Hey, I realize this is kind of vague but just ask me for more information if you need it.
Ive noticed this in 2 places specifically.
The first is when I try to open the only “tarball” program Ive ever tried to install, Celtx. I unpacked the program into my bin folder, and when clicking (or double clicking) on either the executable file or the shell script nothing happens. If I double click on shell script, and then on the executable, I get an error saying “celtx is already running but not responding. To open a new window you must first close the existing celtx process, or restart your computer”.
The second time is when I get a notice on my screen about new security updates available. I click on it, and it opens up the “software update” window with the updates it wants to install already checked. I click “install updates” and nothing happens. If I click the help button, it gives me an error “failed to execute child process “gnome-help””. Im guessing this one is because Im not using gnome, but XFCE. If I open up online update using yast, I can update from there and install these files fine.
So basically the second problem is not that big of a deal, since Im able to install the files from a different area. Its just annoying and I dont know if it means there is a deeper bug in my system. The first problem makes me unable to run a program I really wan to run, so thats the one I really need the most help with.
I’m running 11.2 with XFCE
