Description Artur 2017-01-12 15:34:54 UTC
Description of problem:

system-switch-mail does not work in text console like it was in previous Fedora releases.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

system-switch-mail-1.0.1-10.fc25.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install system-switch-mail (note: don't install system-switch-mail-gnome)
2. run "system-switch-mail"

Actual results:

Error accessing /usr/share/system-switch-mail/switchmail_gui.py: No such file or directory

Expected results:

Console version of system-switch-mail should be displayed. I don't see any information in changelog, that tui is no longer supported.

Comment 4 Artur 2017-02-01 09:26:34 UTC
Unfortunatelly I get different error now:

[root@hostname ~]# system-switch-mail
Authentication is needed to run system-switch-mail as super user
/usr/share/system-switch-mail/switchmail_tui.py: line 19: import: command not found
/usr/share/system-switch-mail/switchmail_tui.py: line 21: SWITCHMAILDIR: command not found
/usr/share/system-switch-mail/switchmail_tui.py: line 24: syntax error near unexpected token `"/usr/lib/rhs/python"'
/usr/share/system-switch-mail/switchmail_tui.py: line 24: `    sys.path.append("/usr/lib/rhs/python")'

There is missig "#!/bin/python" in the first line of switchmail_tui.py or it should be started as
"/bin/python /usr/share/system-switch-mail/switchmail_tui.py"

Also (not so impotant) - the warning about authentication should be suppressed if the command is run by a super user.

system-switch-mail-1.0.1-11.fc25 has been pushed to the Fedora 25 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

As I wrote in comment #4 - it is still imperfect.

Comment 7 Than Ngo 2017-04-28 09:30:11 UTC
