Office 2007 mime-type problem in KDE

Although Microsoft Office 2007 file types are normally opened by the correct Office 2007 application (running with WINE) in my Gentoo Linux Stable amd64 installation, KDE 4.14.3 on my new Clevo notebook opened *.xlsm (Excel 2007 macro-enabled spreadsheet) files with Ark instead of Excel 2007. For some reason the *.xlsm filetype was registed in the xdg-mime database to use the Ark application:

$ file myspreadsheet.xlsm
myspreadsheet.xlsm: Microsoft Excel 2007+

$ xdg-mime query filetype myspreadsheet.xlsm
application/zip

On the other hand, as you can see below, *.docx documents are correctly registed in the xdg-mime database:

$ file myworddocument.docx
myworddocument.docx: Microsoft Word 2007+

$ xdg-mime query filetype myworddocument.docx
application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document

The Office 2007 mime types are listed on the Web page Office 2007 File Format MIME Types for HTTP Content Streaming. Notice the uppercase ‘E’ in the mime-type application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.macroEnabled.12 for *.xlsm files.

I had already used ‘System Settings’ > ‘File Associations’ in KDE to configure the file association for *.xlsm files, but this made no difference.

I searched my installation and found the file /usr/share/mime/application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document.xml (for *.docx) and the file vnd.ms-excel.sheet.binary.macroenabled.12.xml (for *.xlsb), but the file vnd.ms-excel.sheet.macroenabled.12.xml (for *.xlsm) did not exist.

Then I found the freedesktop.org bug report ‘subclasses declared have wrong case‘ about the package shared-mime-info. One of the commenters stated the problem is in fact due to a bug in KDE.

I followed the work-around given in the bug report:

# mv /usr/share/mime/subclasses /usr/share/mime/subclasses.BAK
# sed -e 's/macroEnabled/macroenabled/' /usr/share/mime/subclasses.BAK > /usr/share/mime/subclasses

I then used KDE ‘System Settings’ > ‘File associations’ again, searched for .xlsm and removed Ark from the list of applications for application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.macroenabled.12, then logged-out and back in to KDE. Double-clicking on *.xlsm files now opens them in Excel 2007 again, the file /usr/share/mime/application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.macroenabled.12.xml now exists and the mime-type has been set correctly:

$ xdg-mime query filetype myspreadsheet.xlsm
application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.macroenabled.12

(I don’t have this problem opening *.xlsm files on my Compal laptop, which also has Version 1.4 of shared-mime-info installed and is also running KDE 4.14.3, albeit under Gentoo Testing ~amd64 rather than Gentoo Stable amd64, so perhaps the KDE bug has already been fixed in the Testing branch.)

Installing PeaZip in Gentoo Linux

I like the archive file utility PeaZip. A couple of years ago I used an ebuild app-arch/peazip-bin in a local overlay to install the pre-compiled utility in Gentoo Linux. Today I wanted to install PeaZip on my new laptop but neither the ebuild for the binary package nor the ebuild for the source package in third-party overlays was able to install it, not to mention that I could not find an ebuild of either type for the latest version. PeaZip Portable, however, does not require installation, so it’s not difficult to get the latest version of PeaZip running correctly in Gentoo Linux without needing an ebuild. Here’s how I installed the latest version of 64-bit PeaZip Portable in KDE …

1. Download peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2.tar.gz from the PeaZip Portable x86-64 download page and extract it to the directory /home/fitzcarraldo/peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2/ (change ‘fitzcarraldo’ to your own user name, of course).

2. Open a Konsole window and enter the following commands:

# ln -s /home/fitzcarraldo/peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2/peazip /usr/local/bin/peazip
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2/FreeDesktop_integration/peazip.desktop /usr/share/applications/kde4/
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2/FreeDesktop_integration/kde4-dolphin/usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/*.desktop /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/

The command given below is an alternative to the last command above, and the menu items would then only appear in the right-click menu of my user account and I would be able to edit them using the KDE 4 Service Menu Editor.

$ cp /home/fitzcarraldo/peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2/FreeDesktop_integration/kde4-dolphin/usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/*.desktop /home/fitzcarraldo/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/

3. Download a nice Peazip PNG icon that you find using Google Images (e.g. the 256×256 PNG icon at http://market.milouz.com/data/icon190.png).

4. Copy the icon to the PeaZip Portable directory:

$ cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Downloads/peazip.png /home/fitzcarraldo/peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2/

5. Use the KDE Menu Editor to specify the icon for the PeaZip menu entry.

6. Finally, use e.g. Gwenview to create a PNG copy of the icon resized to 16×16, and copy it to the icon folder used by the KDE Service Menu:

# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/peazip_portable-5.6.0.LINUX.x86_64.GTK2/peazip16x16.png /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/peazip.png

That’s it!

More tools for creating QR Codes in Linux

In my previous post I showed how to install CuterCode and Qreator, two simple GUI applications for producing QR Codes, in Gentoo Linux. I have now found a couple of other GUI applications, both of which offer more features than the aforementioned two, such as allowing you to specify the amount of error correction to be incorporated into the QR Code. QR Code codewords are 8 bits long and use the Reed–Solomon error correction algorithm, with four error correction levels possible in the case of QR Codes:

Level L (Low): 7% of codewords can be restored.
Level M (Medium): 15% of codewords can be restored.
Level Q (Quartile): 25% of codewords can be restored.
Level H (High): 30% of codewords can be restored.

The higher the level of error correction, the lower the storage capacity of the QR Code.

And now to the two applications …

Portable QR-Code Generator

This is a Java application, so first make sure you have installed a Java run-time environment (or Java Development Toolkit, which will include the JRE) via Portage.

Download to your home directory the archive qrcodegen_1.14.2.zip containing the compiled Java application, not the archive qrcodegen_1.14.2_src.zip with the source code (‘quellcode’ in German), from the application’s Web site. Unzip it to the directory ~/qrcodegen_1.14.2/ then enter the directory and launch the Java application from the command line as shown below:

$ cd ~/qrcodegen_1.14.2/qrcodegen
$ java -jar QRCodeGen.jar

Alternatively you can create a Desktop Configuration file QRCodeGen.desktop containing the following (change ‘fitzcarraldo’ to your own user name, of course):

[Desktop Entry]
Categories=Graphics
Comment[en_GB]=QR Code Generator is a program that lets you generate and print QR Codes easily.

