Description Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2008-07-20 18:01:02 EDT
Description of problem:

The python nautilus extension isn't loaded in Fedora 9.  It seems that the
nautilus in Fedora 9 has a new directory for extensions:
%{_libdir}/nautilus/extensions-2.0 and a new API.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ps ax|grep nautilus => Find PID of running nautilus
2. /usr/sbin/lsof -p PID |grep python
Actual results:
The python nautilus extension is not present in the list.

Expected results:
python-nautilus is present.

Additional info:
I tried copying the python-nautilus extension over to the extensions-2.0
directory to see what would happen.  I got the following message in my

ImportError: /usr/lib/nautilus-python/nautilus.so: undefined symbol:

So there's some porting that needs to be done.
Comment 1 Toshio Kuratomi 2008-09-23 21:06:58 EDT
I took a look at whether upstream had a new release that fixes this and found this:

        - Add support for submenus (Lukáš Lalinský, Sylvain Baubeau, Erik Wien)
        - Make it work with nautilus 2.22 (Brian Pepple)
        - Initialize gnomevfs explicitly (Scott Tsai)
        - Compilable with Python 2.5 (Jonathan Rogers)
        - Shutdown Python (Gustavo Carneiro)
        - Initialize PyGObject/PyGTK/PyGNOMEVFS on demand (Gustavo Carneiro)

Trondd, are you still active?  If you open the acls for nautilus-python in the package database, other people can work on an update to fix this.

This also seems to make 'nautilus-bzr' and 'postr' useless, since they require 'nautilus-python'. Neither one works.
Comment 3 Trond Danielsen 2008-09-24 07:20:51 EDT
Hi everyone, and sorry for the slow reply.

I have just updated and rebuilt nautilus-python in rawhide, but I do not run rawhide myself atm so feedback from one of you would be nice.
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2008-09-24 10:03:06 EDT
nautilus-python-0.5.1-1.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
Comment 5 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2008-09-25 17:24:51 EDT
Thanks trond and bpepple!

I've tested the fc9 update and it works sufficiently that nautilus-bzr runs.  I'll get a new nautilus-bzr package that takes advantage of that built shortly.
Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2008-10-03 18:28:48 EDT
nautilus-python-0.5.1-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
