Description of problem:
sugar-runner fails to start sugar-desktop in Workstation f21 Alpha TC5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install workstation in VirtualBox; in terminal yum install #sugar-desktop sugar-runner
Click on sugar icon in workstation; get black screen and cannot exit.
Reboot:Select sugar from gdm; sugar-desktop runs normally.
Steps to Reproduce:
get black screen and cannot exit.
With more testing it seems to run OK from the command line if you
specify a resolution eg "sugar-runner --resolution 1024x768" so I'm
not sure the issue with full screen
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 21-final by Fedora user satellit using the blocker tracking app because:
fix for running sugar-runner in f21 workstation
sugar freezes in workstation without this edit to the .desktop file
Change desktop file in /usr/share/applications/sugar-runner.desktop
add --resolution 1024x768
Discussed in 2014-11-19 blocker review meeting. As long this is just a simple desktop file change, it's not risky for Fedora products, and thus accepted.
21 is done, cleaning blocker/FE process metadata.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 21 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
