Bug Description

Upon any type of web browser lanuch (EG: File a bug, more information button, etc), the main UI Window goes blank until the browser is closed.

--verbose output around the time of the bug (I was having the time sync bug also, trying a few things):

The issue goes away after the browser is closed, possiblly an issue with my GTK Installation?

Also, for some reason, pithos is opening firefox. Not sure if it's a hard coded call, but I have chromium-browser set to my default

Kevin Mehall (kevin-mehall) wrote :

What distribution and release are you using?

Pithos uses python's webbrowser module to open a browser, so this is probably a bug in Python if the browser is not being opened correctly, or if it is freezing the Pithos process.

Ubuntu 11.10. Default install. I did apply a patch to get rid of the time bug. I also noticed that the same message was spammed when I opened chromium from docky, so it's most likely an issue with the install. Still not sure why the UI window would blank out though...

I believe that the reason pithos was using firefox was because your $BROWSER environmental variable was set to firefox. You should unset it to fix that problem.

The hanging gui issue is fixed in my pull request: https://github.com/kevinmehall/pithos/pull/11
