Description of problem:
The Gnome panel no longer respects the apps/panel/global/panel_minimized_size
gconf setting. The default before was three and I have always changed it to 0. I
hide my panel and I maximize Evolution, Galeon, Konqueror, and Pan. I don't like
the panel hiding the status bar of such applications.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hide panel
2. Change apps/panel/global/panel_minimized_size to various values
Actual Results: No change in the panel size when hidden
Expected Results: Change in the panel size when hidden
This worked fine with previous versions in Shrike and Severn, aka Gnome 2.2.
This needs to be reported/addressed on the bugzilla.gnome.org level,
since we don't like to fork config option names/semantics or APIs.
(And the issue doesn't merit maintaining a long-term patch
distinct from upstream anyhow.)
I periodically file all bugs with MoveUpstream keyword on gnome.org,
if you do it yourself please add a link to the gnome bug here
and resolve as UPSTREAM.
Closely related to bug 112469. I'll see if I can find an upstream
Fixed with gnome-panel-2.4.2-1. Setting
/apps/panel/profiles/default/toplevels/bottom_panel now works as
expected (minimum size is 1 pixel).
Can be closed ERRATA as soon as the update makes it to the main tree.
Yeah, the key you want is
This should work with gnome-panel-2.4.0 too
