Auto-connection requests for jdownloader2

  • JDownloader requires the mount-observe interface to check whether enough disk space is available. If the interface is not connected, the check will fail and JDownloader won’t start.
  • JDownloader has an option to shut down the computer once all downloads have been completed. To accomplish this task, the shutdown interface is required.

+1 for auto-connecting mount-observe since the access is required for core functionality of the software.

As for shutdown, can you describe the api the snap is using to shutdown the system? Is it a DBus call org.freedesktop.login1.Manager as the non-root user?

No, it’s a D-Bus call to org.freedesktop.PowerManagement.Shutdown. Looks like this won’t work anyway, therefore I withdraw my auto-connection request for the shutdown interface.

@reviewers - can others vote on just mount-observe?

+1 for auto-connecting mount-observe from me, too.

+1 for auto-connection of mount-observe for jdownloader2 from me as well.

3 votes for, 0 against, granted auto-connect of mount-observe for jdownloader2 - this is now live.