StartupNotify=true
Terminal=false
TerminalOptions=

X-DBUS-ServiceName=
X-DBUS-StartupType=
X-KDE-SubstituteUID=false
X-KDE-Username=

and make it executable:

$ chmod +x QRCodeGen.desktop

You can choose a nice PNG icon by using Google Images to search for ‘qr code icon png’ and save the image with the file name icon.png in the same directory. Then you can launch QR code Generator by double-clicking on the Desktop Configuration file.

QtQR – QR Code Generator

Download the tarball qr-tools-1.2.tar.gz from the application’s Web site, unpack it to the directory ~/qr-tools-1.2/ and make the Python scripts executable:

$ cd ~/qr-tools-1.2/qr-tools
$ chmod +x qtqr.py
$ chmod +x qrtools.py

Make sure you have installed the package media-gfx/zbar with the python USE flag set, so that the Python zbar module is also installed:

# USE="python" emerge zbar

(You may as well add the python USE flag in the line for media-gfx/zbar in the Portage package.use file so that ZBar’s Python module is installed if you upgrade or re-install ZBar via Portage in future).

Check if the Python Imaging Library (fork) dev-python/pillow is already installed:

# emerge --search pillow

If it is not already installed, install it:

# emerge pillow

Now you can launch QtQR from the command line as follows:

$ cd ~/qr-tools-1.2/qr-tools
$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages:/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PIL ./qtqr.py

Alternatively, you can create a Desktop Configuration file qtqr.desktop with the following contents (change ‘fitzcarraldo’ to your own user name, of course):

[Desktop Entry]
Categories=Graphics
Comment[en_GB]=QtQR is a Qt based software that lets you generate QR Codes easily, scan an image file for a QR Code and decode it or use your webcam to scan a printed one.

X-DBUS-StartupType=
X-KDE-SubstituteUID=false
X-KDE-Username=

and make it executable:

$ chmod +x qtqr.desktop

Then you can launch QtQR by double-clicking on the Desktop Configuration file.

The QtQR GUI has a feature for decoding a QR Code in an image file and for decoding a printed QR Code held in front of a Webcam. If I select ‘Decode’ > ‘Decode from Webcam’, QtQR launches ZBar and, although it is a bit fiddly, I can successfully decode a printed QR Code. However, I cannot get QtQR to decode a QR Code in an image file that QtQR itself created (or to decode a QR Code in a file created by any other application, for that matter), so there is a bug in QtQR. Looking at the application’s bug reports this appears to be Bug No. 811576. It’s not a big deal, though, because the zbarimg command provided by ZBar can be used to decode QR Codes (see my post Installing and using ZBar in Linux to scan bar codes with your Webcam).

Linux Magazine has a good article on these and other QR Code tools: Generating QR Codes in Linux.

UPDATE (March 30, 2015): You can download an updated working revision (Revision 20) of the Python script qrtools.py, and an updated working revision (Revision 21) of the Python script qtqr.py, from the QtQR and QR Tools developers’ repository where they have been working on an as-yet unreleased Version 1.4 of QtQR and QR Tools:

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~qr-tools-developers/qr-tools/trunk/files

I have briefly tested qrtools.py Revision 20 and qtqr.py Revision 21 with the other QR Tools Version 1.2 files I downloaded earlier. I simply downloaded the Revison 20 qrtools.py file and the Revision 21 qtqr.py file and overwrote the qrtools.py and qtqr.py files I had extracted earlier from qr-tools-1.2.tar.gz into the directory /home/fitzcarraldo/qr-tools-1.2/qr-tools/ (and made them executable). With the new qrtools.py and new qtqr.py it is now possible for QtQR to decode QR Codes in image files as well as QR Codes scanned via a Webcam, so the bug I mentioned above should be fixed in the next official release of QtQR/QR Tools. So you may as well skip the official Version 1.2 and download all the files from the above-mentioned developers’ repository for the future Version 1.4.

How to create QR Codes easily in Gentoo Linux

QR Codes are two-dimensional bar codes that can store a surprising amount of information. CuterCode and Qreator are two applications that are easy to install and use to produce QR Codes that can be saved as image files for use on labels, posters, Web sites, business cards, documents, etc. Here is how to install CuterCode and Qreator in Gentoo Linux.

Example of a QR Code

A QR Code created using Qreator. You can read it using the Android app Barcode Scanner by ZXing Team and several other Android apps, and also using a Linux app (see my post on ZBar).

CuterCode

This is a Python script and simple GUI.

https://github.com/mnagel/cutercode

First download the script itself:

$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mnagel/cutercode/master/cutercode
$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mnagel/cutercode/master/cutercode.ui

Make the Python script exectuable:

$ chmod +x cutercode

Then install the package media-gfx/qrencode-python (it will pull-in the package media-gfx/qrencode) on which it depends:

# emerge qrencode-python

To launch the application:

$ ./cutercode

Use the Print Scrn key on your keyboard to launch KSnapshot (or whatever screen capture tool it is you use) and capture the QR Code to a JPG or PNG file for use in you documents. That’s it!

Qreator

The UI of Qreator is more polished than CuterCode, and you have the options to save the QR Code as a PNG file, copy it to the clipboard, print it or edit its appearance.

https://launchpad.net/qreator

Either merge it from Portage overlay dev-zero using layman:

# layman -S
# layman -a dev-zero
# emerge qreator

or download the dev-zero files into your local overlay and install it from there:

# mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/app-office/qreator/files
# cd /usr/local/portage/app-office/qreator
# wget http://data.gpo.zugaina.org/dev-zero/app-office/qreator/qreator-13.05.3.ebuild
# cd files
# wget http://data.gpo.zugaina.org/dev-zero/app-office/qreator/files/13.05.3-python-imaging.patch
# cd ..
# ebuild qreator-13.05.3.ebuild manifest
# emerge qreator

If you happen to be a KDE user, you will find a menu entry for Qreator is installed under ‘Applications’ > ‘Graphics’ in the KDE launcher, or you can launch it from the command line:

$ qreator

NetworkManager creating a new connection ‘eth0′ that does not work, Part 4

Further to my previous post, this is to report the result of another experiment. By doing all the following I can stop NetworkManager creating an invalid second eth0 connection:

  • Enable IPv6 system-wide in /etc/modprobe.d/aliases.conf by commenting-out ‘alias net-pf-10 off‘.
  • Disable use of IPv6 by the Avahi daemon in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf (see the four additional lines given in my previous post).
  • Use plasma-nm to edit the connection profile for ‘eth0′ that I had already created. Click on the IPv6 tab and ensure ‘Method: Ignored‘ is selected. Click on the IPv4 tab and ensure ‘Method: Automatic‘ is selected and ‘IPv4 is required for this connection‘ is ticked. Ticking ‘IPv4 is required for this connection‘ adds the line ‘may-fail=false‘ in the [ipv4] section in the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0 (the default value for may-fail is ‘true‘ if the box has not been ticked and may-fail has not been assigned in the file).

