Subject: [devuan-dev] bug#745: dbus-x11: Several processes in Plasma session including krunner have / as current working directory
Package: dbus-x11
Version: 1.14.6-1devuan1
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-Cc: Martin@???

Dear Maintainer,

I also reported this to Debian as https://bugs.debian.org/1032368

What follows is the text I sent to Debian BTS:

Like this:

…proc# ls -ld $(pidof krunner)/cwd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 USER USER 0 10. Feb 14:26 15116/cwd -> /
…proc# ls -ld $(pidof plasmashell)/cwd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 USER USER 0 10. Feb 14:27 9191/cwd -> /home/USER

This is with /bin/sh pointing to Dash, the user shell is Z-Shell, but I
have also seen this on systems where the user shell is Bash.

According to pstree krunner's parent process is runit which of course
has current working directory pointing to /.

Plasmashell instead is going like this



This is reported with KDE as:

krunner starts applications with cwd "/" with init system other than
systemd (openrc, runit, ...)


This is with Devuan Ceres with Runit and Elogind. I am reporting this
with Debian as well, cause I think it is an issue in Debian as well and
Debian users with other init systems can benefit from a solution. In case
you are not willing to look into this issue please tell, so another
solution or workaround can be found. I will also report this in Devuan.

Using X11 still. With Wayland this issue does not happen. But there are
too many other issues with Wayland still.


% cat /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.kde.krunner.service
[D-BUS Service]

(file is from package plasma-workspace)

KRunner is not started at all.

Also I can at least confirm that the current working directory of
and kiod5 is also /. I bet those are started by the corresponding
service files in /usr/share/dbus-1/services.

So it appears to me that this has something do to with how dbus-x11 is
DBUS services. What also points at this that the issue does not happen
with a Wayland

For Systemd based systems Plasma uses Systemd service files for startup,
dbus-x11 is not involved.
