that.

In linux, details are important. Assumptions, should always be checked so certainty rules.

Re: [Solved] Failed to launch ??

^ well not only in Linux. But esp. where computers are involved.

Anyhow, glad you fixed it, S11.
