Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125240
kdelibs (?) should require htmlview >= 3.0.0-4
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
Upgraded FC1 box to kde-3.2.2 (from FC2)
(I think) kdelibs replaced the 'Evolution' icon on the panel with one
that points to 'launchmail'. The version of htmlview in FC1 doesn't
include 'launchmail' so the icon doesn't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. build kde-3.2.2 and dependencies (from FC2) on FC1
2. install kde-3.2.2 on FC1
3. click on 'mail' icon on panel
4. error 'file not found: launchmail'
The first version of htmlview to include launchmail is 3.0.0-4 :
Ok now this is looking like a different problem, since the
'launchmail' script says all over it that it's for Gnome and now that
I've upgraded htmlview the script still doesn't work.
It says: 'The mail client does not exist: please reconfigure'
And now it looks like htmlview should depend on control-center, guess
I'll make another bug for that...
OK, that looks right, *some* kde package should depend on htmlview,
just still not sure it's kdelibs. I need to find out what package
creates or modifies the e-mail icon to point to 'launchmail'.
it's a bug in htmlview, which owns redhat-email.desktop and point to
It would upset KDE users too much to make KDE require GNOME packages. Meanwhile
KDE completely lacks any notion of "Preferred" application choosing leaving us
to rely on GNOME's chooser. These are conflicting requirements meaning this
problem cannot be fixed. Sorry.
