Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125418
closing gtk apps causes gimlet to become invisible
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
Pete Zaitcev noticed that often when gtk app windows are closed
it causes gimlet to change to zero width, making it invisible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a single gtk app.
2. Close it.
2. gimlet vanishes.
2. gimlet to remain visible.
This is a feature of gimlet, Sun intentionaly did this way. because
gimlet will be undergoing a lot of changes, I suggest set this as low
I think this should be higher priority. The operability is confusing,
and this should not be considered a feature, Sun's intentions
As I commented in another bug, if this is really how you want to do
it, then it should be a system tray icon, you shouldn't have to
manually add it (it should just appear whenever a gtk app using iiimf
is up) or remove it. But I don't think that's good, I think it's
better to just be persistent in the panel as an applet. If people
don't want to see it, they don't have to add it.
I am duplicating this to 125417. They are the same problem. gimlet
does not have a placeholder when there are no status text.
