Hello, I'm running a fresh install of CentOS 7, fully updated, with the epel and google repositories added to my repo list.
yum info gvfs.x86_64 shows Version 1.30.4 Release 3.el7 This package provides gvfsd and the backends, including gvfsd-admin. I noticed a typo in the man-page for gvfsd while I was trying to trouble shoot a problem I'm having and thought I should mention that first, in case it's not fixed in the latest upstream release. I see the following text in the man-page for gvfsd: ... It spawns new backends when requested and keeps track fo their lifecycle, maintaining a list of active mounts and creates direct connections to them. ... I believe 'keeps track fo their lifecycle' should actually read 'keeps track of their lifecycle'. My main problem is when I try to use the gvfsd-admin backend, it fails. For example, in Nautilus, I hit CTRL-L and type admin:///root and eventually, it times out. Same with gedit. I've even tried using gio list admin:///root I followed the debugging instructions located at: https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/gvfs/debugging And every time I try to access a directory or file using the admin-backend (which I believe gvfsd should be starting automatically), I see the following message: Refusing to render service to dead parents. I've reached out to the CentOS 7 forum members to see if they could possibly reproduce the error, but I haven't received a response yet and I'm not sure how to continue. Would anyone know what I might be doing wrong here? As a temporary work-around, I create a Gnome auto-start file that executes a bash script that executes: pkexec /usr/libexec/gvfsd-admin --address $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS And this allows me to successfully use the backend. dmesg shows: 42094.083046] fuse init (API version 7.22) [42098.844999] warning: `gvfsd-admin' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use) But I don't think gvfsd-admin using 32-bit capabilities is causing my issue. Any suggestions? I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask. The mailing list page said: This list is about development and use of gvfs, a virtual filesystem implementation for gio. So to me, because this involves the use of gvfs, and it's backends, I thought it was the perfect place to get help. Thanks!
