Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 972614
emblem doesn't work properly with gvfs 1.14.2-4.fc18
Last modified: 2014-02-05 18:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
After update to the mate-file-manager-1.6.1-4.fc18, emblem doesn't work properly.
When I drag and drop a emblem from sidebar to a file, the emblem is show up properly. Then, I drag and drop same emblem to a same file, the emblem is disappear as I want. But I drag and drop same emblem again, no emblem are shown up. And any operations about emblems are not work after this.
Emblems tab in the properties-dialogue shows same problem.
Any operation about emblems work only two times until restarting mate-file-manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open file-manager
2. Select emblems sidebar
3. Drag drop a emblem to a file to set emblem
4. Drag drop a emblem to a file to clear emblem
5. Drag drop a emblem to a file again
another steps to reproduce:
1. Open file-manager
2. Right click a file and open properties-dialogue
3. Select emblems tab
4. Click a emblem icon to set emblem
5. Click a emblem icon to clear emblem
6. Click a emblem icon again
Nothing happen. No emblem was shown.
The emblem will be shown again.
Before update to 1.6.1-4.fc18, emblems worked perfectly.
I don't know whether this is related problem, sometimes mate-file-manager suddenly terminated when closing properties-dialogue after emblems-operation.
I can confirm this with 1.6.1-4.fc18.
Can post which version was working for you?
Also a complete yum log would be fine.
Do 'yum history', than 'yum history info <id>' from the update, and load up a attachment.
Created attachment 759230 [details]
This is my recent yum history output
With my memory, mate-file-manager-1.5.5-1.fc18.x86_64 worked for me.
Created attachment 759231 [details]
And this is /var/log/yum.log
Sorry, but I confirmed that downgrade to the 1.5.1-1.fc18 don't fix this problem. And I found downgrade gvfs to the 1.14.2-3.fc18 fix this problem. I think this is a gvfs issue, not a mate-file-manager issue.
This is tested matrix.
gvfs version | mate-file-manager | result
1.14.2-4.fc18 | 1.6.1-4.fc18 | NG
1.14.2-4.fc18 | 1.5.1-1.fc18 | NG
1.14.2-3.fc18 | 1.6.1-4.fc18 | OK
1.14.2-3.fc18 | 1.5.1-1.fc18 | OK
i get same good results with 1.14.2-4.fc18.
Fedora 19 has similar problem. Emblems can't be set nor clear. Should I file a separate bug report?

Yes this might be helpful.
It seems that Fedora 19 has already fixed problem about emblems. Last night I tested Fedora 19 with latest gvfs and mate-file-manager and emblems are worked smoothly.
Yes there were some dbus issues as well. I'll leave this open for a bit.
the issue is cause by adding patches from gvfs-1.17 to f18 version.
All is writen in changelogs.
I believe https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=975521 may or may not be related as well.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is 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 change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
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.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