The various experiments I have conducted are summarised in the following table:

Laptop WiFi switch off off off off off on
IPv6 enabled in aliases.conf yes no yes yes yes yes
IPv6 enabled in avahi-daemon.conf yes yes no no yes yes
[ipv6] method= ignore ignore ignore ignore ignore ignore
[ipv4] method= auto auto auto auto auto auto
[ipv4] may-fail= true true true false false false
Invalid second eth0 created usually no usually no yes yes

As disabling IPv6 system-wide makes it impossible for NetworkManager to use IPv6, the above table can actually be written as follows:

Laptop WiFi switch off off off off off on
IPv6 enabled in aliases.conf yes no yes yes yes yes
IPv6 enabled in avahi-daemon.conf yes yes||no no no yes yes
[ipv6] method= ignore ignore ignore ignore ignore ignore
[ipv4] method= auto auto auto auto auto auto
[ipv4] may-fail= true true||false true false false false
Invalid second eth0 created usually no usually no yes yes

I still think there is a bug in NetworkManager. I would not have expected NetworkManager to create a second eth0 connection and make it an IPv6 Link-Local connection when all the following are true:

  • /etc/NetworkManager.conf has ‘no-auto-default=eth0‘ in the [main] section.
  • IPv4 is required for this connection‘ is not ticked in plasma-nm (i.e. the [ipv4] section in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0 contains either the line ‘may-fail=true‘ or the line ‘may-fail=‘).
  • Method: Automatic‘ is selected for IPv4 (‘method=auto‘ under [ipv4] in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0).
  • Method: Ignored‘ is selected for IPv6 (‘method=ignore‘ under [ipv6] in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0) and the other fields on the IPv6 tab have been rendered unselectable as a result.

Anyway, I will keep IPv6 disabled in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf and IPv6 enabled system-wide. This seems to be the first thing to try if you’re experiencing the creation of an invalid additional eth0 connection with an IPv6 Link-Local address and you’re sure that none of the net.* services are running.

NetworkManager creating a new connection ‘eth0′ that does not work, Part 3

I’m even more convinced the problem discussed in my previous post is due to a bug in NetworkManager. I believe the issue with the Avahi daemon generating an IPv6 Link-Local address is a consequence of NetworkManager not always activating an interface and therefore not obtaining an IPv4 address, i.e. the IPv6 Link-Local address produced by the Avahi daemon is a side effect, not the root cause.

After my previous post I discovered that adding ‘use-ipv6=no‘ in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf (my Experiment 2) had not prevented avahi-daemon using IPv6. However, adding the following lines in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf defintely does prevent avahi-daemon from using IPv6 in my installation:

use-ipv4=yes
use-ipv6=no
publish-a-on-ipv6=no
publish-aaaa-on-ipv4=no

You can see in the message log below that the Avahi daemon is no longer generating an IPv6 Link-Local address. However, even with IPv6 disabled in avahi-daemon, an invalid second eth0 connection with an IPv6 Link-Local address still occurs in my installation. This indicates the problem is not caused by the Avahi daemon.

In the cases when NetworkManager activates a connection correctly and there is no invalid second eth0 connection, the log contains a message like the following:

Mar 16 22:23:47 localhost NetworkManager[6688]: <info>  Auto-activating connection 'eth0'.

Notice there is no such message in the message log above.

The only way I can be sure of preventing NetworkManager creating an invalid second eth0 connection is to disable IPv6 system-wide by uncommenting the line ‘alias net-pf-10 off‘ in the file /etc/modprobe.d/aliases.conf.

So, to me, this looks like a bug in NetworkManager 1.0.0 (I have been experiencing it since Version 0.9.10.0).

More on NetworkManager creating a new connection ‘eth0′ that does not work

In a previous post I described a problem I have been experiencing with NetworkManager since Version 0.9.10.0 (I am now using Version 1.0.0): sometimes, but not always, there is an invalid second eth0 connection when my laptop boots. This invalid second eth0 connection has only IPv6 Link-Local enabled (i.e. IPv4 and IPv6 are disabled) and is Active. As a result the existing eth0 connection for IPv4 I previously created is Available but unable to connect.

While on a work trip and using my laptop on an office network and an hotel network I made some changes to my installation (see the above-mentioned previous post) that seemed to fix this problem on those networks. However, on returning home and connecting my laptop to my home network, I found the problem still exists. This makes me wonder if a race condition is occurring, as network latency can differ between networks. Could it be that my home network takes longer to assign an IPv4 address than the office and hotel networks I used, which results in NetworkManager creating a second eth0 connection with IPv4 and IPv6 disabled? Or perhaps there is a race condition between services but network latency has nothing to do with it. In retrospect, I should have checked the contents of the log file /var/log/messages while on my work trip to see if those networks were providing my laptop with an IPv6 address in addition to an IPv4 address, i.e. check if the IPv6 address was not just a Link-Local address.

But why is NetworkManager creating any additional connection at all when NetworkManager.conf in my installation currently contains ‘no-auto-default=eth0‘? Surely this must be a bug in NetworkManager?

I have found virtually no mention of this behaviour on the Web. Debian bug report no. 755202 appears to describe the same problem. I started experiencing the problem in Gentoo Linux (~amd64 installation using OpenRC) after I upgraded NetworkManager to Version 0.9.10.0 too, and it has continued occurring up to the current version of NetworkManager (1.0.0). Fellow Gentoo Linux user Keivan Moradi’s fix (Message #79 in the aforementioned Debian bug report) did not cure the problem for me, and, anyway, my wired NIC uses a different driver (atl1c module) which appears to be stable in my installation.

CentOS bug report no. 0007435 also appears to report the same behaviour, but I’m not sure.

NetworkManager usually (but not always) creates an invalid second eth0 connection when my laptop boots and an Ethernet cable is connected to my home network. The second eth0 connection is shown as Active in plasma-nm (the KDE front-end for NetworkManager) but only has an IPv6 Link-Local connection configured (i.e. IPv4 is shown as Disabled). If I click on Disconnect in plasma-nm then this ‘rogue’ eth0 connection disappears from plasma-nm. Once the invalid IPv6 Link-Local connection has been disconnected, the valid IPv4 eth0 available connection can connect to the network and access the Internet.

