Installer IBUS warnings on Ubuntu

Printer-friendly version

The Problem

On Ubuntu, running one of our product's installers in GUI mode with elevated privileges (using sudo alone) may result in the following warning in the terminal:

(Setup:5130): IBUS-WARNING **: The owner of /home/xyz/.config/ibus/bus is not root!

Solution

This is considered intentional, according to ibus package maintainer's for Ubuntu (see here). The fix for this is to either run the installer with sudo -i or gksudo.

For example:

sudo -i ~/Downloads/ThingSpan-15.0.1-linux86_64.run

Hope that helps!
