Gnomenu causes python crash in Fedora 12

Asked by Fred on 2010-03-02

Running in Fedora 12, I've attempted to translate the dependencies from their ubuntu form to Fedora form, and I'm fairly sure both the dependencies and the reccommends are installed. There aren't any errors prior to running 'make install' as root, at least.

But, after installing and attempting to add to a gnome panel instance, it crashes, and Fedora's automatic bug reporting tool catches it. It's been reported and can be found on the Red Hat bugzilla here:

I'm not certain if this is a python thing, or a Gnomenu using python thing, which is why I brought it here too - if it's Gnomenu, then that bug report might help fix it, I guess.

Would like to have this fixed so I can have Gnomenu back on Fedora.

im not familiar with this bug, however a quick google search found similar problems in other python programs like emesene

Its probably not a gnomenu bug since gnomenu runs on ubuntu, debian suse, gentoo, mandriva and some other distros

it seems to be related to threading, gnomenu only used threading in its own key binding module, you can turn it of by running " settings" and mark off the key binding

tell me if it works

Thanks whise, that solved my question.

That did the trick, thanks. Funny how one small setting can cause it.

ill set the option off by default since its causing this crash on fedora
