EbonJaeger OK this is from Josh's article:
"First, replace your existing budgie-panel with one managed by
gdb and pipe the output into the referenced file:
gdb budgie-panel 2&>1 | tee ~/budgie-panel-gdb.txt
Once you're in
gdb, you will be presented with a prompt showing (gdb). Type
r --replace and press ENTER / Return. It should replace your budgie-panel."
This is as far as I got. Nothing got replaced. I installed everything. Ebon, you suggested an additional package
budgie-trash-applet-dbginfo but I have no access to this in my eopkg. Another repo?
After install I tried:
gdb budgie-panel 2&>1 | tee ~/budgie-panel-gdb.txt. the terminal just hung up forever.
So I re-read "once you're in gdb" so I launch gdb.
gdb budgie-panel 2&>1 | tee ~/budgie-panel-gdb.txt.
gdb is unhappy that
gdb was in the command.
so I typed
budgie-panel 2&>1 | tee ~/budgie-panel-gdb.txt.
so I just assumed I created a text file somewhere (with no proof) and advanced into gdb again with "type
-r --replace" and hit enter. It should replace your budgie panel."
Looked up recent *.txt files and I failed creating that file as well.
I installed the two packages recommended to debug this app.
I completely failed at debugging.
Where did I go wrong?
