Hiding panel makes it completely vanish
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
Description of problem:
Hiding the panel using the hide buttons makes it completely vanish, so that it
can no longer be unhidden.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable hide buttons.
2. Click one.
I don't actually get this. Can you describe in more detail how you make this happen?
I can't really; there's no more to it. I just did it again! :-((
This is 100% repeatable here.
(Is anyone getting email updates on this bug? Bugzilla says it sent email to
'no one', which doesn't seem terribly helpful..)
I assume this issue is resolved in gnome-panel-2.4.0-3? If so this bug
can be closed.
No, unfortunately not.
Any idea if this was fixed upstream? Do you have autohide enabled? I
am also unable to reproduce this, at least with a second panel I can
not make it vanish.
Since there are many open issues with gnome-panel it might be worth
releasing an update in testing. Either the current version with a
bunch of applied patches (I am working on gathering some), or by
moving to 2.4.2. I'll start a thread on the issue on fedora-devel the
beginning of next week.
Autohide is not enabled. I haven't tried a newer gnome-panel on this
Tim, I can't reproduce the problem on Fedora Core 1 with
gnome-panel-2.4.0-3. One of the hide buttons always remains visible,
and I can use that button to unhide the panel.
Can you give more details on how you reproduce the problem with this
version of gnome-panel?
I'm stumped, haven't heard any reports of this since 2.3.x. You aren't
using something wacky like multi-screen or Xinerama by any chance? :-)
I'll be putting out an FC1 update sometime this week with gnome-panel
2.4.2. I'd appreciate it if you could test it then.
Moving to Fedora Core 1, since this is the version of the panel we
No, nothing wacky. I'll let you know what change, if any, the testing
I've pushed gnome-panel-2.4.2-1. Let me know if it makes any difference.
Yes, that fixes it. Thanks!
Okay, a gnome-panel Fedora Core 1 Update (2.4.2-3) with a fix
for this bug is now available from:
