Description Yil-Kyu Kang 1999-10-04 22:20:57 UTC
When selecting NCFTP from "gnome panel" -> internet -> nfctp it does not work. Nothing happens.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-04 22:27:59 UTC
fixed in ncftp-3.0.beta21-1, in the next Raw Hide release.
Comment 2 Jan Carlson 2000-02-06 21:37:59 UTC
The fix did not appear in Rawhide ncftp-3.0beta21-1.i386.rpm or ncftp-3.0beta21-2.i386.rpm. Both still have Terminal=1 in ncftp.desktop. Because Gnome interprets 1 as false, no window appears, and ncftp complains into ~/.xsession-errors. OFFENDING FILE: = /etc/X11/applnk/Internet/ncftp.desktop POSSIBLE SOLUTION: replace Terminal=1 with Terminal=true TO VERIFY THIS BUG, DO rpm -Uvh --allfiles ncftp*.rpm. Then try to run ncftp from the Gnome|Internet menu. Otherwise rpm will not replace your current ncftp.desktop. It's a config file. This is the only remaining .desktop file that contains Terminal=1, after applying all RH6.1 updates and Gotchas fixes. Lots of them contain Terminal=0. Gnome might need to understand 1 as an alternate for true, but it doesn't in RH6.1 with all updates and gotchas fixes.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-07 15:42:59 UTC
I believe the current fixes are in the GNOME and KDE libraries, in that they now both understand the same syntax.
Comment 4 Jan Carlson 2000-02-08 01:10:59 UTC
All my rpms here are upgraded to the current Rawhide, but the "Terminal=1" in ncftp is still interpreted as Terminal=false and ncftp won't come up. Maybe in the next Rawhide?
