Description Matthias Clasen 2005-10-14 19:30:10 UTC
Most of the tabs don't make much sense. We detect printers automatically,
scanners are not hal-supported atm anyway, nobody wants to run something when
a mouse is plugged in, etc. 

The tabs worth keeping are the one that actually talks about removable media and
drives, and maybe the one about palm syncing, but that may be conflicting with
gnome-pilot, which we also have in the preferences.

This also covers bug 169101

from the other bug:

Comment #2 From Ray Strode (rstrode@redhat.com)  	 on 2006-01-11 14:07 EST

The yast thing got fixed upstream and is already in rawhide.

We still need to get rid of gnome-printer-add and we also should used 
"f-spot --import gphoto2:" for the camera selection, i think.

I still think we should just get rid of the whole property dialog sans maybe one
page with one or two options in it.

Anyway, caillon wants to handles this stuff and I'm too lazy to file new bugs.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-14 19:30:48 UTC
Obviously, getting rid of most tabs did not happen.
Instead of f-spot, which we don't install by default,
we use gthumb for photo import.

Moving to FC6Target

Add to FC6Destop tracker

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-07-24 18:08:49 UTC
We really need to work on this upstream.  This isn't something we want a giant
distro patch for.

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 16:32:38 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 00:15:21 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
