awn File Browser Launcher chokes on smb:// bookmarks and clarified names

Bug #297315 reported by HonoredMule on 2008-11-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Awn Extras

Bug Description

When .gtk-bookmarks contains links to samba shares "smb://server/sharename/folder[/] [MyFolder]", the File Browser Launcher instead displays a link to "Network" and launches "smb:///". The behaviour is the same whether the samba shares are present or not. These links also do not work in the awn applet Places, but they do appear correctly (albeit with a folder icon instead of samba icon).

Any bookmark that includes the "MyFolder" part (with or without spaces in the name) will show up correctly and launch in the Gnome Places menu, but the File Browser Launcher will popup the error "Could not find '/path/to/folder[/] MyFolder'."

Running Ibex with latest repository versions (as of Nov 11th, 2008, 0.2.6).

Well...if it doesn't work with a GNOME applet in addition to the Awn applets mentioned, I'm inclined to believe that it's a GNOME and/or Ubuntu problem. I would figure out how to get the samba protocol (smb://) registered. (Although I would imagine that Ubuntu would automatically register it if samba was installed.)

I've updated the description...the smb:// failure still occurs in the Places menu, but I don't see how it can be related since:

The error message is indicating that Gnome doesn't know what application (Nautilus) to use to display the link, but File Browser Launcher correctly launches Nautilus to the incorrect location.
The Places menu lists the items correctly (smb:// links and clarified names), but File Browser Launcher labels the former incorrectly and launches the latter incorrectly (which Places does not).

Also please note that I can open and browse samba shares without problem.

This was probably fixed in r961.1.346 by using GIO.
