Perhaps this should be in another section of the forum but it's affecting my use of Libre Office on LXDE so I'm starting here. If I'm in the wrong forum, please move.
I've done a fresh install of LXDE as I had been trying Phoenix, unsucessfully, so am back to what I feel works on my elderly notebook. I use Libre Office quite extensively so went to put it in after installing all of the Synaptic updates. LO Manager is telling me (and I couldn't copy/paste this):
"LO Manager 3.5.2
Old startup script detected and deleted.
Please run LO Manager again.
If you get this message again:
a) as root: remove the file /tmp/xsulomanager
b) as normal user: run LO Manager"
That's nice. Where do I find "/tmp/xsulomanager" so I can deleted it? Do I access it from LXTerminal? If not, how do I get to it to delete it? I assume that LO Manager 3.5.2 will replace it, if necessary, with something that makes it happy.
This was a real surprise to me as when I last installed LXDE, LibreOffice went in without hesitation. I gather something drastic has been changed in the past two-three months...
Thank you for your attention and advice.
A puzzled Far North...
there is nothing wrong here. You will get this message when you previously cancelled the gksu-window or there was some other error. The message says that this file, which should not be there, was found and deleted (so lomanager already fixed that for you) and then the message tells you Please run lomanager again
. Did you do that? No? Why not?
It may also be that this file still exist because lomanager was run as root (which is not needed but some guys still do that), and then cancelled and for that reason the file /tmp/xsulomanager
has root permissions and can not be deleted by test inside the script. For this nice case the error message tells you to delete that file as root. And then run lomanager again as normal user.
I thought writing that in the popup message was pretty clear, apparently it isn't...
Where do I find "/tmp/xsulomanager" so I can deleted it?
, maybe in the directory /tmp/
but you may not find such a file there because lomanager already did that for you: Old startup script detected and deleted.
Then the lomanager window told you to run lomanager again as normal user
, just do that please.
