Just installed evince on a new system (all new packages built).
process 3545: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to
read machine uuid: Failed to open "/var/lib/dbus/machine-id": No such file
See the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.
D-Bus not compiled with backtrace support so unable to print a backtrace
Abort (core dumped)
So I ran:
sudo dbus-uuidgen --ensure
tx:evince$ cat /var/lib/dbus/machine-id
And now evince works.
I assume this problem exists for other dbus using programs?
Should pkgsrc do this automatically?
Or should these tools really require this dbus feature?
I don't know much about this. I just want to use the PDF viewer :)
