Running geany from the terminal results in a number of these error messages:

(geany:25245): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.OTM76W': No such file or directory

The command

mkdir -p ~/.local/share

solves the problem, but this is probably something geany should do automatically.

Discussion

    • status: open --> closed-invalid
     
  • This is a problem with GTK, not Geany. We don't touch this file ourselves, but only through a completely abstract GTK API for recently used files, that don't even expose anything about that file.

    If it's a problem for you, file a bug against GTK.
