Vpi-demos install error

Setting up vpi1-demos (1.0.15) …
ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘/usr/share/ubuntu:/usr/local/share/:/usr/share/:/var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/vpi1_demos’: No such file or directory

how to solve this issue?

looks like the deb script below cause this error.



    ln -sf $vpi_apps_dir/demos $xdgdatadirs/applications/vpi1_demos

because the XDG_DATA_DIRS on my environment is /usr/share/ubuntu:/usr/share:/usr/local/share
line : ln -sf $vpi_apps_dir/demos $xdgdatadirs/applications/vpi1_demos
will extend to : ln -sf /opt/nvidia/vpi1/share/applications/demos /usr/share/ubuntu:/usr/share:/usr/local/share/applications/vpi1_demos

this may need to be fixed in the package, I am curious am I the only one face this issue??


Seems the script force the xdgdatadirs to be /usr/share.
So it should create a symbolic link in /usr/share/vpi1.

We are going to double-check this issue.
Will share more information with you later.



We have verified the installation for VPI x86 pacakge.
The installation works well on both Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 host.
