Description tt_1 2020-09-01 12:24:12 UTC
I got this warning spawning into the console if I start to edit a textfile with recently updated gedit: 

(gedit:22499): Tepl-WARNING **: 14:15:55.996: GVfs metadata is not supported. Fallback to TeplMetadataManager. Either GVfs is not correctly installed or GVfs metadata are not supported on this platform. In the latter case, you should configure Tepl with --disable-gvfs-metadata.

the gui-libs/tepl ebuild does have gvfs-metadata enforced on line 47: 		--enable-gvfs-metadata \

so, can we change gvfs-metadata to a useflag? 

if that's not an option, feel free to close as invalid. it's merely a warning

You need to be running a dbus user bus session

And I suppose have gvfs installed. But yes, it's a warning and you aren't supposed to mind console output from a graphical program too much - it does warn you that metadata doesn't work. Next big tepl release will apparently convert it from gvfs to something internal, I've read.
Comment 3 tt_1 2020-09-02 18:05:42 UTC
yeah, I got this message despite being root via `su -` , and given that it's benign - this cannot be 'cured' by making gvfs optional in compiling gui-libs/tepl?

(yes, gvfs is emerge)
