Everytime i launch Chromium, Firefox, LibreOffice or Flameshot using Command Line will have this warning:
(chromium:9070): dconf-WARNING **: 14:21:35.309: unable to open file ‘/etc/dconf/db/local’: Failed to open file “/etc/dconf/db/local”: open() failed: No such file or directory; expect degraded performance
Not sure whether Chromium temporary freeze for a few seconds once in while is related to above warning.
How to go about to rectify the missing “/etc/dconf/db/llocal”? I am on Manjaro-Arm-Gnome linux-aml-6.1.39-1.
Is there a way to force Manjaro-Arm-Gnome to generate the “/etc/dconf/db/local”? The expected “local” file/configuration? Is it necessary? The “expect degraded performance” seems to correlate with Chromium “freeze” for a few seconds now and then.
So “/etc/dcong/db/local” is not a configuration file required by “Chromium, Firefox, Flameshot, or LibreOffice” as when I launch these applications with command line on terminal, the “warning” pop-up.
It this is not the cause for Chromium to temporarily freeze for a few seconds once in a while (actually frequent enough), then I am loss what is causing Chromium to temporarily freeze.
Edit: Does “sudo dconf update” help to regenerate “/etc/dconf/db/local” read it on Ask Ubuntu? Is it safe to run “sudo dconf update”, not sure what this command does.
Edit 1: The “unable to open flie /etc/dconf/db/local” warning seems to be will any application launch using command line on terminal.
I noticed temporary freeze applies to all applications, Chromium, Firefox, File-Manager (Nautilus), Gedit, LibreOffice" – sometimes the message pop-up “chromium is not responding…” or “gedit is not responding…” and at other times NO message up. The temporary freeze could be as long as 10 seconds at times where there CPU load is low.
Like you pointed out, it might not be related to missing “/etc/dconf/db/local”.
Edit 2: Performed “sudo touch /etc/dconf/db/local” the warning still persist (for example):
The error might be produced as a message that has nothing to do with the existence of the file, or there is something else wrong. This seems like a xy problem. Providing some system info could help other users to help you beter.
The warning “unable to open file ‘/etc/dconf/db/local’: /etc/dconf/db/local: invalid gvdb header; expect degraded performance” whenever I launch an app via command line might not be related to the frequent temporary application freeze eventhough the CPU load is low or basically idling.
Update: Intestingly,today, 3 hours uptime on Manjaro-Arm-Gnome-linux-aml-6.1.39-1, have not encountered any temporary freeze on Chromium, File-Manager, Gedit or Terminal.
Edit-Update 1: Suspect the applications (Chromium, Gedit, File-Manager, etc) temporary freeze might be related to (caused by) how the Manjaro-Arm-Gnome is being boot up. The application temporary freeze that occured the last few instances seem to happen when Manjaro-Arm-Gnome is booted from USB OTG Port and at times it fails to boot from this USB OTG Port. Possible poor contact issue between the OTG Port and this particular USB flash drive.
No clue what causes the “unable to open file ‘/etc/dconf/db/local’: /etc/dconf/db/local: invalid gvdb header; expect degraded performance” warning though.
