Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170592
Trash can moved and refuses to return
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:27:59 EST
Description of problem:
After an update, the trash can moved off the screen and refused
to come back ever since.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, for here. But may be tough for anyone else.
Steps to Reproduce:
At login, the trash can is at the border of the screen.
Trash can completely visible.
I tried to log out with "Save Current Setup" checked, it does not help.
The damn can will return into the half-hidden location on next login.
This definitely happened after an update. I never touched the thing.
Then one day I ran "yum update", logged out, logged in, and voila.
I experiemnted a little with this, and it looks as if trash can snaps to grid
or something. No matter where I put it on the screen, it moves to the right
to a certain position. If I say "keep aligned" from right-click menu, all
objects align where trash can is.
Other icons stick where I put them.
So, we have two problems here. First, the can is different from all other
objects, and the second, it snaps to grid in such a way that it's partially
off-screen (at 1024x768).
Actually all other objects snap to grid now too.
Is this still a problem for you?
I don't care, I gave up on it.
BTW, the behaviour of sticking is very odd these days. Trash can stick
to a position, but only to an extent. Move more and it snaps to grid.
It's amusing but I stopped caring after a while.
Ok, closing this bug then.
