Description Rolf Linder 2008-05-19 12:55:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Until Fedora8 you were able to double-click a .tex file inside gnome-desktop
environment (or alternativley by right-click context-menu and then choose
texmaker as application) to open a latex file....

since Fedora9 this isn't working any more. It doesen't matter if the file is
local (on the local harddisk) or on a mounted nfs share...neither is working.
The only way to open a latex file with texmaker is to start textmaker from
system menu a go over the file open dialog...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
arch: x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a latex document with a latex editor of your choice...
2. try to open the document with a double click in nautilus or with the context menu
Actual results:
none (no application gets started...)

Expected results:
texmaker starts using the selected latex file

This look like a nautilus bug. When you double-click or right-click and select
'Open eith Texmaker', the message below is written to .xsession-error;
** (nautilus:2750): WARNING **: Can't open app: Failed to change to directory ''
(No such file or directory)
Comment 2 Rolf Linder 2008-05-21 13:02:31 EDT
Yes it seems so.

If you use a custom command to open a tex file and set it to path of texmaker
(/usr/bin/texmaker) then it works as before...

cheers, LiRo

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
