Description Kees de Jong 2017-08-10 06:36:13 UTC
Description of problem: When I type in a link and then select the next input field with either the tab key or with a mouse click, the server address field trims down to what's in front of the colon sign. For example '' would be trimmed down to 'https' only. This makes it impossible to configure the application with WebDAV.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): deja-dup-35.2-1.fc26.x86_64

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select the WebDAV storage location in the Storage Location tab
2. Type in a link in the server address text field
3. Select 'Use secure connection (HTTPS)'
4. Select another random text field
5. The server address should now be trimmed down to what was in front of the colon sign

Comment 1 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-08-16 18:20:44 UTC
Does 35.3 fix this?

Comment 2 Michael Terry 2017-08-16 19:27:56 UTC
Upstream here. I doubt 35.3 does, but upcoming 35.4 probably will.

Comment 3 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-08-18 14:02:04 UTC
I just upgraded to 35.4. Tried it on my local f26 system prior to pushing and building, because:

A. It changed my storage location to Nextcloud
B. It says I don't have duplicity installed.

Comment 4 Michael Terry 2017-08-19 18:14:24 UTC
Thanks for testing, Gwyn!

The new default storage location is Nextcloud (instead of Amazon S3).  Are you saying that your previous non-default location got changed to Nextcloud on you?

It says you don't have duplicity installed...  For context, 35.4 does expand our logic for installing dependencies on the fly.  By default, we only look at whether a package with the name "duplicity" is installed.  But you as a packager can set more.  For example, in ubuntu, I've done the following:

meson builddir -Dgvfs_pkgs=gvfs-backends,python-gi,gir1.2-glib-2.0 \
               -Dboto_pkgs=python-boto \
               -Dcloudfiles_pkgs=python-cloudfiles \

You can also pass -Dduplicity_pkgs=... to change which package(s) will install the duplicity program.  Is duplicity not called "duplicity" in Fedora?

Either that's the problem, or our detection (through libpackagekit) isn't working.

Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-08-19 19:36:27 UTC
Correct, I'm using ssh.

In Fedora, duplicity is "duplicity".

Comment 6 Michael Terry 2017-08-21 15:08:39 UTC
I haven't been able to reproduce the settings-resetting-to-Nextcloud issue you saw...

But after some testing on Fedora, the "duplicity isn't installed" issue is fixed by:

Which will be in 35.5 or you can distro patch for the moment.

Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-08-22 15:10:17 UTC
I'll wait, the patch doesn't seem to apply to 35.4.

Comment 8 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-08-23 13:57:13 UTC
35.5 looks good.  Thanks!
