In the past. refresh application button works on Windows 7 HVM. I don't know if this issue has only happened to me after some dom0 upgrade. So I post here first.
I'm running fully up-to-date Qubes OS 4.0. After I installed some applications on Windows 7 Template HVM and decided to refresh the application list in the application tab. But after I clicked Refresh application button. It stuck at "Refresh in progress...". When I close setting window out and open it again. The application list did not update. After some tracing. I found out when I type "qvm-sync-appmenus WIN7-HVM-NAME" in dom0 terminal throwing the following error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/qvm-sync-appmenus", line 9, in <module> load_entry_point('qubesdesktop==4.0.16', 'console_scripts', 'qvm-sync-appmenus')() File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/qubesappmenus/receive.py", line 405, in main process_appmenus_templates(appmenusext, vm, new_appmenus) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/qubesappmenus/receive.py", line 312, in process_appmenus_templates templates_dir) File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/shutil.py", line 241, in copy copyfile(src, dst, follow_symlinks=follow_symlinks) File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/shutil.py", line 120, in copyfile with open(src, 'rb') as fsrc: FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/qubes-appmenus/qubes-start.desktop' So basically I solve the problem by typing "sudo touch /usr/share/qubes-appmenus/qubes-start.desktop" and re-run the command again this time it didn't throw the error and when I press "Refresh Application" on Windows 7 Template HVM and BANG! Application list updated. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