I examined /var/log/messages when the invalid second eth0 connection occurs and when it doesn’t, and the invalid eth0 connection only seems to occur when NetworkManager appears to have first started earlier than syslog-ng began logging. When NetworkManager first starts after syslog-ng began logging, I can see it launches dhcpcd and acquires an IPv4 address. avahi-daemon does not seem to be the cause of the problem if I understand the log file correctly. Anyway, my experiments described below seem to exonerate the Avahi daemon. I could be misinterpreting what is going on, but that’s how it looks to my inexpert eyes. In Debian bug report no. 755202 some commenters refer to extra interfaces with names such as ‘eth0:avahi’ being listed by the ifconfig command when the problem occurs, but I wonder if that is just a side effect. Anyway, the ifconfig command does not list such interfaces in my case.

I tried the following experiments:

1. I commented out the entire contents of the file /etc/conf.d/net (the configuration file for initscripts /etc/init.d/net.*) — which I think is analogous to Debian’s /etc/network/interfaces file — but it did not stop the invalid second eth0 connection occurring.

2. I added ‘use-ipv6=no‘ and, later, ‘use-ipv4=no‘ in the file /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf but they did not stop the invalid second eth0 connection occurring.

3. I added ‘deny-interfaces=eth0‘ in the file /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf but it did not stop the invalid second eth0 connection occurring.

4. In my installation, the ‘local‘ service (launched by initscript /etc/init.d/local) has always been allocated to two runlevels: ‘default‘ and ‘nonetwork‘. I de-allocated the ‘local‘ service from the ‘nonetwork‘ runlevel but this did not stop the invalid second eth0 connection occurring.

5. In my installation, the ‘net.lo‘ service (launched by initscript /etc/init.d/net.lo) has always been allocated to the ‘boot‘ runlevel (the other net.* services, such as ‘net.eth0‘ and ‘net.wlan0‘, have never been allocated to a runlevel in my installation). I de-allocated ‘net.lo‘ from the ‘boot‘ runlevel but it did not stop the invalid eth0 connection occurring.

As experiments 4 and 5 did not stop the laptop accessing the Internet once I had deleted the invalid second eth0 connection, I have left the ‘local‘ service in the ‘default‘ runlevel only, and I have left the ‘net.lo‘ service unallocated to a runlevel.

6. Since the invalid eth0 connection is allocated an IPv6 Link-Local address rather than an IPv4 address on my home network, I tried a work-around: I disabled IPv6 system-wide by un-commenting the line ‘alias net-pf-10 off‘ in the file /etc/modprobe.d/aliases.conf. Now a second eth0 connection is no longer created, and the valid eth0 IPv4 connection I created previously connects automatically. I have not rebooted many times yet, so I don’t know if this work-around has eliminated the problem for good, but it looks promising.

Nevertheless I would like to find the root cause of the problem, rather than settling for a work-around of disabling IPv6 system-wide. Given that, when IPv6 is enabled, a second eth0 connection is sometimes not created and the ‘good’ IPv4 eth0 connection I created previously can connect, hopefully it should be possible somehow to have both IPv6 and IPv4 enabled system-wide without an invalid eth0 connection ever being created. Could NetworkManager be modified so that it does not create a connection if the DHCP client launched by NetworkManager does not obtain an IP address, for example?

This is not the end of the story, I’m sure.

Getting Google Earth in Gentoo Linux to display Panoramio photos

Well, I decided to get Panoramio photos working in Google Earth installed using the hacked ebuild I posted in April 2014 (see my post Work-around if 64-bit Google Earth crashes in Gentoo Linux).

The modification devised by user amirpli (see Comment #9 in Gentoo Bugzilla Bug Report No. 490066) does not work in my case, as explained in detail in the above-mentioned April 2014 post. I believe this is because I am using the FGLRX video driver, as I have successfully applied amirpli‘s modification in an installation on a PC that has an Intel GPU.

Here is how I got Panoramio photos to display on my main laptop running the FGLRX driver, although my fix is yet another hack: I use 32-bit libraries downloaded from the Web. It works for me, though!

Background

I am running Google Earth 7.1.2.2041 installed from a local overlay (see my above-mentioned April 2014 post) in KDE 4.14.3 under Gentoo Linux ~amd64 with the 3.17.1-gentoo-r1 kernel and FGLRX driver:

2. Download into ~/Downloads/ the following 32-bit packages from http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php and http://pkgs.org/

$ ls -la *.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 fitzcarraldo users  57976 Mar  2 00:13 libilmbase6-1.0.2-11.1.2.i586.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 fitzcarraldo users 148379 Mar  2 00:03 libilmimf6-1.6.1-alt9.i586.rpm

3. Extract into ~/Downloads/ the following 32-bit libraries from the above-mentioned .deb and .rpm packages:

$ ls -la lib*.so*
-rw-r--r-- 1 fitzcarraldo users 644568 Apr 27  2014 libfreeimage-3.15.4.so

-rw-r--r-- 1 fitzcarraldo users 657336 Jul 22  2014 libraw.so.10.0.0

4. Merge the 32-bit Google Earth package from a local overlay, using the ebuild listed in my above-mentioned April 2014 post:

# emerge -C googleearth
# rm -rf /opt/googleearth/
# emerge googleearth::local_overlay

5. Delete the four bundled Qt libs, compile the shim devised by user amirpli (see Comment #9 in Gentoo Bugzilla Bug Report No. 490066) but compile it for 32 bits (‘-m32‘), and edit the googleearth script to use the 32-bit libfreeimage.so.3 that you will copy into /opt/googleearth/ later:

# cd /opt/googleearth
# rm libQt*
# touch baifaao.cpp
# nano baifaao.cpp
# cat baifaao.cpp
/* amirpli 2013/11/28 */
#include <QtCore/QAtomicInt>
extern "C" {
        int _Z34QBasicAtomicInt_fetchAndAddOrderedPVii(QAtomicInt* a, int b) {
                return a->fetchAndAddOrdered(b);
        }
}
# gcc -I/usr/include/qt4 -O3 -m32 -fPIC --shared baifaao.cpp -o baifaao.so
# nano googleearth
# tail googleearth
}

script_path=$(FindPath $0);

cd $script_path;

export LD_PRELOAD=/opt/googleearth/libfreeimage.so.3:/opt/googleearth/baifaao.so
export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8 # Must do this if you are using non-US locale.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ./googleearth-bin "$@"

6. Copy into the Google Earth directory all the libraries downloaded and extracted in Steps 1 to 3 above, and create the necessary symlinks and permissions:

