Description Bart Martens 2003-12-20 09:47:59 UTC
Description of problem:
Bad default value of auto_hide_size. And, auto_hide_size is missing on
the "panel properties" dialog box.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
Use autohide.

Actual Results: Too much of the panel still visible. And, no way to
fix this on "panel properties".

Expected Results: Default value of auto_hide_size should be 1 (or 0 if
possible). And, the "panel properties" should allow to modify

Workaround: use gconf-editor, select "/ apps panel profiles default
toplevels bottom_panel", and modify auto_hide_size to 1.

This patch sets the default auto_hide_size to 1.

Comment 3 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-12 18:10:40 UTC
Not sure if this is something to be "fixed". 6 pixels is allright for
me, so this is probably a matter of opinion. Are you sure the panel
will even reappear if you set the auto_hide_size to 0?

Would be nice if this would be configurable, but just setting
auto_hide_size to 1 doesn't seem to be the way to go.

Comment 4 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-18 20:36:56 UTC
What is this patch supposed to do? I applied it but don't see any
change. Should there be a visible change or only a functional one?

Comment 5 Bart Martens 2004-02-19 05:33:04 UTC
Thank you for testing. It doesn't change the current settings when
upgrading. It only sets the default initial value to 1 instead of 6.
There is more test feedback on the bug report at gnome.

Comment 6 Mark McLoughlin 2004-02-20 12:52:23 UTC
This being tracked upstream:


closing out as UPSTREAM

Comment 7 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-20 14:49:31 UTC
I'm not sure closing this bug as UPSTREAM at the current stage is a
good solution. We first have to establish if this needs to be fixed in
Fedora Core 1. - Personally I think not as this patch doesn't seem to
have any positive impact when doing an *update*, but this is just one
opinion. - If not it might just as well be closed WONTFIX.

Please reopen and have a discussion (on fedora-devel) first.

(If this were a single issue I wouldn't mind it being closed right
now, but since there are other issues that need to be addressed this
issue could be addressed at the same time just as well.)
