dragonplayer does not open video file with colon in file name
Last modified: 2009-01-31 22:04:46 EST
Description of problem: opening a file with a colon in file name - such as "filename: videofile" - fails with message "couldn't create slave: "Could not create a io-slave: klauncher said: Unkown «filename» protocol.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kdemultimedia-4.1.0-1.fc9
Thank you all for your attention.
How are you opening the file?
I renamed the test video file to "filename: videofile" and could open it both with dolphin and dragon directly without any problem.
I have removed ~/.kde/share/config/dragonplayerrc
I have a video file under "~/tmp/filename: videofile.mp4"
I start dragon by typing "dragon" in krunner and selecting the Dragon player icon with the mouse.
An open file dialog pops up on top of the Dragon window asking me which media would I like to play. I click on the "play file" button. The "open file" dialog windows pops up. I select the file called "filename: videofile.mp4" in ~/tmp. The dialog window closes and the focus goes back to the Dragon window.
The Dragon window is blank and the status bar says "no media loaded".
Contents of the dragonplayerrc file right after I close Dragon.
Recent Urls[$e]=filename: videofile.mp4
Recent Files[$e]=$HOME/tmp/filename: videofile.mp4,$HOME/tmp/filename: videofile.mp4
I open a konsole window, and then key "cd tmp/" and then "dragon filename:\ videofile.mp4", dragon plays the file without any problem.
Content of file right after I closed the dragon window.
Recent Urls[$e]=file://$HOME/tmp/filename: videofile.mp4
Thanks for the report. I checked upstream and could not find a matching bug.Please file a bug report in the the upstream bugzilla located at http://bugs.kde.org for the particular component involved.
Once you've filed your bug report to the upstream bugzilla, please add the upstream info to this report. We will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.
Thanks in advance.
I have filed this at bugs.kde.org. I believe this is not related to Dragon Player or kdemultimedia, but with kdelibs since the "open file" dialog of all applications I have tried does not open a file with a colon in its file name.
Please see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113595
Also, I am using F10 now. Don't know if this is resolved in F9.
The URL to bugs.kde.org in my comment #6 is wrong.
The correct link is https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=182648
Thanks, we'll continue to track this issue upstream.
