Description of problem:
When I try to launch an application which has been installed to my home folder using the command window (ALT+F2) the command window appears to lock. I have to restart X using CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I just installed Fedora 15 64-bit and Firefox 7.0 Beta 3 to ~/Applications/Firefox-Beta/
This happens every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download an application tar and extract it to ~/Applications/<app_name>/
3. Type ~/Applications/<app_name>/<app_binary> and press ENTER
Nothing happens -- the command dialog stays up. ENTER does nothing, ESC does nothing, clicking away does nothing, and I can no longer type. I'm forced to kill X to get back to a working desktop.
Launch the application.
I am able to launch default applications using this window (ie. the included installation of Firefox).
I am able to launch applications installed to ~/Applications/ from terminal.
I am using the NVIDIA driver version 280.13. I'm not sure if this is GL related.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