# cd /opt/googleearth
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Downloads/libfreeimage-3.15.4.so .
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Downloads/libfreeimageplus-3.15.4.so .
# ln -s libfreeimage-3.15.4.so libfreeimage.so.3
# ln -s libfreeimage.so.3 libfreeimage.so
# ln -s libfreeimageplus-3.15.4.so libfreeimageplus.so.3
# ln -s libfreeimageplus.so.3 libfreeimageplus.so
# chmod +x libfreeimage-3.15.4.so
# chmod +x libfreeimageplus-3.15.4.so
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Downloads/libjpeg.so.8.0.2 .
# ln -s libjpeg.so.8.0.2 libjpeg.so
# ln -s libjpeg.so libjpeg.so.8
# chmod +x libjpeg.so.8.0.2
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Downloads/libopenjpeg.so.1.5.2 .
# ln -s libopenjpeg.so.1.5.2 libopenjpeg.so
# ln -s libopenjpeg.so libopenjpeg.so.5
# chmod +x libopenjpeg.so.1.5.2

# ln -s libIex.so.6.0.0 libIex.so
# ln -s libIex.so libIex.so.6
# chmod +x libIex.so.6.0.0
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Downloads/libraw.so.10.0.0 .
# ln -s libraw.so.10.0.0 libraw.so
# ln -s libraw.so libraw.so.10

# ln -s libIlmThread.so libIlmThread.so.6
# chmod +x libIlmThread.so.6.0.0
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Downloads/libjasper.so.1.0.0 .
# ln -s libjasper.so.1.0.0 libjasper.so
# ln -s libjasper.so libjasper.so.1
# chmod +x libjasper.so.1.0.0

Finally, launch Google Earth from your user account, not the root user’s account:

$ googleearth

Clicking on any photo icon in Google Earth should now display Panoramio photos.

If you click on a photo icon and the frame that opens displays several thumbnails, clicking on a thumbnail may result in a white Panoramio frame without any photo and thumbnails displayed. According to user amirpli this problem occurs in KDE but not GNOME. If it does happen in your case, to view the other photos right-click on a thumbnail and select ‘Open in New Window’. This way you will be able to view any of the photos.

It’s nice to be able to see the Panoramio photos again in Linux with the FGLRX driver.

NetworkManager creates a new connection ‘eth0′ that does not work

Several months ago a new entry ‘eth0′ began appearing under ‘Available connections‘ in the KDE plasma-nm widget (the KDE GUI front-end to NetworkManager) in my Gentoo Linux installation. However, there was already an automatically-created entry ‘Wired connection 1′ for the wired interface. In the plasma-nm GUI I could see that both entries were for the same interface (eth0) and MAC address. My laptop could access the Internet via the connection ‘Wired connection 1′ as usual, but not via the new connection ‘eth0′. And if I deleted ‘eth0′ in the plasma-nm GUI, ‘Wired connection 1′ could not access the Internet until I recreated ‘eth0′ manually.

Apart from the fact that two entries for the same interface is unnecessary, it was annoying because sometimes ‘eth0′ automatically became the active connection instead of ‘Wired connection 1′, despite the fact that only ‘Wired connection 1′ had ‘Automatically connect to this network when it is available’ ticked in the plasma-nm GUI. When this happened, the network icon on the Panel showed an active connection but in fact the laptop could not connect to the Internet. However, the connection did work as expected on the occasions when ‘Wired connection 1′ automatically became the active connection or if I switched manually to ‘Wired connection 1′ via the plasma-nm GUI.

Even more strangely, if I happened to be using WiFi when no Ethernet cable was connected, very occasionally the network icon on the Panel would change from a wireless icon to a wired icon and connection to the Internet would be lost. I would then have to re-select the wireless network in order to reconnect to the Internet.

As my laptop has only one Ethernet port, and as there was previously no ‘eth0′ entry under ‘Available connections‘, initially I thought that the new entry occurred because I had recently installed a new version of udev. I have the parameter net.ifnames=0 in the kernel boot line to stop udev/eudev using the so-called Predictable Network Interface Names, and I have the following udev/eudev rules files relating to networking:

# ls -la /etc/udev/rules.d/*net*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    9 Nov 30 15:25 80-net-setup-link.rules -> /dev/null
# ls -la /lib64/udev/rules.d/*net*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  452 Nov  7 09:57 /lib64/udev/rules.d/75-net-description.rules
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1734 Jan 28 18:29 /lib64/udev/rules.d/77-mm-huawei-net-port-types.rules
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  491 Nov  7 09:57 /lib64/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  280 Jan 24 00:41 /lib64/udev/rules.d/90-network.rules

Perhaps udev (well, eudev, as I switched to using eudev after the problem started) did have something to do with the new entry, but I began to suspect that NetworkManager was the culprit. I think the problem first occurred after installing NetworkManager 0.9.10.0 last October, but it remained after I installed NetworkManager 1.0.0, until today when I made the various changes described further on.

I had merged NetworkManager 1.0.0 and preceding versions since 0.9.8.8 with USE flags -dhclient and dhcpcd, i.e. NetworkManager in my installation uses the DHCP client dhcpcd instead of dhclient. (I used to merge NetworkManager to use dhclient but found it did not work with 0.9.8.8 and later versions of NetworkManager.)

The relevant network services running in my installation are as follows, and nothing looks incorrect to me:

# rc-update show | grep -i net
       NetworkManager |      default
                local |      default nonetwork
               net.lo | boot
             netmount |      default
# rc-status | grep -i net
NetworkManager                                                    [ started ]
netmount                                                          [ started ]
# rc-update show | grep dh
# rc-status | grep dh
# rc-update -v show | grep supplicant
wpa_supplicant |
# rc-status | grep supplicant
#

NetworkManager itself launches the DHCP client, so the installation should not be configured to launch a DHCP client. Indeed the output above shows that no DHCP client service is configured to run independently of NetworkManager, and I also double-checked that multiple instances of a DHCP client are not running (they’re not):

# ps -C NetworkManager
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
 6481 ?        00:00:22 NetworkManager
# ps -C dhcpcd
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
10378 ?        00:00:00 dhcpcd
# ps -C dhclient
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
#

As far as WiFi is concerned, NetworkManager itself launches wpa_supplicant, so the installation should not be configured to launch wpa_supplicant. Indeed the output from rc-update and rc-status above shows that no wpa_supplicant service is configured to run independently of NetworkManager, and I also double-checked that multiple instances of wpa_supplicant are not running (they’re not):

# ps -C wpa_supplicant
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
 6491 ?        00:00:00 wpa_supplicant
#

So, as far as I could tell, there was nothing wrong with the non-NetworkManager side of my installation.

