Phatch was working great with Mint-8 (Ubuntu 9.10) but in Mint-9 (Ubuntu 10.04) the functionality seems to have changed. I am using Phatch 0.2.7-1 Mint-9 (Ubuntu 10.04). I used to select several files in the Gnome GUI and then right click to open with Phatch. This would then open Phatch with those files pre-selected. I would then select an action list to use. This does not work with Phatch 0.2.7-1 in Mint-9 (Ubuntu 10.04). I also tried from the command line and phatch shows a tab indicating the number of files being opened but dies without ever presenting even the screen splash. If I start Phatch with no arguments and then select an action list followed by selecting the files via the execution gear icon, functionality is normal. It is not an OS issue as preselecting the files in Image Inspector via the GUI or in command line with the -n option works correctly and all passed filenames are processed. It appears to be the absence of a passed action list that is preventing launch.
Has Phatch changed to no longer permit file selection without a pre-specified action list, a deliberate design change or is there a bug?
