AppCafe and Control Panel No Longer Working


#1

The AppCafe and Control Panel applications are no longer working for me in Lumina or xfce. They open and then close immediately. I recently installed LightDM and deleted pcdm. The LightDM greeter seems to be working fine, but now AppCafe and Control Panel do not work. Please advise. Thanks.


#2

Try command line:

Working looks like this:

% sysadm-client -localhost
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-<USERNAME>'
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-<USERNAME>'
 * status: started
Open Localhost window: On Page: ""
Got Server Authentication

What’s Your result? Post it.


#3

Here is a screen print. I hope this is visible.


#4

on the menu bar, far left to right

clock, network connection, sound/volume, and finally SysAdm, which has Appcafe

What happens when you try to run sysadm-client do when you run it? it should add another icon to the menu bar

Also, the logs are in ls -la /var/log/sysadm/websocket/


#5
% rc-service sysadm status
 * status: started

What do You have?


#6

It says “started”.

This is from the hostinfo-2018-03-06.log. Please let me know if you need some other logs as well. Thanks.

A) Why root?
B) Why SSL?


#9

I have no idea why that is in the log.


#10

Nor have I.

I have my normal user account from the installation phase, and no SSL.


#11

if at all possible, roll back one Boot Environment (BE) and try

nothing else comes to mind


#12

Newbie here. Could you please explain how to do that? Thanks.


#13

On first boot screen, quickly press “space” to pause the timeout and choose BE


#14

At the bottom right there is a cloud looking thing with 3 lines trough it (SysADM) click on it, and then go to “Local System” under System Management you will see a button called" Boot Environments. There you can activate, create, and delete, boot environments.


#15

When I go there “local system” is grayed out. In fact, there is a message that says “Local system: lost connection”. When I try to select local system, it asks for the password. I enter it, but nothing happens.


#16

damn, guess we’ll have to do it the olde school way.

open a terminal and type;

beadm list

post what you see


#17

I want to thank all of you for trying to help. I went ahead and reinstalled TrueOS on VirtualBox.


#18

Where you on Virtual Box before?


#19

Yes. After I reinstalled, I tried LightDM again and the same thing happened. I was able to boot to the initial boot selection to get past it.

Hi, i encountered the same problem (Control Panel application open and then close immediately), but i don’t know why and i don’t remember the actions i do before this bug appeared. I reinstalled TrueOS. It’s look like a bug. I will tell you if it happens again.
