Subject: [gentoo-user] KDE4 applications are spamming stderr to death
Date: Fri, 26 Feb 2010 20:25:38
Message-Id: hm9an5$pd4$
1 Is it normal that every KDE (4.4.0) application is generating an awful
2 lot of debug messages on stderr? When I start one from the terminal (be
3 it Dolphin, Konqueror or whatever) the output generated is pretty much
4 gigantic. It's stuff like this:
6 QPainter::setPen: Painter not active
7 QPainter::font: Painter not active
8 QPainter::font: Painter not active
9 QPainter::setFont: Painter not active
10 QPainter::setPen: Painter not active
11 QPainter::font: Painter not active
12 konqueror(12426)/kio (Slave) KIO::Slave::createSlave: createSlave
13 "file" for KUrl("file:///usr/share/apps/kdeui/about/box-top-
14 middle.png")
15 konqueror(12426)/kio (KIOConnection)
16 KIO::ConnectionServer::listenForRemote: Listening on "local:/tmp
17 /ksocket-realnc/konquerorb12426.slave-socket"
18 kio_file(12429)/kio (kioslave) KIO::SlaveBase::mimeType: "image/png"
19 kio_file(12431)/kio (kioslave) KIO::SlaveBase::mimeType: "image/png"
20 kio_file(12433)/kio (kioslave) KIO::SlaveBase::mimeType: "image/png"
21 kio_file(12435)/kio (kioslave) KIO::SlaveBase::mimeType: "image/png"
22 konqueror(12426)/kio (Slave) KIO::Slave::createSlave: createSlave
23 "file" for KUrl("file:///usr/share/apps/kdeui/about/box-middle-
24 left.png")
25 kio_file(12443) kdemain: Starting 12443
26 [...]
27 [etc, etc, ad infinitum]
29 Currently, after about 2 hours of uptime, my ~/.xsession-errors is about
30 12MB big and full with those debug messages.
32 The "debug" USE flag is globally disabled. What's going on? I doubt
33 this is intended behavior.
