Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 176433
Yes, I know when I unlplug the AC adapter, you don't need to tell me

Can we get some sort of pref (hidden in gconf-editor is fine) to make this
dialog go away forever? Please? I'll buy a beer.... :)
Or make the dialog go away automatically when you plug back in?
For comment #1, it already does this in g-p-m CVS:
* for where we add back the ac_adapter before
* the "AC Power unplugged" message times out.
i.e. clears the message when you re-insert the ac_adapter. I'll write a quick
patch for a gconf key to disable the message, although I think this should still
stay default to on.
I'll post back when the required changes are in CVS.
I work quick. If you use g-p-m CVS (as of five minutes ago) you can toggle the
gconf key "/apps/gnome-power-manager/notify/ac_adapter" to disable the
notification. And Bill, I like "Guinness Extra Cold", which you can fly over to
me, or if it's easier for you, book me on a flight and you can buy me one in
p.s. New version of g-p-m depends on hal 0.5.6 (CVS) so we can't push out a new
g-p-m into rawhide without updating HAL first. David, do you want to push HAL
CVS in for a stint in rawhide to knock out a few bugs or wait for the release?
Hmm, plugging a power cord in and out should just be indicated by the icon. The
fact that the screen dims or lightens combined with the icon change should be
enough. Perhaps we should differentiate the icons a bit more.
J5, The icon does change a bit, look at
http://www.gnome.org/projects/gnome-power-manager/gpm.html if you've not got
g-p-m installed. The warning is designed to say in a nice way "i'm now running
on battery" -- so if you accidentally janked the power cord (like me,
accidentally with your foot), you get a bit more feedback that just the icon
changing. It's configurable now, and I don't even mind if you turn the
notification off for fedora. :-)
On a related note, you can build g-p-m CVS with the 0.3.0 libnotify in rawhide,
but the posisioning of the widget doesn't work like 0.2.0 used to. I think it's
a bug in notify-daemon somewhere. I'll have a poke around this weekend at some
point. Until then, HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
There are lots more configuration options for the notifications in gconf, in the
recently released 0.3.4. Can you try that please.
Current SVN head also includes a link in the libnotify window "Don't show me
this again" so people can easily ignore the notification without digging into gconf.
