Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 434845
launching totem from the gnome mini commander applet does not work
Last modified: 2008-03-05 11:28:35 EST
Description of problem:
If I type totem <enter> in the gnome mini commander applet a totem-sized window
with a blank popup flashes open then dies
Starting totem from gnome-terminal or the main menu OTOH works
Please fix this regression - I had a nice totem /dev/video0 mini-commander
shortcut I used a lot before
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Probably a crash or an assertion. Check ~/.xsession-errors to see if there are
warnings caused by totem. Also make sure to use liboil-0.3.13-2.fc9, -1.fc9 had
a known crasher.

My rawhide is up-to-date :p
As I wrote totem only commits suicide when launched from mini-commander
Here is what totem reports before it commits suicide:
No value set for `/apps/totem/backend'
/usr/bin/totem: line 50: exec: totem-: not found
Actually, it reports the same when started from a terminal...

That'd be with 2.21.95. The package was completely broken. Nicolas, could you
test with 2.23.0. And try to get some debugging information, I really can't do
much without anything to work from.
I can't get debugging information when no error or warning ends up in the logs.
The test case is really simple (launch totem from the mini-commander applet), so
unless it works on a rawhide box located near you, why don't you look at it
Works fine here with 2.23.0. So I assume it is fixed.
Please reopen if you still see the issue with that version.
