(gucharmap:12280): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.Charmap' is not inst


slackware 64/14/3.2.29 stable up to date, full install

was looking into what /bin/[ is and didn't know what [ is called to google it, I tried to run kde/utilities/character map, it didn't run, so from command line gucharmap did

(gucharmap:12280): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.Charmap' is not installed

Trace/breakpoint trap

/var/log/packages/gucharmap-3.4.1-x86_64-1

I looked but I can't find anything bug wise for slackware, there's other mentions of bugs with gnome for other distros but I use kde.

To fix the gucharmap failure, try running this as root:
Quote:
# glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
While the above does get run as part of certain packages' install scripts, it doesn't get run for gucharmap, which does need it. So depending on the order of package installation, the output files might not include gucharmap's required file. And if it is missing, you get that error.

Note gucharmap is on the Xfce menu as Accessories > Character Map. If you try it and it does nothing, check ~/.xsession-errors for the error above, and try running this command.

Strangely enough doinst.sh script for gucharmap does contain a reference to glib-compile-schemas:
Code:
if [ -e usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas ]; then
  if [ -x /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas ]; then
    /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas >/dev/null 2>&1
  fi
fi
Source: ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...p/doinst.sh.gz

But for some reason it doesn't get executed.

Btw, I also solved the problem by manually executing glib-compile-schemas some time ago.

OK, good catch. The commands are in the source package's doinst.sh but never make it into the install package (see /var/log/scripts/gucharmap*). There is a bug in gucharmap.SlackBuild - it neglects to zcat doinst.sh.gz into the package staging area.

(Somebody should report this...)

I know this is a year old post, but I just developed this issue where gucharmap would no longer function on my Slack64 14 systems (KDE or Xfce). This fix above posted by ljb643 still worked like a champ!

Thanks, and Merry, Happy, Seasons Greetings, and all that.
