#1415 fixed dbus could be not optional Jens H. Goebbert Jens H. Goebbert


we do not have dbus available on all machine at JSC. This seems not to be a problem for Xpra.

Except, that it filles the logfile with error messages like

^[[33m2017-01-18 16:23:31,519 cannot load dbus helper: No module named dbus^[[0m
^[[31m2017-01-18 16:23:31,534 dbus server error

#1418 worksforme cmd line arg "--configdir" Jens H. Goebbert Jens H. Goebbert

It would be great to have an command line argument "--configdir" (like it can be found for example in Xorg) to Xpra. Currently the config directory "conf.d" is fixed to the platform specific paths, which is less flexible.

This would allow to switch between different complex configurations quickly. Not only directly on the command line, but also inside a wrapper script the configuration could be switched.

(I would like to automatically chose by a wrapper script between different configurations for different login nodes, which share the same filesystem.)

#1513 fixed "--without-service" does not stop Xpra from writing files to /usr/lib Jens H. Goebbert Jens H. Goebbert


we updated lately to Xpra 1.0.5 using the install option "--without-service" on our system (without root permissions). Currently we need to patch Xpra as it tries to write to the system directory /usr/lib or /lib in setup.py and fails:

1514	        #not supported by all distros, but doesn't hurt to install it anyway:
1515	        prefix = "/usr/lib"
1516	        from xpra.os_util import is_Fedora, is_CentOS
1517	        if is_Fedora() or is_CentOS():
1518	            prefix = "/lib"
1519	        add_data_files("%s/tmpfiles.d" % prefix, ["tmpfiles.d/xpra.conf"])
1520	        add_data_files("%s/sysusers.d" % prefix, ["sysusers.d/xpra.conf"])

Can you change setup.py that way, that it avoids this if installed with --without-service.

This is related to the ticket: #1383

Best, Jens Henrik