I thought the problem might be due to the settings in the file /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf, which contained the following:

[main]
plugins=keyfile
dhcp=dhcpcd

[ifnet]
managed=true
auto_refresh=false

[keyfile]
hostname=meshedgedx

I studied the manual pages for NetworkManager.conf:

# man NetworkManager.conf

If I understand correctly, the ifnet plug-in is Gentoo-specific (see References 3, 4 and 5 further on). The entries under [ifnet] in my NetworkManager.conf file were redundant in any case because the ifnet plug-in was not included in the plugins list under [main], so I deleted the entire [ifnet] section. There is no mention of the ifnet plug-in on the NetworkManager.conf manual page or in the Gentoo Linux Wiki article on NetworkManager, and a cursory look in the Gentoo ebuild for NetworkManager 1.0.0 clearly indicates the ifnet plug-in is broken. See, for example, the following comment in the ebuild:

# ifnet plugin always disabled until someone volunteers to actively
# maintain and fix it

and the following warning messages in the ebuild if the user has included ifnet in plugin=<plugin list> in NetworkManager.conf:

ewarn "Ifnet plugin is now disabled because of it being unattended"
ewarn "and unmaintained for a long time, leading to some unfixed bugs"
ewarn "and new problems appearing. We will now use upstream 'keyfile'"
ewarn "plugin."
ewarn "Because of this, you will likely need to reconfigure some of"
ewarn "your networks. To do this you can rely on Gnome control center,"
ewarn "nm-connection-editor or nmtui tools for example once updated"
ewarn "NetworkManager version is installed."
ewarn "You seem to use 'ifnet' plugin in ${EROOT}etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf"
ewarn "Since it won't be used, you will need to stop setting ifnet plugin there."

I modified NetworkManager.conf to contain the following:

[main]
plugins=keyfile
dhcp=dhcpcd
no-auto-default=eth0

[keyfile]
hostname=meshedgedx

Note that the ifnet plug-in was not specified in the plugins list in the [main] section of my previous NetworkManager.conf so it was not the cause of my problem, but I hoped that adding no-auto-default=eth0 to NetworkManager.conf would solve the problem. I deleted the ‘Wired connection 1′ entry from the plasma-nm GUI, ticked ‘Automatically connect to this network when it is available’ for the ‘eth0′ entry and made sure that option was not ticked for any of the other entries under ‘Available connections‘, then rebooted. There was no longer an entry ‘Wired connection 1′ in the plasma-nm widget GUI, just an entry for ‘eth0′, and the installation connected automatically to the wired network and I could access the Internet, but did not reconnect to the wired network if I removed and reinserted the Ethernet cable when also connected to a wireless network. So I was not home and dry yet.

I have read on various Web sites that NetworkManager prefers wired connections over wireless connections. I assume this is because NetworkManager sets a higher metric for the wired connection.

I am on a work trip at the moment and cannot use a dynamic wired connection, only a static wired connection, but I can see that NetworkManager 1.0.0 does set a higher-priority metric for wired connections:

# # Now with both dynamic wireless and static wired:
# ip route show
default via 10.90.21.1 dev eth0  proto static  metric 100
default via 10.96.0.1 dev wlan0  proto static  metric 600
10.90.21.0/24 dev eth0  proto kernel  scope link  src 10.90.21.112  metric 100
10.96.0.0/16 dev wlan0  proto kernel  scope link  src 10.96.87.86
10.96.0.0/16 dev wlan0  proto kernel  scope link  src 10.96.87.86  metric 303
127.0.0.0/8 dev lo  scope host
127.0.0.0/8 via 127.0.0.1 dev lo
192.0.2.1 via 10.96.0.1 dev wlan0  proto dhcp  metric 600
#

10.90.21.1 is the IP address of the gateway for the wired connection, and 10.90.21.112 is the IP address of my laptop’s wired interface. The smaller the metric value, the higher the routing priority. Notice that the metric for the eth0 interface is 100 whereas the metric for the wlan0 interface is 600, so it does appear that NetworkManager favours a wired connection over a wireless connection when both are active.

After doing all the above, I came across Debian bug report no. 755202: network-manager: keeps creating and using new connection “eth0″ that does not work which appears to be exactly what I was experiencing. Various people posted solutions that worked in their particular circumstances, so I am none the wiser. Gentoo user Keivan Moradi posted message no. 79 on that bug report, about a warning message he found in the NetworkManager log file regarding a file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0, and he then deleted the latter file. I found the same message in /var/log/messages:

# grep networkmanager /var/log/messages
Feb  9 04:10:05 localhost NetworkManager[10355]: <warn>      error in connection /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0: invalid connection: connection.type: property is missing
Feb 11 15:53:05 localhost NetworkManager[13143]: <warn>      error in connection /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0: invalid connection: connection.type: property is missing

The file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0 also existed in my installation, so I also deleted it. It was a zero-length file and I do not know if it had anything to do with my problem:

# ls -la /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0
-rw------- 1 root root 0 Jan 20 00:09 /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0
# rm /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0
#

Anyway, the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/.keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0 has not reappeared since I deleted it.

Keivan Moradi had ‘id=Wired‘ under [connection] in the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0, and he decided to change the name of the file from ‘eth0‘ to ‘Wired‘. However, in my case the file name and the id in the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0 are both ‘eth0‘:

# cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0
[ethernet]
mac-address=70:5A:B6:3E:C1:8A
mac-address-blacklist=

[connection]
id=eth0
uuid=cb3d5786-f947-44b8-92f7-8471fc94c568
type=ethernet
permissions=
secondaries=

[ipv6]
method=ignore
dns-search=

[ipv4]
method=auto
dns-search=

I had already deleted and recreated the connection ‘eth0′ in the plasma-nm GUI by the time I checked the contents of the directory /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ so I do not know if the original file name and id were the same. I had also already deleted the connection ‘Wired connection 1′ in the plasma-nm GUI by the time I checked the contents of the directory; presumably files for connections ‘Wired connection 1′ and ‘eth0′ both existed in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ before then. I do not know why the zero-length file .keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0 was created, but no further files have appeared in the directory since I deleted the connection ‘Wired connection 1′ and the file .keep_net-misc_networkmanager-0.

