Xiphos does not launch in Fedora 23
Last modified: 2016-04-01 11:34:11 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed Xiphos through gnome-software. Xiphos installs or appears to install, not sure, but fails to launch afterwards. The xiphos icon is also not present in the app drawer after installation is finished.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.0.4-1.fc23 Version for Xiphos
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Xiphos from gnome-software
2.Click launch on gnome-software after the installation is complete
Actual results: Xiphos fails to launch and can't be find in the app drawer either.
Expected results:Xiphos should launch normally and should be found in the app drawer like every app that gets installed.
I installed Xiphos using Yumex and I chose the gtk3 package. Xiphos got installed and launchs normally.
However I also installed Bible-time another app similar to Xiphos at the same time. I have noticed that Xiphos and Bible-Time can sometimes use similar libraries, such as downloaded and installed bibles.
I did not try installing Xiphos without installing Bible-Time at the same time.
However I removed Bible-Time and Xiphos still works normally.
Not sure and can't know if there is any relation or if there is a missing package that Bible-Time provides that causes Xiphos to work.
I forgot to mention that there are two Xiphos packages, one gtk2 and one gtk3.
I have not tested the gtk2 package from Yumex.

Is it plausible the GTK3 one does not work?
Well the GTK3 version works, and worked when installed from Yumex.
I don't have the option to choose between Gtk2 and Gtk3 in gnome-software so I don't know which package gnome-software installed.
Let me know if you need me to do another test.
However I think it must be a missing dependency.
After upgrading with fedup to fedora 22 Xiphos would not launch.
Erased and reinstalled xiphos-gtk3. Still will not launch from menu.
Wait icon hangs for 20 seconds then disappears.
Does launch from terminal with this error:
GConf Error: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
I don't think this is a GNOME Software bug, sorry.
