Problem with Conky

(nvidia-settings:23449): Gtk-WARNING **: 20:32:22.066: Failed to parse /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini: Keine Berechtigung
Gtk-Message: 20:32:22.101: Failed to load module “colorreload-gtk-module”

What does that means? What can i do?

I would first ask what version of conky you are running, and what bindings it has internally. Can you post the result of:
conky -v so I can see if the nVidia bindings are there?

Darn - I was hoping for easy here… but it appears you have a reasonably current conky, and it has the nVidia support bindings too. That error - what are the permissions for the file mentioned? (/etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini)
As in

ls -l /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

and maybe

cat /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

as well? If nothing there tells me anything - we’ll have to call in the experts :grin:

I think, I´m talking with an expert :grinning:

Thanks - but a definite exaggeration! All I can see is a possible permission glitch - and I don’t know if it helps… but

sudo chmod 644 /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

and see if it helped.

If not - then real experts will be needed…


This is a warning so, unless it’s affecting something, you can probably ignore it without issue.

$ pacman -Ss color gtk
extra/colord-gtk 0.2.0-2
    Additional GTK support code for colord



This is very cool, the nvidia settings warning is gone :+1: :grinning:

What owns that file?

pacman -Qo /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

OK, so it’s a file you created yourself? Hmm… :thinking:

At least it’s not an issue caused by the EnOS installer. :wink:

color gtk doesn´t help me, have you other ideas? :slightly_smiling_face:

Not for this, you’ve already fixed the issue. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
