Description moesasji 2007-06-09 16:29:58 UTC
When starting the application "dialogblocks" I get an error-popup with the content: Can not enumerate files in directory '/usr/share/mimelnk' (error 13: Permission denied)

The error seems logical as the directory /usr/share/mimelnk is owned by root. It's not a major problem...just annoying to get the popup each time at startup. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just start the application.

Actual Results:  
Get an error-popup before the application starts. 

Expected Results:  
Get the application itself. 

**) This problem is also present with dialogblocks-4.09, which compiles fine when simply renaming the ebuild.

$ ls -ld /usr/share/mimelnk
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 80 2006-03-14 14:31 /usr/share/mimelnk

Don't see how this could cause permission denied errors... If /usr/share/mimelnk has different permissions, you should find out what installed it with wrong permissions.

Comment 2 moesasji 2007-06-09 16:56:06 UTC
Indeed wrong interpretation from my side. 
I have different permissions on that directory, so that's where the problems lies. 

PulsarX2 share # ls -ld /usr/share/mimelnk
drwx------ 4 root root 4096 Sep 26  2006 /usr/share/mimelnk

No clue what caused it...but seeing the date it won't be relevant. 
Sorry for the useless bug-report. :-(

Reopen if you manage to find out what's install the dir 0600; thanks for reporting back.
