That exact (python-xdg) error has been discussed here in the forum, and as far as I know has been fixed in later versions, so… I suspect the antiX -provided utility packages installed on the affected 19.3 system are not the latest (fixed) versions.February 20, 2021 at 8:25 pm #54674MemberDzhigitFebruary 20, 2021 at 8:27 pm #54675MemberDzhigit
When I run with –no-icons, all of the errors go away except for “Unable to to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused”, which is shown twice.February 20, 2021 at 8:31 pm #54676Memberskidoo
v— seems to be for an unrelated issue [so removed, to avoid further confusion]

The solution you posted seems to be for an unrelated issue. Currently, I am getting these errors from desktop-menu and desktop-defaults-run.

My mistake, I uploaded the screenshot with desktop-defaults-run running as root. But when it is run as user demo, I have the same error.
EDIT: Actually, it is different

Oh excellent, thank you for the testing using net/core.
The desktop-menu script not finding the icons is likely because gtk3 is not available.
apt install python3-gi libgtk-3-0 libgtk-3-common
The desktop-defaults-run error is because there is no desktop code available ($DESKTOP_CODE or ~/.desktop-session/desktop-code.[0-9])
A more graceful error should be made for this.
There also appears to be no valid X display running. The programs should probably bow out right away if this is the case…
I am guessing this is because you are trying (wanting?) to run programs sand boxed in a qemu environment.
What is the output of the command “env”?

I already installed those python gtk packages manually due to past experience.

I don’t know how, but suddenly, desktop-menu is now working perfectly. The desktop-defaults-run error disappeared, but it still just prints the name of the program and doesn’t actually launch it.February 21, 2021 at 3:56 am #54703MemberDzhigit
well after looking at the desktop-defaults-run script, I figured it out. please add gksu as a dependency of desktop-defaults-antix.February 27, 2021 at 7:45 pm #55091MemberDzhigitFebruary 28, 2021 at 7:18 pm #55177MemberDzhigit
Everything is currently working perfectly with wpasupplicant.February 28, 2021 at 9:24 pm #55194Forum AdminBitJam
All this means that Live architecture developed for antiX is more general and can be applied to other distros as well, along with it’s superior functionality.
Is this not something that Linux community could be made aware of such superiority of antiX Live architecture as applicable also to their respective distros?
Or rather it should be kept restricted to antiX and only for the benefit of antiX?
As the lead live antiX developer I want to thank you for all your kind words. In addition, I greatly appreciate your evangelical spirit and I encourage you to keep it up. If there are changes to the live system that will make porting easier, PLMK. One thing on my todo list for antiX-21 is to make the live shutdown compatible with systemd.
I know dolphin_oracle worked on porting our live system to other distros a few years ago starting with making a snapshot. AFAIK, he had mixed results and did not make his results public. Again, I’m delighted by your efforts. I’m happy to make changes if they would help. I’d love to see these efforts eventually become part of the official documentation for MX and antiX. Perhaps called something like “How to Port our Live System to other Distros”.
In some ways anti and I were fortunate to be able to develop the live system in relative obscurity for many years.
