    gvfsd-metadata pop up error

    Hi all,

    I have a problem with gvfsd-metadata.

    I installed a Ubuntu 9.10, and, using remastersys (backup mode) and unetbootin
    I built a bootable USB stick with my system, in persistent mode (i.e. the modification
    or data I put in the usb stick will remain for the next reboot).

    The problem is than when I first boot the key I get the following error:
    'Sorry, the program "gvfsd-metadata" closed unexpectedly'

    The pop up comes out after some minutes of usage and if I press OK
    everything works but the pop up will compare again.

    If I reboot, everything is OK.

    My supposition is that at the first boot, the system has to build the persistent
    filesystem, and gvfsd is unable to write something. The next boot he can write
    all he want - so no errors.

    But this is just a supposition: I do not know how to eliminate such an error!

    thanks

    Re: gvfsd-metadata pop up error

    Hi all,

    Just an update: I was trying to disable gvfsd-metadata: I found that
    it is started at the user login, so I imagine it is present in some
    configuration files in the home of the user, but I'm unable to find
    it. How can I avoid that gvfsd-metadata starts at login?

    thanks

    The thing that works for me whas


    rm -rf ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata

    Looks Like when you get your disk full those archives get corrupt, just remove the folder and it will be created again and the isue must be repaired.

    It works for me, when gvfs-metadata goes 100% my cpu
