Thread: How to stop the .xsession-errors file from being produced

  1. #1

    Default How to stop the .xsession-errors file from being produced

    Every so often I get this huge file called ".xsessions-errors". I would like to stop that file from being produced. Which file under X11 do I edit, or comment out?

    Thanks!

    The question should be why is it getting so large? What size are we talking about, a few MiB or GiB? If it's getting extremely large, something isn't right in your X window session, and you should try to correct that, not hide it.

    I noticed it only occurs when I use certain programs. Hundreds of MB's in size. Once it was 1.5GB. I was playing around with a new program. SInce I know a program causes it, I would like to disable it.

    Thanks

    What programs are these? Open a terminal and enter

    Code:
    cat ~/.xsession-errors | tail -n 60
    Post the output here, wrapped in CODE tags. What DE are you using, and what version of openSUSE?

    After playing around with Kvpnc last night I had a file of 220MB in size. It was not there before that. I was doing nothing else at the time.

    What VPN client are you using? I suspect that's what's calling the error reporting service.

    I "attempted" to get kvpnc to work....but failed. LOL. I need a tutorial on that. I do have a proxy that works perfectly, but it would be nice to get the VPN to work also.

    Why don't you start a thread in the Network/Internet forum? Give as much detail as you can as to what you want to do and people should be able to get you started there. I haven't used VPN in years, so I wouldn't be the one to help on that.

    I just ran a PIC Programmer using wine, after 2 hours I burned up 70GB on that **** .xsession-errors file.

    I need to stop that file from forming. Someone has to know how to stop it.

    Well really it is there for a reason to collect errors it is best to fix what is causing the errors, But here is a hack that may do it

    delete the .xsession-errors file

    make a link named .xsession-errors to /dev/nul like this

    ln /dev/nul .xsession-errors

    now anything sent to .xsession-errors file will go to nul device which means nowhere
