Description Yil-Kyu Kang 1999-10-04 22:20:57 UTC
When selecting NCFTP from "gnome panel" -> internet -> nfctp
it does not work. Nothing happens.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-04 22:27:59 UTC
fixed in ncftp-3.0.beta21-1, in the next Raw Hide release.

Comment 2 Jan Carlson 2000-02-06 21:37:59 UTC
The fix did not appear in Rawhide ncftp-3.0beta21-1.i386.rpm or
ncftp-3.0beta21-2.i386.rpm.  Both still have Terminal=1 in
ncftp.desktop. Because Gnome interprets 1 as false, no window appears,
and ncftp complains into ~/.xsession-errors.

OFFENDING FILE: = /etc/X11/applnk/Internet/ncftp.desktop

POSSIBLE SOLUTION: replace Terminal=1 with Terminal=true

TO VERIFY THIS BUG, DO rpm -Uvh --allfiles ncftp*.rpm.
Then try to run ncftp from the Gnome|Internet menu.
Otherwise rpm will not replace your current ncftp.desktop.
It's a config file.

This is the only remaining .desktop file that contains Terminal=1,
after applying all RH6.1 updates and Gotchas fixes.  Lots of them
contain Terminal=0.  Gnome might need to understand 1 as an alternate
for true, but it doesn't in RH6.1 with all updates and gotchas fixes.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-07 15:42:59 UTC
I believe the current fixes are in the GNOME and KDE
libraries, in that they now both understand the
same syntax.

Comment 4 Jan Carlson 2000-02-08 01:10:59 UTC
All my rpms here are upgraded to the current Rawhide, but the "Terminal=1"
in ncftp is still interpreted as Terminal=false and ncftp won't come up.
Maybe in the next Rawhide?
