Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2017-11-30 00:08:17 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 28-beta by Fedora user satellit using the blocker tracking app because:

 wrong behavior on start of soas  
should open in f3 Desktop main menu
non-blocking desktop

Comment 3 Geoffrey Marr 2017-12-11 18:22:29 UTC
Discussed during the 2017-12-11 blocker review meeting: [1]

The decision to classify this bug as an AcceptedFreezeException was made as it is clearly wrong behaviour in a non-blocking live image that can't be fixed with an update, and the fix is highly likely to be localized to Sugar.

still present in Fedora-SoaS-Live-x86_64-Rawhide-20180107.n.0.iso

Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2018-02-20 15:29:25 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.

Comment 7 Peter Robinson 2018-03-21 03:20:54 UTC
This needs to be actually assigned to a component that's not actually dead, the Journal had for years been part of core sugar.

Comment 8 satellitgo 2018-04-03 16:22:14 UTC
note to get to main screen (f3) hit f1 key then f3 key

Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2018-08-29 00:10:45 UTC
Per satellit this is still happening in F29, so let's propose it as an FE for F29 Beta...

Removing, this needs to be fixed upstream and there's no movement in the upstream issue referenced in comment 4. Once we have a patch there it would be worth considering a FE but until that point it's a waste of time and process.

Comment 11 satellitgo 2018-08-29 16:14:38 UTC
it has nothing to do with fedora, it is a gtk+ vs sugar toolkit problem at heart, also seen in debian and ubuntu. (James Cameron)

So until it's fixed upstream in Sugar please stop proposing it as a blocker and wasting everyone's time in the process!

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1519042 still present
all work in Oracle VirtualBox f28

Comment 14 James Cameron 2018-11-24 07:43:14 UTC
The triggering cause wasn't Sugar, but Metacity.

It was the upgrade of Metacity from 3.24.0 to 3.25.2, and git bisect shows first bad commit is

"unminimize windows with initial IconicState if first known on MapRequest"

ported from mutter

It isn't clear to me that this represents a problem with Sugar.  I'd like to hear from any Metacity or X-Windows experts on the matter, thanks!

Comment 15 Peter Robinson 2018-11-24 12:42:03 UTC
Re-assigning so we can get that feedback from the metacity maintainers.

log shortly after first boot

The patch offered at http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/iaep/2018-November/020586.html was applied to F29-SOAS-x86_64-20181119-Live.iso, a fedora-respin, loaded onto a USB device before it was booted.

The Home View opened, showed the central icon with Journal icon below and no Activity icons at first.  Then all the Activity icons appeared in the circle.

The shell log shows some evidence of the metacity issue.

Comment 17 satellitgo 2018-11-28 20:23:38 UTC
I applied the patch to a F30 soas live install to a T400 Thinkpad with Mate as a 2nd DE, used sugar terminal and USB with fix on it. Starts fine in f3 Home screen of sugar desktop.
