readout suddenly included:
inotify_add_watch(~/.config/fcitx/dbus) failed: (Permission denied)
I checked another machine and it's not there.
This has never appeared before.
Any ideas on what that is and how I can fix it?
Also, I was reading online, trying to research and answer someone's question, just before this and there was a NoScript popup request which I blocked. It was when I restarted that this inotify line first appeared.
Not sure if the two are connected.
sudo apt-get purge fcitx
first yielded a strange message about dpkg being interrupted. I had to run
sudo dpkg --configure -a
After purging fcitx and all other associated files, the inotify message was not there in the readout. However, reinstalling fcitx brought it right back.
I have other Impish machines with fcitx installed and this is the only one with this strange inotify message.
was able to remove the inotify permission denied message, but I still want to know:
- Is it normal for torbrowser-launcher to initiate inotify_add_watch for my IME?
- What is the purpose of inotify_add_watch?
