Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459583
unable to process non-option command line file arguments
Last modified: 2008-12-02 18:22:07 EST
Description of problem:
The application is not able to process files passed on the command line. It is not possible to launch the application via the file context menu in Nautilus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.21.3 and higher
Open the supported file's context menu in Nautilus and select Open in Subtitle Editor.
Launch the application from the command line with file parameters:
subtitleeditor <supported subtitle file>
Application starts without opening the file passed on the command line.
Application opens the file passed on the command line.
The application uses the glibmm's OptionEntry class with the G_OPTION_REMAINING flag to collect all non-option arguments (including the proper l10n of paths).
Although it should be fixed in glibmm-2.16.2 (currently in updates for FC9), it does not work. The minimal glibmm's release supporting this feature is 2.16.3.
It would be wise to update glibmm to the latest patch release from the stable series, currently 2.16.4 for the benefit of all applications.
Thanks for the report and additional info. I can confirm the issue.
The problem was fixed by the solution to the dependent bug report https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=459792.
Close it please if my permissions are not enough.
