Description Julien Enselme 2016-08-30 07:47:41 UTC
Description of problem:
If I start git-cola from the desktop file, I get the view to select the git repositories. If I select one, git-cola crashes. If I try to launch it in the command line, I get the stacktracke listed below.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.1-1


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In a terminal, launch git-cola


Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/git-cola", line 56, in <module>
    sys.exit(main())
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/cola/main.py", line 37, in main
    return args.func(args)
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/cola/main.py", line 282, in cmd_cola
    view = MainView(context.model, settings=args.settings)
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/cola/widgets/main.py", line 508, in __init__
    self.init_state(settings, self.set_initial_size)
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/cola/widgets/standard.py", line 102, in init_state
    if not self.restore_state(settings=settings):

    return bool(state) and self.apply_state(state)
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/cola/widgets/main.py", line 651, in apply_state
    result = standard.MainWindow.apply_state(self, state)
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/cola/widgets/standard.py", line 133, in apply_state
    from_base64(str(windowstate)),
TypeError: arguments did not match any overloaded call:
  fromBase64(Union[QByteArray, bytes, bytearray]): argument 1 has unexpected type 'str'
  fromBase64(Union[QByteArray, bytes, bytearray], Union[QByteArray.Base64Options, QByteArray.Base64Option]): argument 1 has unexpected type 'str'



Expected results:
git-cola restore the previous repository.
