I can't reproduce it yet, but I'm probably not making the right steps.
Anyway, I've looked at the code and the problem seems to be in
src/vinagre-bookmarks.c, line 536. For some reason, at that point
~/.local/share/vinagre wasn't created for you, and g_file_set_contents() doesn't
create parent folders, so it gives you the "No such file or directory error.",
and that's why making the directory before starting Vinagre fixes it for you.
The steps I've followed to try to reproduce this were:
- Remove ~/.local/share/vinagre
- Start vinagre
- Connect to localhost
By this point, ~/.local/share/vinagre already exists.
- Save the bookmark
The bookmark is correctly saved.
- Quit vinagre.
Are they correct?
I want to reproduce this if possible to try to see if there's another bug in the
code. If not, I think the solution would be to call g_mkdir_with_parents()
