Thread: Error when trying to run Solaar: "unknown signal name: shutdown"

  1. #1

    Default Error when trying to run Solaar: "unknown signal name: shutdown"

    I installed Solaar on openSUSE 12.1 by building from the source rpm that I downloaded at software.opensuse.org (this one: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/lemmy04/openSUSE_12.3/src/Solaar-0.9.2-6.1.src.rpm ) and running the commands:

    Code:
    > rpmbuild --rebuild Solaar-0.9.2-6.1.src.rpm
    > su
    root:> zypper install Solaar-0.9.2-6.1.noarch.rpm
    That all ran without error.

    Then I tried running solaar and got the error:

    Code:
    solaar: error: <Application object at 0xa4a6e0 (GtkApplication at 0xa8e800)>: unknown signal name: shutdown
    What is causing this? How do i fix it?

    Hi
    12.1? I probably won't work with the versions available, did you
    install/rebuild python-pyudev?

    No. The only thing it said it needed was fdupes which I installed. I'll look for python-pyudev.

    python-pyudev version 0.15-21.1

    Hi
    Something is missing from the gtk side I would guess that's in a later
    version. If you look at the spec file and see the requires, these are
    all installed?

    My build is a bit different, but only using on 13.1.

    It requires this:
    Requires: python-pyudev udev
    Requires: python-gtk
    Requires: libgirepository-1_0-1 python-gobject python-gobject2
    Requires: typelib(Gtk) >= 3.0
    From looking through YAST-Software, it appears I have all of those, HOWVER, while I have "gtk3-data", it appears to be missing "gtk3-engine". Could that be it? Where would I get that?

    I don't know but if you search in Yast and tick the provides box i will pick up libs that are part of a more general package name assuming it is some where in the repos.
