Cleaning up xsession-errors

Postby bryanmc » 2018-01-04 14:39

I decided to run through the xsession-errors log in my home directory. I came across 2 errors that I have been unable to resolve and haven't been able to come up with solutions via search.

The system is stretch w/ lightdm and Cinnamon DE

First error:
Code: Select all
cinnamon-session[1144]: WARNING: t+6.12172s: Failed to start app: Unable to start application: Failed to execute child process "light-locker" (No such file or directory)

I tried the obvious, installing light-locker, which generated a different error message that a screensaver was already loaded. I tried to disable default cinnamon screensaver by switching everything off in the settings gui but that didn't stop it from loading. I can't figure out how or where to stop the call to load light-locker. I think I can disable the cinnamon screensaver through dconf-editor but I'm not sure I want to disable it.

Second error:
Code: Select all
(thunderbird:6): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_icon_theme_append_search_path: assertion 'path != NULL' failed

I can find 2 instances of this error by searching. One is in Italian and doesn't appear to have resolved the issue. The other is here on the Debian forum but it was just in a log someone posted while working on a different problem.

Any subtle shoves in the correct direction will be appreciated.

gtk errors (even those marked critical) can and should be ignored.

the other error is really just a warning.

don't worry about it. it's not broken, so don't try to fix it.
