Gnome-commander 1.8.0 has been out for a while. I have not been following development as close I should and did not become aware of the new release until I was preparing to report a possible bug against 1.6.4 Embarrassed

I have built the package on CentOS 7.4 and it seems to run just fine. Some day I need to learn how to build an RPM package from a tarball. In the mean time if you would do your packaging magic, I would be honored to test your package prior to placing it in the production repository.

Thank you,

I'm sorry, totally forgot about your package request.
I'll try to build a package and give you something to test!

Please give it a try and let me know if it works as expected.

Thank you!!!

I have downloaded the package and I will do some testing today. I did manage to build an RPM package from the source tarball and I did get it to install. However, gnome-commander would not run. I have been working with Uwe to figure out what I did wrong. I will post the results of my testing of your package.

Thanks again,

Ken

Hello!

I have managed to do some installation testing of your new package. I will post my results below. I think there may be a couple of items which need to be cleaned up by the developer before moving forward. They are minor but I do not see the benefit in rolling out 1.8.0 only to follow in a few days with 1.8.1. Uwe Scholz is unavailable for a few days per his last email to me. I will document what I have seen and send it to him. I will let you know when he tells me that it is time to try again. Unless you can tell me what is wrong/how to fix it and I will pass that information to him as well.

The best news from a personal standpoint... I have finally managed to build my own RPM package from the source tarball Smile and I get the same issues when I install it as I get with your RPM Very Happy I guess I am doing something right!

Thank you again for your help.

First test - on a newly installed CentOS 7.4 Gnome Desktop virtual machine

yum localinstall gnome-commander-1.8.0-3.el7.nux.x86_64.rpm

Error: Package: 4:gnome-commander-1.8.0-3.el7.nux.x86_64 (/gnome-commander-1.8.0-3.el7.nux.x86_64)

These packages are available in epel. Add that repo and yum-plugin-priorities. Set Centos repos priority=1, epel repos priority=10. Try install of g-c again

Install 1 Package (+17 Dependent packages)

Installed OK.

Here is the first run of the program:

[ken@vmCentOS7-gc-target ~]$ gnome-commander
Creating directory /home/ken/.gnome-commander...
** (gnome-commander:2870): CRITICAL **: void load_devices(const gchar*): assertion 'keyfile != NULL' failed

** (gnome-commander:2870): WARNING **: Failed to open file '/home/ken/.gnome-commander/gnome-commander.xml': No such file or directory

** (gnome-commander:2870): CRITICAL **: void load_fav_apps(const gchar*): assertion 'keyfile != NULL' failed
Creating directory /home/ken/.gnome-commander/plugins...

and the second:

[ken@vmCentOS7-gc-target ~]$ gnome-commander
Creating directory /home/ken/.gnome-commander...
** (gnome-commander:2870): CRITICAL **: void load_devices(const gchar*): assertion 'keyfile != NULL' failed

** (gnome-commander:2888): CRITICAL **: void load_fav_apps(const gchar*): assertion 'keyfile != NULL' failed

and the third and all subsequent runs:

[ken@vmCentOS7-gc-target ~]$ gnome-commander

** (gnome-commander:2907): CRITICAL **: void load_devices(const gchar*): assertion 'keyfile != NULL' failed

** (gnome-commander:2907): CRITICAL **: void load_fav_apps(const gchar*): assertion 'keyfile != NULL' failed
[ken@vmCentOS7-gc-target ~]$

Even though the errors are "CRITICALL", the only thing which I see that appears to be "wrong" is the text in the column headings and the "device" labels on the devices bar. The text is very small and I cannot find any place in Settings to change it.

The program seems to be functioning correctly. I can navigate around my file system, move, copy, delete files etc.

-----------------

For my next test I installed your package over g-c 1.6.4 which I had installed from your repo on my CentOS 7.4 Mate Desktop physical workstation. The installation produced no errors. However, when I attempted to launch g-c I received this message (and the program did not run).

[ken@taylor20 Desktop]$ gnome-commander

(gnome-commander:12474): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.gnome-commander.preferences.general' does not contain a key named 'save-cmdline-history-on-exit'

I ran:

glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas

and that fixed the problem. The program runs correctly so far as I can tell. My settings, preferences, devices, connections to remote servers etc. all carried across from 1.6.4. The column heading fonts looked fine - same as they were in 1.6.4.

---------------------

Interestingly, if I manually build and install g-c on a CentOS 7.4 Gnome Desktop virtual machine I get the same two "CRITICAL" errors, the font for the column headers is very small and I get this error complaining about a missing icon:

** (gnome-commander:16939): WARNING **: Couldn't load icon: Icon 'gnome-fs-ftp' not present in theme
