Nautilus crashes when opening terminal on an SSH view
Last modified: 2009-05-20 10:05:27 EDT
Description of problem:
Hitting Open in Terminal while nautilus is displaying a remote directory via ssh makes Nautilus crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 current Nautilus 2.26.2 package
Always, just click open in terminal while browsing a remote ssh directory.
I can't reproduce this in a fresh user account. I did this:
1. Hit Ctrl+L
2. Enter "ssh://username@remotehost/home/username"
3. Accept unknown fingerprint after verification
4. Provide passphrase, with "forget immediately" selected
4. In resulting Nautilus window, right-click and select "Open in Terminal"
5. GNOME Terminal appears asking for SSH passphrase as expected
Mine is an upgraded account (was using F9 till last week on this machine).
Not sure if that makes any difference ?
Btw, why should Gnome Terminal ask again for the passphrase?
All the contents are already available under ~/.gvfs anyway ...
Not sure either. This machine is a regular installation, and I used a fresh account. Apparently nautilus-open-terminal is respecting regular ~/.ssh/config stuff, because when I use ControlMaster I just get a straight-up prompt with no additional passphrase required. (I protect all my keys with passphrases.)
Does the problem occur in a fresh account on that same system?
Yes happens to me also with a brand new account
Let me get Rahul's bug report tied in here too -- I hadn't seen that until today.
