Bug Description

gnome do 0.8.0
ubuntu 8.10

gnome do correctly finds my stored sessions but none of them starts. All of them gives the error
"unable to open connection to [session name]:
Name or service not known"

launching it with "putty -load [session name]" works fine

Looks like old version of Putty - in my version (build Nov 18 2008) works without -load parameter.
Anyway - patch attached.

patch in trunk

This just reached me though my update manager and now it works perfect. I had to re-enable all plugins but thats nothing compared to having putty sessions work.

Great job!

This bug is included in the changelog for jaunty-updates, and I have that deb ( installed. This is still not functional for me. Putty works, but cannot launch by session name.

More info, troubleshooting.

1) Delete .local/gnome-do
2) reinstalled latest gnome-do-plugins deb
3) all of my docky settings reset (expected since I cleared .local/gnome-do)
4) deleted icons in docky and my Putty session entry came up as an icon. (named Prelude)
5) if I click on it it does not work.
6) If I look at the context menu, the only entry is "Connect with Putty", select it and it works.

I guess new version of Putty don't likes spaces in session names.
Are you using spaces in session names?
