Description Christoph Wickert 2011-10-23 12:20:54 UTC
Description of problem:
While I was running the desktop validation testing for Xfce (with F16 Final TC2) I noticed that the 'Open in Terminal' option of the directory menu does not work.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add directory menu plugin to panel if you haven't already
2. click it, select any folder
3. click 'Open in Terminal'

Actual results:
nothing happens

Expected results:
desired folder should opened in terminal

Additional info:
When starting xfce4-panel from a console you will see the output

  'Unknown option "home liveuser"'

It seems like the panel just calls the terminal emulator and the path, while for Xfce's Terminal it should be 'terminal --working-directory <path>'. So this might actually be a configuration problem in exo.

Comment 1 Christoph Wickert 2011-10-23 13:55:57 UTC
Proposing this bug to block F16-accepted because it violates the following Release critieria [1] "All applications listed under the Applications menu or category must withstand a basic functionality test and not crash after a few minutes of normal use."


Comment 2 Christoph Wickert 2011-10-23 14:06:31 UTC
Sorry, wrong release criteria. I meant: "All elements of the default panel (or equivalent) configuration in all release-blocking desktops must function correctly in common use"

Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2011-10-23 16:03:01 UTC
Guess there is not much we can do, it has been reported upstream without success: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8018

Ok, fix from upstream coming your way...
