Description Franck Waechter 2010-08-23 11:20:43 EDT
Description of problem:

When I launch rapid-photo-downloader, it crashes (silently)

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch rapid-photo-downloader in terminal
2. It crashes
3. See traces
Actual results:

it crashes with console message :
"Problem using pynotify"

Expected results:

Window must appear

Additional info:

I'm using last gnome-shell packages.
It works in F13/x86_64 with gnome-shell too.
Comment 1 Franck Waechter 2010-08-23 11:59:42 EDT
In source code, I can see :

import pynotify
def initPyNotify(self):
if not pynotify.init("TestCaps"):
sys.stderr.write(_("Problem using pynotify.") + "\n")
Comment 2 Fabian Affolter 2010-09-01 06:49:49 EDT
For me the package works fine on Fedora 13 too (without gnome-shell).  Perhaps there was a bigger change in pynotify that make rapid-photo-downloader no longer working in Rawhide.
Comment 4 Franck Waechter 2010-09-19 09:45:35 EDT
The bug was fixed with the last notify-python update :


Changelog :

* Thu Sep 09 2010 Tom "spot" Callaway <tcallawa@redhat.com> - 0.1.1-15 - fix init.py so that it is able to load the needed GTK2 symbols from pygtk (bz 626852)
