Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 407411
Last modified: 2007-12-02 07:45:17 EST
Description of problem:
I click on icon/name of an iso file in the gnome panel, and nothing happens.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always (for me)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Applications -> Accessories -> ISO Master
2. Navigate to a directory containing iso files
3. Click on icon/name of iso file
4. Nothing happens.
As above - nada, zit
As documentation states, the lower part of the panel should fill with the
icon/names of directories/files within the iso file.
Currently using Fedora 7. Would like to use Fedora 8, but am facing the
f8upgdephang bug. Was hoping that ISO Master would help create a new F8.iso
I can't reproduce that.
1. Could you start isomaster from a console to see for displayed errors?
2. Is it some specified ISO image? I yes, please check with some other images
too. And if it is possible please provide a path to that calamitous iso.
[root@hoho2 sql]# isomaster

I tried several, thinking it might be size related, I tried smaller isos.
When I do:
[user1@hoho2 FC6]$ xdg-open FC-6-i386-disc1.iso
I get a dialog panel that is titled "Write to Disk"
My DVD/CD burner is the choice on one of the popups.
At least xdg-open exists on my system..
I think I know what the problem is.
To open ISO file you should use Image->Open (from a menu), not double click on
Could you try it?
I select an iso file in the top pane.
I go to Image->Open
It opens up a directory viewer in a separate window with the title 'Open File'
and the left pane shows 'user1' highlighted (my username) and the directories
(no files) listed in the right pane are from my own disk directory.
No iso files in the lower pane of ISO Master...
OK, figured it out.
In comment #5 above (the new window), when I navigate to my iso file in that
window, and then double-click on an iso file, then the lower panel of the
original dialog fills in with the files/directories in the iso file.
Weird. Why have the 2nd window popping up? What good is the top pane in the
original user interface?
Certainly not an 'intuitive' GUI.
But, it does seem to work. Thanks much.
I already reported your suggestion to the author about automatically opening ISO
when double clicked on them (in the upper pane). The list above is used for
adding files when some iso is already opened. In fact it could be a little bit
confusing after fresh start.
