Multi user problem

Post by kramera » Wed Aug 11, 2010 4:52 pm

I have downloaded Revision 4272 from sourceforge. Compiled with my account, then installed with root.
Upon startup codelite writes/reads several png files in /tmp directory.
Next user cannot start codelite, because of file permissions on this png files.
We use codelite for many users simultaneously (xvnc). This was not a problem for 2.6.

Try with revision 4273

Make sure you run ./configure before you compile / install

I found quick fix by myself. Edit bitmap_loader.cpp: replace GetTempDir() with GetUserDataDir().

Thanx for quick response.

I suppose this will not help. The problem is not reading zip file. The problem is that extracted icons belongs to one user. Other user have read access to this anyway. But not write access. Why not copy all icons extracted to a shared folder?

Ok, I see the problem now.

There is another bug: codelite should remove the file once loaded

I have committed a fix for both (use UserDataDir && Remove the file once loaded into codelite)

It's obviously better. There is always a risk of race conditions if using shared places for writing temporary files in multi-user environment. Nevertheless codelite is an outstanding IDE. :-).

Another question relating multi-user: is there a way to start/test new version of codelite for single user without doing "make install" ?

Hi,
is there a way to start/test new version of codelite for single user without doing "make install"
Sure, 'install' it locally. I always do this anyway, within the CodeLite source dir (though more-or-less anywhere else should work too).

Code: Select all

./configure --enable-debug --prefix=$(pwd)/CL-install --plugins-dir=$(pwd)/CL-install/lib
make && make install
The CodeLite binary will be CL-install/bin/codelite.

Regards,

David
