Last modified: 2008-01-27 07:46:15 EST
Description of problem:
If a the open-on-start file (set in Revelation prefs) has a path containing a
space character, after asking for the password(!) Revelation fails with:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 264, in <lambda>
self.datafile.connect("changed", lambda w,f: self.__state_file(f))
File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 481, in __state_file
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/user/spaced%20path'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The problem is dealed with upstream already:
There is even a workaround mentioned: "To avoid this problem I run gconf-editor,
and I change "%20" with " " in the path of the file, and I don't access anymore
the Preferences dialog otherwise the problem appears again."
Once it will be fixed the fix will be incorporated in Fedora as well.
