Flickr: unable to delete pictures
« on: November 08, 2010, 04:56:48 pm »
When I attempt to delete a Flickr picture by selecting it and then pressing the delete button, the picture does not go away.

I found the following entry in the DCERouter.log after trying to delete a picture:
Code: [Select]

/home/flickr and all of its subdirectories and files have root for both owner and group permissions. Should the owner and group permissions be something else or should the program doing the deletion have elevated permissions?

The "So Much Trouble" picture needs to go away before the gals in the house skin me alive.

Open a trac ticket (http://svn.linuxmce.org)

I have created a ticket (http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/893#preview) for the issue.

For the time being, can I just delete the file by doing a 'sudo rm <filename>' or will that cause problems with LinuxMCE?

Thanks, Tom

It is okay to do that.
