Description gene smith 2009-05-19 23:42:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When gvim is run from konsole cmd line, it does not produce a visible gui window. The gvim process runs (10618 below) but does nothing. All you can do is hit crtl-c and you see this:
$ gvim t.gds
^CICE default IO error handler doing an exit(), pid = 10618, errno = 4

When gvim is run from a right click in a context menu in konqueror, an empty VIM gui appear with just a frame and not menu and the file does not appear in the gui frame. To kill it you can click the close "x" several times and goes away.

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

How reproducible:
Always does this

Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to open a file with gvim on konsole cmd line
2. Nothing happens but gvim process seems to run
3. Ctrl-c kills it.
Actual results:
No gvim gui comes up. If run from konqueror context menu, VIM gui frame comes up but with no menu and opened file does not appear in the frame.

Expected results:
gvim gui should come up with a menu and the opened file visible.

Additional info:
gvim -u NONE -U NONE filename
makes no difference.

When run from kde alt-F2 nothing happens except gvim process runs (no gui). Don't know if it works in gnome (don't run it).

vim works as expected. vim -g says gui support not enabled when compiled.

FWIW, for my install, gvim works find in gnome. It only has the problem in kde.

Found a workaround for the problem. See bug 501427 which is essentially a duplicate of this.
