Thread: zypper wants to remove System tray every time it is run

  1. #1

    Default zypper wants to remove System tray every time it is run

    Hi,

    I just did a fresh install of tumbleweed and the first time I opened a console and wanted to install software using zypper it shows that it wants to remove "System Tray"
    This is very weird because this is fresh install from DVD and I did nothing with the system yet.

    I'm posting this because it now happens every time I want to remove or install a package with zypper.

    It always shows this:

    Code:
    [sudo] password for root:  
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    The following application is going to be installed:
      "VLC Media player"
    
    The following 6 NEW packages are going to be installed:
      gimp-plugin-aa libaa1 libprojectM2 libSDL_image-1_2-0 vlc vlc-qt
    
    The following application is going to be REMOVED:
      "System Tray"
    
    6 new packages to install.
    
    
    I try to do:
    Code:
    sudo zypper rm "System Tray"
    but no luck, also read this:
    https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/.../msg00133.html
    and this:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/openSUSE/co...n_is_going_to/

    and done
    Code:
    sudo zypper dup
    on fresh install but the issue still remains, zypper is really keen on removing my System Tray.

    Does anybody know how to fix this?

    Thanks

    You cannot, and there is nothing to "fix" really.
    Just ignore it.

    It's a glitch in zypper's handling of appdata, or caused by the fact that additional repos do not include this appdata yet (are you using additional repos?).
    Note that it tells it wants to remove the *application* "System Tray", not any package.

    This exact "problem" has been mentioned in this bug report too:

    As I understand here, it's currently a small glitch in TW and to be ignored. I get the same thing with TW and have for a couple of weeks....all continues to update normally, even with the errant warning.

    Ignore anything that zypper says about removing applications. If it says that it will remove package, do take notice of that. But removing applications isn't something that it does, so the message is just a minor bug.
