#744 closed PBI Packaging Bug (fixed)

mplayer config file has wrong owner

Reported by: sara Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: PBI System Version: 9.0-RELEASE
Keywords: mplayer config settings Cc: trac-bugs@…


I added mplayer with appcafe and it seemed to work, but the video disappears on start of playing. The video out preferences was choosing the wrong driver. Video would play on setting change, but the same problem happens after closing the app. Checking .mplayer/config in the users home director show it is owned by root so mplayer would not save any changes I made. chown to me and the settings saved and mplayer works normally.

Which version of the PBI did you run?
I just tested the latest version of MPlayer available in the AppCafe? (1.1.r20130308) and it created the configuration files with user permissions (and the settings were being properly saved when I changed them). Did you happen to start the application either as root or with "sudo" the first time you ran it?
