Failed to execute child process
« on: 10. July 2014, 07:18:44 »
Whenever I try to use Octopi (0.4.0.638.b86ee5d)  to install from yaourt I get:
Code: [Select]
Failed to execute child process "/tmp/.qt_temp_1162407601" (Permission denied)
I think it is because I have "noexec" set on /tmp in fstab. This doesn't happen when I use yaourt in a terminal because I added "TMPDIR="/home/user1/tmp" to the yaourtrc configuration.

Is there a way to configure Octopi to use a different tmp directory? Or, is there another way around this issue?

Thanks!

/etc/yaourtrc
I suppose you could uncomment
#TMPDIR="/tmp"
and set the TMPDIR to your preference.
#   See yaourtrc(5) for more information  ;)

Hi friend,
No, it's not possible.

Whenever I try to use Octopi (0.4.0.638.b86ee5d)  to install from yaourt I get:
Code: [Select]
Failed to execute child process "/tmp/.qt_temp_1162407601" (Permission denied)

Thanks!
