Description Need Real Name 2010-06-13 17:05:33 EDT
Description of problem:clicking on a date in the calendar applet, or typing the command "evolution calendar" (the latter with or without a specific date) fails to launch evolution.  Using the command "evolution" alone usually results in a usable calendar window.

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

How reproducible:see above.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above
Actual results:(from command-line: "evolution calendar":)  No window appears, but the following output on the terminal:

(evolution:29492): e-data-server-DEBUG: Loading categories from "/home/.../.evolution/categories.xml"
(evolution:29492): e-data-server-DEBUG: Loaded 30 categories
Tracker-Message: Registering D-Bus service...
Tracker-Message: Registering D-Bus object...
Tracker-Message:   Path:'/org/freedesktop/Tracker1/Miner/Emails'
Tracker-Message:   Object Type:'TrackerEvolutionPlugin'

(evolution:29492): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(evolution:29492): evolution-shell-WARNING **: e_shell_utils_import_uris: Cannot preview any of the given URIs

Expected results:  a usable calendar window

Additional info:none
Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2010-06-13 18:59:59 EDT
You want "evolution --component calendar", otherwise "calendar" is interpreted as an invalid URI.

Confirming that launching from the clock applet isn't working.  An example invocation is:

    evolution calendar:///?startdate=20100630T040000Z
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2010-06-13 19:50:22 EDT
Right.  Using the correct command in fact works!  And when I doubleclick on a date in the clock applet, a process listed as in your example appears when I invoke 'ps', but no calendar window appears anywhere.

Moving this upstream so I can reference a GNOME bug # when I commit a fix.
