samsung-tools not starting

Postby hyper.mario » 29/10/2010, 21:00

When trying to start samsung-tools or samsung-tools-preferences, I just get the Errormessage "Unable to connect to session service!" and it doesn't start.

samsung tools version: 1.2-1
OS: archlinux
Kernel: 2.6.35

I believe it has to do with arch using python 3

I take that back, got past the python 3 issue and am now stuck at this like the OP. Any word?

Anybody have this working in arch?

The issue is that the program as written requires an active X11 session.

I've created a patch and filed a bug report to fix samsung-tools command so it doesn't require an X session. You can see the patch here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/samsung-tools/+bug/832164.
