Unable to execute LBRY application with VPN running

Postby zombie_ramboz » 2020-07-13 14:13

I have LBRY installed and on running the app I get the attached error. The below is returned on the terminal when running with verbose:

Code: Select all
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/fonts.conf", line 100: unknown element "blank"
Starting SDK

Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.


If I turn off my VPN LBRY works fine.

Anybody have any ideas on how to resolve.

EDIT: Unable to add attachment. The error displayed is:

Daemon has exited. "The Daemon may have encountered an unexpected error....etc" (actually it's not a very useful error message)

The forum does not accept attachments, you need to either copy/paste the text into your post, or if it is a large file , use a storage site and post a link to the file.Eg: https://paste.debian.net/

The error says "RPC server failed to bind TCP localhost:5279".
Is anything already listening on that port?
Maybe your VPN is overwriting /etc/hosts (like deleting the localhost line).
Could you post the contents of /etc/hosts before and after you connect your VPN?
