Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4pre) Gecko/20090308 Firefox/3.1b4pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.1b4pre) Gecko/20090310 Calendar/1.0pre

After I update the /usr/lib/sunbird directory and set permissions so it is NOT world writable Sunbird errors on load.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update /usr/lib/sunbird directory with latest nightly
2. Set Permissions So World Read/Execute, but NOT Write
3. Open Sunbird
Actual Results:  
Sunbird will error with the following message, which I have to click through multiple times:

"Calendar could not install this item because of a failure in Chrome Registration, Please contract the author about this problem."

Expected Results:  
Sunbird should open up without any error.

If I change the permissions so it IS world writable Sunbird opens fine, then I change permissions back so it is NOT world writable and no error appears. Seems it only needs world writable permissions on FIRST use. This issue occurs even when all extensions are disabled.

Do you update sunbird by just copying the new content to /usr/lib/sunbird or by replacing it? The latter is recommended. Could you compare the content of the sunbird program folder before and after the first use? What files were changed, added or removed?

Looking at other bugs with the same error message this might be related to extension upgrade. Sunbird ships with some built-in extensions, e.g. timezone database, lightning stub, default theme. Does extensions.log in your profile folder shows any related message after the failure?

I update by completely deleting contents of /usr/lib/sunbird then extracting the nightly there.

The only file/dir I can see being modified is the creation of /usr/lib/sunbird/updates & /usr/lib/sunbird/updates/0
