[Bug 773564] Re: compiz occasionally hangs with 100% cpu usage (inotify plugin infinite loop)
I'm no expert but i had some of the same .xsession-errors entries as in
post #24 including:
WARN 2011-10-19 09:17:27 unity.iconloader IconLoader.cpp:509 Unable to load contents of file:///usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/places/svg/category-installed.svg: Error opening file: No such file or directory
WARN 2011-10-19 09:17:27 unity.iconloader IconLoader.cpp:509 Unable to load contents of file:///usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/places/svg/category-available.svg: Error opening file: No such file or directory
When i did in a terminal:
it showed that there where "group-installed" and "group-available"
instead of "category-installed" and "category-available". So i made an
assumption that there had been a change in the code between 11.04 and
11,10 in the naming these and simply created simlinks ie:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/places/svg/group-installed.svg /usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/places/svg/category-installed.svg
sudo ln -s /usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/places/svg/group-available.svg /usr/share/icons/unity-icon-theme/places/svg/category-available.svg
When i did that many more .desktop items appeared in my
/usr/share/applications file that need to be in place before that
application icon will appear in the unity launch bar.
PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT KNOW IF I HAVE CREATED ANY OTHER PROBLEMS DOING
THIS but my upgrade of unity seemed to work better after this.
I also have the dbus errors in .xsession-errors log in post #24 but i
think that may be related to ubuntu one polkits or something like that -
haven't figured that out yet.
As far as the high cpu load - i couldn't stop my upgrade from freezing
until i stopped the nautilus file manager from controlling the desktop.
That means you can't use nautilus to place icons on the desktop but
unity has its own method of doing that.
Its difficult to speculate what the specific problems are without
looking at the .xsession-error log entries which is very handy for
