1. You might mean xdg-open, though I doubt PC checks freedesktop.org's mime database before deciding how to open the file. It's probably based on the extension. I have not used PC in years, but doesn't it generate and overwrite GNUmakefile? I'd expect if you manage to get PC to open it, it might not be as useful.

I'd rather recommend that, if a project doesn't come with a PC project file, don't try to use PC unless upstream wants to support this.

2. Did you uninstall all of GNUstep? Did you remove /etc/GNUstep.conf? Other than that, there isn't enough information to make a guess, I think. How about a nice backtrace, from which you or someone else can work out where GNUMail died.

This is rather generic and just says something didn't create the main thread. How did you build GNUMail? Unfortunately, you may want to provide full steps from a blank machine to the state in which you are.

I have cloned the GNUStep repos on GitHub and built them and installed them on a Debian 9. Then I downloaded GNUMail 1.2.3 and installed its dependencies (Pantomime and AddressBook)
I ran Address Book and i seems to be running fine. I then built GNUMail and when trying to run it form the command line I am getting the following error :

        GNUMail: NSThread.m:646: GSCurrentThread: Assertion `nil != thr && "No main thread"' failed.

,wich lead me to download and build project center to look at the sources and try to debug it. Project center installed fine (the release version on the main site) and I then created a project in the directory of the GNUMail sources.

When I open the GNUmakefile the file opens in a external editor and not in Project center. I investigated it and it seems to be related to xdc-open. I didn’t get a chance to look at the GNUMail code yet.

I have two questions :
1 - Is it possible to make project center ignore xdc-open and open all the text files it knows in its own editor ?
2 - Any clue to why the error in GNUMail is happenning ?
