I could add a tmpfiles thing that sets permissions to something like 600 maybe?

@fryfrog All files that are not executable are configuration files.

IPMIView creates the configuration files as world read and writable, which includes those files containing your secrets. It creates those file in the directory that the script and java files are in. That is the reason I wrote the script in my last comment that copies all relevant executable files into ~/local/share/ipmiview. It makes sure that your secrets aren't world readable.

@fryfrog the following are the config files that should be placed in backup=:

@Thermi: What file is the settings file? I can just put it in the backup= array and it'll get .pacnew'd instead.

I was fed up with every update nuking my settings, so I made a script that copies the executable files into ~/.local/share/ipmiview and handles upgrades satisfiably. The setting files in your home directory are kept with that approach. The script is available in a Github gist[1]

Sorry for the delay, I've made that change. Let me know how it turns out! :)

Hi ifdog, I have same issue with File missing in KVM, and fixed it with adding this line


in the /usr/share/applications/ipmiview.desktop

I think, that when you launch the ipmiview from ipmiview.desktop it run ipmiview from

$ which ipmiview /usr/bin/ipmiview

with default path of executed binary(/usr/bin/) but in /usr/bin absent the iKVM files like iKVM and iKVM.jar. We need to change the working dir for application in ipmiview.desktop file, or add something in the /usr/bin/ipmiview, but i prefer the modified ipmiview.desktop file.

File missing in KVM too.

@Ashark, I don't actually use this so I'm not sure. If you'd like to be co-maintainer and give it some work, that'd be groovy.

I cannot open KVM Console. Getting Error File missing, can not open KVM But with just unpacked archive and executing ipmiview from there do not have such problem. Maybe you removed some needed files in PKGBUILD?
