Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc:
Port: gnucash dbus

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

did a fresh install of Leopard and updated to 10.5.7 on an Intel iMac installed MacPorts 1.7.1 from dmg ran: port install gnucash came back this morning and it had successfully completed, but gnucash will not start

$ gnucash
gnc.bin-Message: main: binreloc relocation support was disabled at configure time.

Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display "/tmp/launch-0gZC56/:0".
Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!

Tried suggestions here, but I can not get dbus to load (#19268)

$ launchctl -F load /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist 
Unknown argument: '-F'
nothing found to load

$ launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist 
nothing found to load

$ launchctl unload /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist 
launchctl: Error unloading: org.freedesktop.dbus-session

$ launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist 
nothing found to load

Rebooted, but still can't get it to work.

Port: gnucash dbus added

Assigning to maintainer of dbus since gnucash has no maintainer.

Status: newassigned

If you look at the output message when dbus installed, there are the instructions to run:

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

If gnucash still does not work, please try rebooting.

Please let me know if these suggestions work.
