Description of problem:
I have this friend. Yeah, that's it. I have a friend who logged in as a user,
let's call it jpin, and then executed gnome-cd-properties as user root and
disabled the autoplaying of audio CDs. He then wondered why his audio CDs were
still autoplaying. After some investigation, my friend figured out that he is
an idiot and ran gnome-cd-properties as the same user as his current gnome
session and things magicdevally started working properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.See it play
3.Wish it didn't.
4.Run gnome-cd-properties as root and change the behavior
5.repeat steps 1, 2, and 3.
6.Wait for light to dawn
7.Run gnome-cd-properties as the user who is logged into session
8.Repeat Step 1.
9.Be amazed that this really works the way it's supposed to.
10.Sheepishly enter a bug pretending it was really a friend doing this
Actual Results: CD plays.
Expected Results: CD does not play.
jrb says that it's possible to prevent "my friend" from doing this stupid thing
by not allowing this to be run from different machines and/or different users
than currently logged in.
gnome-cd-properties would have to be modified separately from the
rest of the control center, but I really don't really see this
as a problem ... the number of people running config tools from
the command line when su'd is going to be tiny.
