I launch git-cola from the Ubuntu launch bar.

It would be nice if the initial open/clone/etc dialog had a short list of the most recently opened repos, so that I could just click again, and avoid having to go through the open-dialog.

Thanks.

Please ask for git-cola v1.8.0 in Ubuntu. We have this feature ;-) it was addressed in #135

Hi,

I think we're talking about different things.

I'm now running the latest stuff directly from GIT, and I see the following buttons:
Open
Clone
New
Close
on the very first dialog that launches when the app opens from the launchbar.

It's on this dialog that I would love a small list to appear with the most-recently-used repos listed.

We're talking about the same thing. What version does the "Help -> About" dialog say?

If you're running from cola's git repo you can make the prompt come up by running bin/git-cola --prompt

If there are no recently used repos then the list will not be displayed. This is a new feature, though. Can you let me know what version you're seeing in the about dialog?

Help->About says "v1.8.0"

If I launch git-cola from inside my repo's directory, I can see that it has a File Menu, which has a an "Open Recent" sub-menu, which lists the most recently accessed repos.

But if I launch git-cola --prompt then I don't see any menus or lists, just 4 buttons.

Interesting (I only say that because it works for me). I'll try to repro this tomorrow on different hardware, different OS and see if I get different results. Hmm.. what happens if you add a bookmark? Do you have any bookmarks? I wonder if the code bails out early if there are no bookmarks...

What's a bookmark?

If it's something native to git, then maybe, since I'm working with the LibreOffice repo, which is likely to have all kinds of weird stuff in it.
