Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 112759
Panel does not persist ordering of components on panel
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
In my setup the panel is not expanded and does not have the hide
buttons. On subsequent reboots when I login the components that I
previously ordered on the panel are now in a different order.
Commonly the left two components (window list and workspace list) are
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora
Core 1 (no erratas)
How reproducible: Follow steps
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a panel that is not expanded
2. Add components to the panel
3. Reboot several times and it should re-occur
Actual results: Order of components differ.
Expected results: Components order should be preserved
Does this issue still persist or was it fixed by doing upgrades?
Try right-click on the icon, and select lock. Does this help?
Peter: I can't reproduce this here with Fedora Core 1 and I was pretty
sure it had been fixed.
Could you detail the exact steps you are using to reproduce this e.g.:
1. Create a panel, make it not expand
2. Add a terminal launcher, then a battery applet ...
3. Swap the position of the launcher and batter applet
4. Re-start the panel
If you just do "killall gnome-panel" instead of rebooting, it should
have the same effect wrt reproducing the bug.
Also reported upstream by someone else:
Sorry we have been in release cycle for past couple months, I havent
had time to look at this at all. I will get to it as soon as we are
done with release.
Resolving UPSTREAM. Its fixed upstream now - we'll pull the fix in
with 2.6.1. Thanks :)
