Software & Applications / Problem running Tizonia as a snap package
« Last post by tizonia on April 01, 2020, 12:46:45 pm »
Hi,

A user has raised an issue in Tizonia's bug tracker:
https://github.com/tizonia/tizonia-openmax-il/issues/703

He's trying to run Tizonia cloud music player and he has installed it via the Snap package.

Apparently, in Peppermint OS, the $XDG_CONFIG_HOME variable is defined in the snap environment:

Code: [Select]
$ snap run --shell tizonia                
bash: /usr/bin/dircolors: Permission denied
bash: /etc/bash_completion: Permission denied

juan@tizonia:/home/juan/Documents$ env | grep HOME
HOME=/home/juan/snap/tizonia/297
XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/home/juan/.config
juan@tizonia:/home/juan/Documents$


XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not defined in vanilla Ubuntu:
Code: [Select]
$ snap run --shell tizonia                
To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

juan@ubuntu1804:/home/juan/Documents$ env | grep HOME
HOME=/home/juan/snap/tizonia/297
juan@ubuntu1804:/home/juan/Documents$

The fact that XDG_CONFIG_HOME  is defined and is pointing to a directory outside of the snap '$HOME' is causing problems to Tizonia in Peppermint OS. Apparently, the Snapcraft devs have discouraged the use of XDG_CONFIG_HOME in the snap environment, especially when it points to directories outside of the snap home.

I'm trying to find out if I should raise a bug in Peppermint OS's bug tracker.

Thanks!

was not aware this would possibly cause problems.
maybe someday an easy recovery will be an alternative.

thanks for the help.

We have no knowledge of this being a bug related to PeppermintOS or to Ubuntu. Seeing the age of your computer, it could just as well be a hardware failure. Without access to the keyboard this will be almost impossible to trouble-shoot.

Can you start a live session on your computer (using the PeppermintOS installation medium)? If so, start running some hardware checks (e.g. RAM check and HDD checks).  ;) And, if you get the live session to work: start backing up your important personal files to an external device (e.g. USB thumb drive or external HDD) in case you need to do a complete reinstallation or in case your hardware is failing.

Hi Littlelegs,

Good advice from @stevesveryown. Run a complete HDD check using perhaps this article or this one to guide you.  ;)

Also be sure to check the integrity of your PeppermintOS ISO by making sure that the checksums that you get match those we have published (they appear on the drop down when you click on the Download button at peppermintos.com.

Hi Brotherred,

Have you asked or looked around on the neverball forum? It is always best to check with the creators first before asking on our forum. If you do not get any assistance on their site or they tell you that the problem is definitely on our end, then feel free to seek help here. As a small team we are often struggling to keep up with issues that more directly relate to PeppermintOS;)

The encryption makes it much more difficult to get access if it's been corrupted, unless you have the right kind of backups. It might be easier to reinstall...
