Description Jamie Zawinski 2005-04-14 18:54:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
If ggv is already running, and I click on a link to a second pdf document, I get nothing.  If I do it from the command line, I get an error message.  

I guess ggv is trying to connect to the same process and open a second window, instead of just launching a second instance.  It's being too smart for its own good, because that doesn't work.

This has been true for more than a year, I think.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ggv file1.pdf &
2. ggv file2.pdf
3. profit

Actual Results:  (ggv:22250): GGV-WARNING **: Could not get GGV control: 'Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0''

(ggv:22250): GGV-WARNING **: Failed to create a new window.

(ggv:22250): GGV-WARNING **: No windows could be opened. Exiting...

Expected Results:  Just fork a second copy of ggv and show me the document.

Additional info:

Fedora Core 3 with the latest yum updates.

Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 20:30:06 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
