I am using xubuntu with the xfce interface. I have a problem when I want to save my Netlify data and synchronize my site.
Data cannot be saved. I don’t have a specific error message.
Do you have a tip?
thank you very much in advanceJanuary 14, 2021 at 12:13 pm#5008Tomasz Dziuda
If I understand there is a problem with saving access data – please try to check if your linux have dependencies installed according to the requirements of the keytar module (used to safely store passwords): https://github.com/atom/node-keytar#on-linux

I had the same issue with Kubuntu 20.04LTS and Publii v.0.37.x, which in reality will probably happen to any one who is not using GNOME as desktop on is Linux
Even if I execute
npm install keytar and install libsecret-1-dev and reboot
I had to install gnome-keyring as mentioned here: https://forum.getpublii.com/topic/unable-to-save-my-server-setting-even-with-a-new-site/#post-3156March 4, 2021 at 1:13 am#5285JOduMonT
to prevent messages like these:
- and probably more less explicit
I would like to propose a change in the documentation and/or it could be mentioned in a GitHub Issue Template
to say something like: Linux require libsecret but also gnome-keyring which is not by default is you use XFCE, KDE or any other DE not base on GNOME.
