#261 invalid winswitch client does not appear in system tray Yurlungur

When I call the winswitch client, nothing appears in the system tray. Since there seems to be no other way to access the GUI, this renders the program unusable. A script of my command line call to winswitch_client is attached.

System details: OS: Debian Wheezy Architecture: amd64 Windows manager: XMonad System Tray program: Trayer

#302 wontfix winswitch 0.12.23: install --prefix not respected for all items (need PREFIX= environmental variable as well) J G Miller

For software installed from source, it is essential to be able to specify the installation directory tree (eg /usr/local) in order to avoid conflicts with OS installed software from packages.

And for those of us that manage installed local software with GNU stow,

(see if not familiar with the approach)

it is even more important that files get installed under the specified directory tree.

Now winswitch does this for most of the install if --prefix is used

/usr/bin/python "/usr/src/build/winswitch-0.12.23/" install --prefix="/usr/local/stow/Network/winswitch-0.12.23/usr/local"

creating /usr/local/stow/Network/winswitch-0.12.23/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/winswitch
creating /usr/local/stow/Network/winswitch-0.12.23/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/winswitch/ui
copying build/lib.linux-i686-2.7/winswitch/ui/ -> /usr/local/stow/Network/winswitch-0.12.23/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/winswitch/ui
byte-compiling /usr/local/stow/Network/winswitch-0.12.23/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/winswitch/ui/ to window_fake_tray.pyc

but for a number of items the install process ignores the prefix and installs directly under system directories /etc and /usr/lib

creating /etc/winswitch


creating /usr/lib/winswitch

For installs under "/usr/local" these should instead be accessible under /usr/local/etc/winswitch and /usr/local/lib/winswitch respectively when installation is complete.

Now after checking the file, it seems a non-standard (?) method of specifying the destination for installs works, by specifying the environmental variable PREFIX="prefix_dir" get the etc/winswich and lib/winswitch installed under the prefix dir BUT --prefix prefix_dir is still needed to get all the other items to the prefix directory.

Please ensure that the --prefix prefix_dir variable is applied to all items being installed without the need for adding the environmental variable, or at the very minimum, mention this double requirement in the README file.

Thank you for your assistance in resolving this issue.

#67 fixed windows vista uac issues Antoine Martin Antoine Martin

At then end of the installation on win6.1: Create process failed; code 740 This is probably InnoSetup trying to launch the application it has just installed. The "details" on this error are totally unhelpful. According to the InnoSetup documentation, runasoriginaluser is the default when using postinstall. Why you can install software but not run it is beyond me...

When starting the software, it asks every time Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer. Maybe this is the logfile we are trying to open? (it obviously does not tell you anything remotely helpful to diagnose) We do not want administrator privileges! Just the ability to write to our own configuration/data files! The information I found uses app manifests to gain full administrator privileges... (typical microsoft sledge hammer defeating security) Or maybe it doesn't run asInvoker unless you tell it to? Not according to this

The download link for mDNS "Download from" should popup a browser, but instead you get: The application was unable to start correctly (0xc00000a5). Click OK to close the application. This one may be resolved with the manifest above...
