Description Nicolas Mailhot 2008-02-25 15:11:36 EST
Description of problem:

If I type totem <enter> in the gnome mini commander applet a totem-sized window
with a blank popup flashes open then dies

Starting totem from gnome-terminal or the main menu OTOH works

Please fix this regression - I had a nice totem /dev/video0 mini-commander
shortcut I used a lot before

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

totem-2.21.93-2.fc9.x86_64

How reproducible:

Always
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2008-02-26 06:12:31 EST
Probably a crash or an assertion. Check ~/.xsession-errors to see if there are
warnings caused by totem. Also make sure to use liboil-0.3.13-2.fc9, -1.fc9 had
a known crasher.

Nothing there

My rawhide is up-to-date :p
As I wrote totem only commits suicide when launched from mini-commander
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-03-04 23:37:18 EST
Here is what totem reports before it commits suicide:

No value set for `/apps/totem/backend'
/usr/bin/totem: line 50: exec: totem-: not found
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-03-04 23:41:47 EST
Actually, it reports the same when started from a terminal...

That'd be with 2.21.95. The package was completely broken. Nicolas, could you
test with 2.23.0. And try to get some debugging information, I really can't do
much without anything to work from.
Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-03-05 08:34:32 EST
I can't get debugging information when no error or warning ends up in the logs.
The test case is really simple (launch totem from the mini-commander applet), so
unless it works on a rawhide box located near you, why don't you look at it
directly?
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2008-03-05 11:28:35 EST
Works fine here with 2.23.0. So I assume it is fixed.
Please reopen if you still see the issue with that version.
