Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-07-04 19:02:53 UTC
Description of problem:

This is not really a released package problem because it happens with
perl-Tk source rpm recompiled on an FC3 installation.  From time to time
I see after hitting a "wrong" button:

 Tk::Error: not a Tk object

 (command bound to event)

Any ideas what that may be?  I am afraid that this is at least non-obvious
in my searches.  /usr/bin/texdoctk is actually copied from tetex-3.0-4
as the "native" one has a raft of problems.  I do not have at this moment
a setup where I could try to reproduce that on an FC4  installation so I do
not know if this will happen there.

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

How reproducible:
The easiest way to cause that seems to be to hit, really spurious,
"OK" button in "Settings" dialog of texdoctk.

Comment 1 Andreas Bierfert 2005-07-04 19:29:53 UTC
I can confirm this on fc4 as well. I wonder how texdoctk works with perl-Tk
because tk was just added recently ... I will look into it... maybe this is a
texdoctk error?

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2005-07-04 19:56:07 UTC
Yes, this could be texdoctk error.  I looked at the code and perl-Tk docs and
this was not clear to me.  With a hope that you are more familar with that ...

As for working texdoctk - it does not work if you will not add perk-Tk. :-)
I just filed bug 162441 and bug 162442.

Comment 3 Andreas Bierfert 2006-02-08 06:44:27 UTC
Seems this went away for some reasin (I guess it was a texdoctk error). Will
close the bug. Feel free to reopen if this issue comes up again.
