Description Martin Krauskopf 2005-09-20 09:59:05 UTC
Probably the culprit is "-clean-jnlp-userdir" target.

1) Create suite called e.g. suite1
2) Suite Properties -> Basic Branding -> check the branding checkbox
3) mkdir ~/.suite1
4) Shift-F11

~/.suite1 is moved to ~/.suite1.bak

Please don't try to call your suite vim, kde, gnome, gnome2, java, fluxbox,
mplayer, emacs, xine, xmms, gconf.... The result (probably better word is
_feedback_) could be *very* surprising ;)

Do you have any better idea how to solve issue #64249?
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2005-09-21 01:37:25 UTC
Could perhaps change default name of userdir for both JNLP and regular app to
e.g. "~/.nb-app-$suitename"?

Sounds good and also solves my original problem:
I have an suite e.g. called "jvim". I run the application, exit, S-F11, run
again, .jvim is "backuped".
So that should definitelly solve the problem also for non-OS-conflicting names.

Rare (5.0-beta-waiver) to be dangerous (P1)

It seems that only jnlp part was fixed. Please fix or evaluate also zipped
distribution case.
(lowering priority --> imediate deleting has gone)
Comment 8 Martin Krauskopf 2005-12-03 07:46:25 UTC
Probably just about fixing app.conf?

Comment 9 Jesse Glick 2005-12-03 19:07:05 UTC

1. Zipped apps are not run directly by any Ant targets.

2. The default userdir already includes the /dev suffix so it is unlikely to
interfere even with ~/.gnome or whatever.

3. Unlike in the case of JNLP, the clean target does not remove the ZIP app
userdir - that, I think, being the original complaint in this bug.

Yup, clear. Wanted to clarify dev@openide thread. Thanks.
