Debugging GNOME Online Accounts

with one comment

I spent some time today documenting how to debug various problems with online account integration in GNOME. It is also linked from the main GNOME Online Accounts wiki page. So, you can find it via the usual click-stream and don’t need to rely on this blog.

It is still basic. I want to expand it further to cover how to debug specific integration points. For example, issues with mounting Google Drive in Nautilus, or some breakage involving Kerberos. Anyway, it’s a start and I am quite happy to have one less thing on my TODO list. Sometimes, things in GNOME seem like a maze of hidden D-Bus daemons, known only to the initiated. Hopefully, this will make it more approachable.

Oh, and don’t shy away from editing it. It’s a Wiki!

  1. May be it is more straightforward to use some command line tools intead of getting information though dbus. Like libaccounts-glib-tools for debian/Ubuntu.