Keivan Moradi was also previously using a buggy r8169 kernel module (Realtek Ethernet hardware) and switched to using the r8168 module, but I am using a Qualcomm Atheros AR8131 Gigabit Ethernet card and an Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 card, so that part of his problem cannot be a factor in my case.

Anyway, as I wrote earlier, I no longer have two connection entries for the wired interface, and NetworkManager no longer creates automatically a second connection entry for the wired interface. And now if I am already connected to a wireless network, NetworkManager connects/reconnects automatically to a wired network with the ‘Automatically connect’ option ticked. So it looks like my problem is completely solved, although I reserve judgement until I have been able to use the laptop in my home network (which has the same router for both wired and wireless connections, whereas the wired network and wireless network are separate networks in the office in which I am now working).

Conclusion

If you had the patience to read all the above, I am impressed! If you also understood it, I am doubly impressed!

To cut a long story short, if you are experiencing a similar problem to mine, I recommend you do the following:

  1. Check that your network driver is reliable. You can search the Web to see if other users have experienced problems with the same driver you are using.

  2. Make sure the contents of NetworkManager.conf are correct. Read the NetworkManager.conf man page and the GNOME Wiki page on NetworkManager settings to find out what options are available.

  3. Delete all the files (i.e. including hidden files) in the directory /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ and recreate your connections via either the NetworkManager GUI (e.g. plasma-nm in KDE or nm-applet in GNOME) or NetworkManager TUI (nmtui).

UPDATE (March 10, 2015): Well, I was right to reserve judgement until I was able to use my laptop with my home network. I am now back at home and an Ethernet cable is plugged into my laptop’s RJ45 socket. Even with the changes I made, when I boot the laptop NetworkManager sometimes (but not always) has two connections named ‘eth0′, one of them the ‘Active connection’ (but not able to connect to the Internet) and the other an ‘Available connection’. In this situation the wired network icon on the Panel has a yellow question mark superimposed. If I delete the ‘eth0′ active connection and use the other ‘eth0′, the latter works as expected and I have no trouble connecting to the Internet. In Debian bug report no. 755202 (see the link further up) user Frederik Himpe added a comment on March 4, 2015 that he is also still experiencing this problem and “It looks like there is a race somewhere, causing the network interface to be brought up before Network Manager is started, and this prevents correct configuration by NM”. So the problem is still unresolved. Hmm … I wonder if udev does have something to do with it after all.

UPDATE (March 12, 2015): The problem persists. I disabled use of IPv6 in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf to see if the Avahi daemon has something to do with the problem, but that made no difference. Later I also disabled use of IPv4 in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf, but that made no difference either. So it looks like the Avahi daemon is not the culprit. Checking via the plasma-nm GUI I notice that the ‘rogue’ eth0 Active connection has IPv4 disabled and IPv6 Link-Local enabled. So why is NetworkManager creating a second eth0 connection just for IPv6 Link-Local? And why on Earth is NetworkManager creating any additional connection at all when NetworkManager.conf contains no-auto-default=eth0? Surely this must be a bug in NetworkManager 1.0.0?

UPDATE (March 17, 2015): I have been investigating the problem further: see my latest blog post for details.

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Prologue

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree: 1.16.3-r1. I updated my entire installation (I ’emerged world’, in Gentoo parlance). The package eselect-opengl was one of various other packages updated as well (it was updated to Version 1.3.1-r1). Fortunately I scan the Gentoo Forums regularly and noticed the threads ‘new x11 update breaks glx‘ and ‘After xorg-server-1.16.2.901-r1 update 3D stopped working‘, so I was forewarned that a "Files" section is not allowed in more than one X Windows configuration file if an installation has more than one (e.g. /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf). The eselect-opengl ebuild was subsequently bumped to 1.3.1-r2 to display a warning to users regarding this restriction.

I’m using ~amd64 multilib and the FGLRX driver (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 GPU). Before updating, my laptop’s installation had a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and no /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory.

Before updating I cleaned up a few broken symlinks (indicated by flashing red text in Konsole) relating to the FGLRX driver — presumably left over from previous updates several years ago judging by the file dates — that I found during a cursory search:

# ls -la /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/extensions/
# rm /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/extensions/fglrx-libglx.so
# rm /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
# ls -la /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/
# rm /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/FGL.renamed.libglx.so
# rm /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/fglrx-libglx.so

(There may have been other broken symlinks relating to the FGLRX driver and GLX, but I didn’t look further.)

Then I updated all packages using the Portage command ‘emerge -uvDN --keep-going world‘ as usual. After the update was complete, the contents of the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf included the following two consecutive lines:

Section "Files"
EndSection

and there is a new directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ which contained a single file 20opengl.conf with only five lines:

Section "Files"
        ModulePath "/usr/lib32/xorg/modules"
        ModulePath "/usr/lib64/opengl/ati"
        ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Heeding posts in the aforementioned two Gentoo Forums threads I deleted the above-mentioned two lines in xorg.conf and I also deleted the first ModulePath (the one with ‘lib32‘) in 20opengl.conf. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. (I subsequently discovered it is not necessary to delete that ModulePath in my case, as there are no longer any files in /usr/lib32/xorg/modules and its subdirectories in my case.)

So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.

AIGLX error message

The contents of log file Xorg.0.log included the following error message:

(EE) AIGLX error: failed to open /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so, error[/usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

Despite the error message, AIGLX was working, but I resolved to get rid of the message anyway by creating a symlink for the missing file mentioned in the message:

# ls /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules
extensions
# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/

685665 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Jan 22 22:29 ..

Now there is no error message and functionality has not been affected:

# grep -i GLX /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Touchpad

In looking through /var/log/Xorg.0.log I noticed some messages (not all contiguous) relating to the touchpad which indicated there were other problems:

The touchpad was working fine, but I didn’t understand why the synaptics module was being loaded twice, then unloaded. Also, the message about an undetectable ‘protocol’ indicated a problem.

Now, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, previously my installation did not have the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and there was only the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Below is what xorg.conf contained before I updated:

The only mention of a ‘protocol’ in xorg.conf was the line:

Option	    "Protocol" "auto-dev"

Searching the Web soon showed me that auto-dev is obsolete (Debian Bug report #649003 – xserver-xorg-input-synaptics: Option “Protocol” “auto-dev” does not work anymore – documentation needs fixing), so I simply deleted that line from xorg.conf. Another error message eliminated, but several more to go.

I knew that, since Version 1.8 (I believe that was the release), X Windows allows the use of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf files instead of, or as well as, /etc/X11/xorg.conf as a means of configuring X Windows (see e.g. Gentoo Xorg-server 1.8 Upgrade Guide).

