Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 995442
Caja does not launch from panel shortcut.
Last modified: 2013-10-19 15:53:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Caja does not launch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
MATE caja 1.6.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start caja from shortcut (caja -n)
Seems to be starting but then disappears.
Opened file manager
Problem was introduced from yum update. It did not exist in original fedora 19.
The USB issue 974869 reported seem to be affecting me too.
There is a process running caja. Killing it results in a million spawned caja windows.
caja from the command line seem to work (with no -n).
I quess you're speaking from the panel-laucher.
If yes delete them and create him new from the menu (add to panel)
Upstream has added the (-n) to /usr/share/applications/caja.desktop
Unfortunately i used this file for our first version of the default panel layout, and not the correct file /usr/share/applications/caja-browser.desktop which is used in the menu.
In latest mate-panel this is fixed but this doesn't override a existing user panel configuration, in result the pannel-launcher use the (-n) flag.
Sorry for this, i will leave this report open for other users who maybe run in the same issue, but there is nothing i can do.
The correct entry for a shortcut from caja-browser.desktop is
caja --no-desktop --browser %U
The x-caja-window issue is well known.
upstream is working on it, pls be patience.
I'm able to reproduce from the panel, we should change the shortcut.. I'll look and see if I can fix it myself.. if not catch up with you on IRC.
OK latest update:
This is fixed in the latest mate-panel update but it does not overwrite an existing user's configuration. Please manually update the shortcut by right clicking on the caja icon and updating the command to: "caja --no-desktop --browser %U"
The command update works for me. Thanks!
