Description Erich Hoover 2004-02-21 14:43:53 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8

Description of problem:
After updating GNOME from rawhide the panel can no-longer find the
date configuration tool.  The panel reports the error:
Failed to locate a program for configuring the date and time. Perhaps
none is installed?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click on the date/time applet
2. Select "Adjust Date & Time..."

Actual Results:  An error dialog appears stating "Failed to locate a
program for configuring the date and time. Perhaps none is installed?"

Expected Results:  The system-config-date applet should appear and
allow configuration.

Additional info:

Running system-config-date from the terminal produces the expected
result, but the GNOME panel does not.

Patch for gnome-panel to look for system-config-date

This looks like the obvious solution.
[I can't easily test the patch right now though.]

Please reversion correctly (FC 2 test 1, not test 3).
Comment 3 Erich Hoover 2004-02-29 16:02:07 EST
The latest rawhide updates for gnome-panel doesn't even show an option
for configuring the date and time, is this feature being removed?

Fixed in CVS HEAD - will be fixed for FC test2

2004-03-01  Mark McLoughlin  <mark@skynet.ie>
        Based on a patch from Miloslav Trmac <mitr@volny.cz>
        * clock.c: Check for system-config-date which is the new
        name for Fedora's date and time tool. RH bug #116495.

Hmm, I prefer to only close out the bug when the fix is actually available
Comment 7 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-03-01 11:10:09 EST
I firmly agree with that ;-) .