As my latest installation update had resulted in the creation of the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, I decided to move the touchpad configuration from the xorg.conf file to a new file in that directory, and therefore I created the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf containing the following:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
        Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
        Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "on"
        Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"
        Option "CircularScrolling" "on"
        Option "CircScrollTrigger" "0"
        Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "40"
        Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "8"
        Option "CoastingSpeed" "0"
        Option "FingerLow" "35"
        Option "FingerHigh" "40"
EndSection

However the log file Xorg.0.log still contained messages such as the following:

[    41.535] (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "evdev touchpad catchall"

Notice that I had named the InputClass "touchpad" in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf, not "evdev touchpad catchall", so I began to wonder if X Windows configuration files existed in other directories and were also being parsed by X Windows. I searched and found three in the directory /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/:

# ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
10-evdev.conf  10-quirks.conf  50-synaptics.conf

These three files contained, respectively, the following:

Looking at the InputClass section names and the messages in Xorg.0.log, the penny dropped: X Windows uses all the configuration files it finds in the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/,  /etc/X11/ and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directories. I had not realised this before; I had simply assumed X Windows only uses configuration files in the latter two directories (I should have looked more closely in Xorg.0.log, as it mentions /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/). So I did the following:

1.  Deleted the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf (my laptop does not have a clickpad, so I don’t need the sections relating to a clickpad anyway).

2.  Modified the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf to contain the parts of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf that stop X Windows assuming the touchpad is a mouse (udev detects it as a mouse in addition to detecting it as a touchpad):

 
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"

        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
        Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
        Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "on"
        Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"
        Option "CircularScrolling" "on"
        Option "CircScrollTrigger" "0"
        Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "40"
        Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "8"
        Option "CoastingSpeed" "0"
        Option "FingerLow" "35"
        Option "FingerHigh" "40"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad ignore duplicates"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
        Option "Ignore" "on"
EndSection

Notice that I also changed the Identifier of the first section from “touchpad” to “touchpad catchall”, although I could have left it as it was.

Note that the following pair of messages in the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log do not worry me, as I believe they indicate that an InputClass section named "touchpad ignore duplicates" in an X Windows configuration file made X Windows ignore udev when it detected the touchpad again, this time as a mouse instead of a touchpad. As X Windows has already loaded the synaptics module for the touchpad device /dev/input/event5 (it could be a different event number in your case), it is therefore correct to make the synaptics driver ignore /dev/input/mouse*.

[    41.581] (II) config/udev: Adding input device SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (/dev/input/mouse0)
[    41.581] (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Ignoring device from InputClass "touchpad ignore duplicates"

3.  Moved the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf and edited it to contain the following:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev pointer catchall"
        MatchIsPointer "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
        MatchIsTablet "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev touchscreen catchall"
        MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Note that I removed the section "evdev touchpad catchall" because I believe its purpose is already covered by the section "touchpad catchall" in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf.

Actually, as my laptop does not have a tablet connected and neither does it have a touchscreen, I could also have removed the last two sections, but I left them in as they would do no harm.

4.  Checked in the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log which modules loaded by /etc/X11/xorg.conf are loaded anyway, and therefore do not need to be included in xorg.conf:

$ grep extmod /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[ 30.773] (II) LoadModule: "extmod"
[ 30.773] (II) Module "extmod" already built-in

$ grep i2c /var/log/Xorg.0.log

[ 35.421] (II) LoadModule: "ddc"
[ 35.421] (II) Module "ddc" already built-in

$ grep vbe /var/log/Xorg.0.log

[ 35.073] (II) Module vbe: vendor="X.Org Foundation"

$ grep \"dri\" /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[ 31.175] (II) LoadModule: "dri"
[ 31.175] (II) Module "dri" already built-in

$ grep glx /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[ 30.775] (II) "glx" will be loaded. This was enabled by default and also specified in the config file.
[ 31.175] (II) LoadModule: "glx"
[ 31.175] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/opengl/ati/extensions/libglx.so
[ 31.193] (II) Module glx: vendor="Advanced Micro Devices, Inc."

The module vbe was the only one being loaded exclusively because of a Load command in the xorg.conf file.

5.  Edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf to: a) remove the unecessary loading of those modules that are already being loaded; b) remove the section relating to the touchpad, as I had moved it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Main Layout"
        Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Module"
        Load  "vbe"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option      "AllowMouseOpenFail" "true"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        Option      "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
        Option      "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
        Option      "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
        Device      "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Monitor     "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth    24
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
        Mode         0666
EndSection

According to the xorg.conf(5) manual page:

Option “AllowMouseOpenFail”boolean

This tells the mousedrv(4) and vmmouse(4) drivers to not report failure if the mouse device can’t be opened/initialised. It has no effect on the evdev(4) or other drivers. Default: false.

so I left the section ServerFlags in xorg.conf, as the global X.Org Server option "AllowMouseOpenFail" does no harm. I could have deleted it, though.

6.  I left /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-quirks.conf as it was, because there is nothing in it that relates to the specific hardware in my laptop. I could have just deleted the file.

Outcome

Now that I have removed the superflous X windows configuration files with some duplicate sections, /var/log/Xorg.0.log no longer contains duplicate messages relating to the touchpad and evdev. As I have also removed superflous module-loading commands from xorg.conf, there are also no longer any messages regarding already-loaded modules or the unloading of a module. And my removal of the obsolete auto-dev protocol option also eliminated the error message regarding an undetectable protocol and the PreInit error message. The file Xorg.0.log in my installation now looks like this:

The Xorg.0.log file is now cleaner, and I noticed a tiny improvement (I estimate a couple of seconds) in the loading of X Windows when the laptop starts up. Although there has been no change in video and touchpad functionality as far as I can tell, tidying up and removing redundant and incorrect X Windows configuration lines was a worthwhile exercise as I learned something in the process.

You will notice that no keyboard layout and variant are specified in any X Windows configuration file listed above. This laptop has an English (UK) keyboard layout, but sometimes I use it with external USB keyboards having English (UK), English (US), Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish (Spain) layouts. As the laptop runs KDE, I had already configured KDE to allow me to toggle between the four keyboard layouts and so did not need to configure X Windows for the keyboard layout. However, on machines running Linux with desktop environments that do not have such a facility I add a file with a name such as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/15-keyboard.conf containing the following to suit my particular requirements:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "yes"
        Option "XkbLayout" "gb,us,br,es"
        Option "XkbVariant" "pc104"
        Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
EndSection

As the last option suggests, pressing Alt+Shift would toggle between the layouts specified.
