Description Wolfgang Ulbrich 2015-01-26 13:14:04 UTC
Description of problem:
system-config-date use


exec /usr/bin/pkexec /usr/share/system-config-date/system-config-date.py

in executable script.
Unfortunately using 'exec' cause a double forking issue if starting from mate-control-center, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=972534 .
Using '/usr/bin/pkexec /usr/share/system-config-date/system-config-date.py' would fix the issue.
Is it possible to change that or is there a technical reason to use 'exec' in the script?

Thanks in advance

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. starting mate session
2. open mate-control-center from menu
3. try to start system-config-date
