Description of problem:
If artsd is launched from within GNOME (as opposed to when KDE is set
as the desktop) then it will continue to run after the user logs out.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into GNOME.
2. Start a terminal.
(this will actually fail since noatun doesn't work with wavs but
4. Quit noatun.
5. Log out of GNOME.
6. Log into a virtual terminal.
7. run ps auxw | grep artsd
An artsd process is found.
No artsd process to be running.
We are seeing this a lot in the small computer room we have because
users sign in and out all the time and use things like K3B from GNOME.
I'm not sure if this is leading to sound problems (i.e. the device
can't be obtained when they log into GNOME because the soundcard has
no hardware mixing and is kept open by artsd).
This does not happen if the Desktop Environment is set to be KDE.
This is still here in FC4's arts-1.4.2-0.fc4.1
This is still here in FC5's arts-1.5.2-0.1.fc5 . Perhaps this should be filed
against the devel version?
Still here on FC6 with arts-1.5.6-0.1.fc6
Thank you for the bug report. However, Fedora Project no longer maintains this
version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug
if the problem persists.
