Email from scan program crashes evo
Last modified: 2013-09-03 02:40:42 EDT
Description of problem:
The email option for disposition of a scan in simple-scan-3.8.0-1.fc19.x86_64 causes evolution to crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure evolution is your default mail client
2. Scan a document with simple-scan
3. Under simple-scan's File menu, select 'email'
Compose window opens with scan attached; evolution crashes.
Compose window opens with scan attached; evolution doesn't crash.
Not sure if this is a simple-scan issue or an evolution issue. Filed under evolution because that's what actually crashes.
The crash does not produce an abrt report, for some reason.
Thanks for a bug report. I see it constructs the execution command like:
at least for me, when I do not have any real scanner available (this is after fresh run of the simple-scan and clicking Document->Email).
Could you provide a backtrace (with debuginfo package for at least evolution) of the crash, please? I guess you face , but I cannot tell for sure without the backtrace. Thanks in advance.
Yeah, well, now I can't reproduce it. It was crashing reliably when I filed the bug, and I haven't even rebooted or anything. Will follow up when it's reproducible again.
Thanks for the update. Maybe it really is the upstream bug I mentioned in comment #1, it isn't reproducible reliably too - it depends on "proper" timing. I'm closing this for now, but feel free to reopen, when you have the backtrace. I can compare it with the upstream backtrace and see how much it is the same.
