Description Ervin 2016-01-10 11:40:13 EST
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

How reproducible:

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. 

Additional info:
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?
Comment 3 Ervin 2016-01-11 10:08:02 EST
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.
