Hi, I've succesfully installed on my openSUSE 13.1 with KDE, the package 3.3.2 (from repo home:etamPL ) but some applets do not want to work .

One in particular, the trash, I really want to use ( ).

How can fix it?

(note: I'm a terrible noob of Linux and openSUSE and Cairo and... work in progress !!)

Regards

Thank you for bringing this forward. I am not a developer but I do use the dock and I am familiar with debugging so let me get some help started here.

Is there something specific you can tell us about the applets not working? With the trash applet what exactly happens? Does it show up in the dock?

There are some other topics on the forums about openSUSE issues that have been resolved so once we determine the exact problem finding a solution may not be difficult.

But nothing happens when I try to use by clicking with mouse or trying to empty the trash.

Do the applets stack, folders, shortcuts and quick browser behave the same way?

Can you open the trash folder from the command line?

For me on Xubuntu I can do it with the command:
gvfs-open trash:/

or even just the filemanager?
gvfs-open /


2 issues I have seen in other threads that are similar to this are related to gvfs and/or gnome-integration not being installed.

Is gvfs running?
ps -ef | grep gvfs

I found a bug report regarding the error you received http://debian.2.n7.nabble.com/Bug-745058-Many-error-messages-td3231600.html I also read several other pages discussing this issue but I did not investigate it.

It may have something to do with something called KIO urls or KIO Slaves in KDE but I am not sure. gvfs uses the GIO in Glib2 from what I have been able to find out so far. I am not sure how GIO and KIO interact with each other since they are both frameworks to do the same thing, I assume the application just uses whichever one it requires but gwenview might be KIO specific.

Is it possible to change the default file manager and test (maybe Dolphin, thunar or Konqueror)?

Thanks! I've read but I do not know how to solve.

For the file manager Dolphin is the default one (or Konqueror) and trash is locate on path ~/.local/share/Trash/files/

but I do not understand why Gwenview start in place of Dolphin

Here is a page that discusses this very issue http://askubuntu.com/questions/464271/how-do-i-restore-dolphin-instead-of-gwenview-as-default-file-manager. They suggest to install exo-utils and then run exo-preferred-applications to fix it.

They note that Dolphin is already set as the default file manager for kde but gwenview keeps openening as the file manager instead.

I assume the exo-preferred-applications will set the default apps for gvfs.

A step in the right direction

But trashbin applet still does not work.

What about the other things like stack, folders, shortcuts and quick browser?

So let's run the dock from a terminal. Right click on the dock and quit (if you use the dock to open a terminal open the terminal first). In the terminal run cairo-dock then click on the trash applet (wait for a moment to let cairo-dock messages stop first) and see what messages come up (before you click on the trash applet you can press the enter key a few times in the terminal to get some lines to give a good indication of where the trash applet messages start).

Sorry for the long delay, very busy lately.

Unfortunately I am not familiar with openSUSE or KDE and I am not a developer so I can not help with in-depth debugging. I have attempted to find out information about this issue but not having much luck.

I would suggest to try one of the other packages in the openSUSE repositories http://software.opensuse.org/package/cairo-dock. Since they are all listed as unstable another one may work better.

As I get time I will attempt to research this more.

Thanks,
I've installed Cairo from repos home:Herbster0815 (3.3.2 - 64 Bit), home:PerryWerneck (3.3.2 - 64 Bit), home:Tehnari (3.3.2 - 64 Bit), home:marcus_gama (3.3.2 - 64 Bit) but same issue.

I could add the path of trash folder manually in the applet config?

It is probably not directly related to cairo-dock but gvfs maybe the mimeapps.list file. There are multiple threads discussing this so we should be able to get it. You can't set the trash folder manually because it uses gvfs. I may have more time in a day or so to look further.

I found the following in another thread http://www.glx-dock.org/bg_topic.php?t=6798

matttbe :
Can you post the content of this file: ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
And what's the output messages of this command:
gvfs-mime --query inode/directory

Is it better after having selected the right program by using this command?
mimeopen -d .
(you should find something like dolphin-folder-handler)

Sorry for the delay in responding, I've personal problems, but thank you very much for the help!

Then, I added gvfs from here https://software.opensuse.org/package/gvfs

and the content of mimeapps.list is:

and output comand for

is:

and output command for

If 'mimeopen' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf mimeopen


I tried also

cnf mimeopen


but output is

mimeopen: : command not found
