Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 843533
evince: send to by email doesn't 'do' anything with no client installed
Last modified: 2014-06-18 04:10:43 EDT
Description of problem:
If you open some document in Evince, there is a File->Send To option. You can select 'email' as a method of deliver. If you have no client installed and selected in control-center:Details->Default Applications, you are still allowed to use this method, type a destination email address and press send, keeping you under illusion that all went fine and file got delivered while in reality nothing happened.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have no email client installed, or selected in the control-center
2. In evince, go File->Send to...
3. Choose a Email method
4. Type in some email and press send
You are not allowed to use the Email method in the first place as there is no email client selected in system for this to use.
This seems to be fixed in nautilus-sendto-3.6.0-1.el7. Email method is not listed in the combo box if there is no email client.
I believe the new Send To button only does email sending in the first place.
I tested this in another (duplicate?) bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1037788
With no mail client set up: "Send To.." button is greyed out.
With client set up: "Send To..." opens evolution and sends successfully.
Switching to verified.
