|0000583||Cinelerra-GG||[All Projects] Bug||public||2021-08-01 12:46||2021-08-02 10:55|
|Platform||X86_64||OS||Mint XFCE||OS Version||20.2|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000583: 2021-07 AppImage gives error msgs when using HTML manual from shell commands|
|Description||If you start CinGG from a terminal, and use "shell cmds -> HTML Current manual" , the online manual opens in the browser.|
If you then close that browser tab, an error message appears in the terminal:
###!!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost
This did not happen on prior AppImage versions (tested 2021-06 through 2021-02).
|Steps To Reproduce||See description.|
|Additional Information||I wonder if this manual needs to be accessed online, now that the HTML version is standard included in the AppImage. You might as well point the browser to that included version, allowing it to work off-line.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
It is not always reproducible. I did not have it this morning on Mint 20.2, but had it several times on Mint 19.3 32 bit, in a Vbox VM. It gave an extra error line about a Mozilla file not found.
"touch: cannot touch '/home/mat/.mozilla/90.0.2+linuxmint1+tricia.dpkg_version': No such file or directory"
It seems to be related to (something in) the ~./mozilla directory .
Maybe the first time a (new version of) Mozilla is used this happens, because on the Mint 20.2 I did an full update prior to testing, and Firefox was updated to 90.0.2 .
The same on the 32 bit version, I also updated it before testing. I could usually but not always get it again by deleting the entire .mozilla subdir. Have not yet tested this on Mint 20.2 64 bit, or Manjaro.
I confirm the issue.
(Arch; KDE; Firefox)
I can not reproduce any error here using "firefox" on Mint 20 (or Fedora on desktop or laptop). I tried with firefox not currently up and with it up with multiple tabs. My test: start the AppImage and before doing anything else, click on Shell Menu option HTML Manual and it comes up in a tab; look at terminal startup window and there are no messages; then close the HTML Manual tab and still no messages.
Which browser are you using?
Does it fail when you start it as follows: CIN_CONFIG=/tmp/bcast1 CinGG-20210731-x86_64.AppImage ?
The information I found online for that error message is: "This usually results in the firefox process taking longer than expected to return after quitting the application, but no other negative side effects."
About: "I wonder if this manual needs to be accessed online, now that the HTML version is standard included in the AppImage. You might as well point the browser to that included version, allowing it to work off-line." That sounds like a very good idea except when users or people who provide this for others do not install the Help portion (now newly documented in the manual by Andrea) or worse yet, just forget to add it.
|I just discovered that the error does not appear on the "older_distro's" AppImage, on the same test system.|
