Description Bernard Johnson 2006-03-06 16:45:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060223 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
When I start my gnome session, the low power notification pops up when I log in (this happens every time because of another bug I'm seeing - bug #183679).  The notification bubble is misplaced and cut off.  See attached screen capture.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login
2. Observer

Actual Results:  Notification bubble placed to the far top left of the non-panel area.  So far left, it is somewhat cut off at the edge of the screen.

Expected Results:  The notification should not be displayed until the panels items are complete and it can be associated with it's applet.

Can you attach a g-p-m verbose trace to this bug please, of when the icon is not
where it should be. Many thanks.

Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2006-03-08 06:06:26 EST
Thanks, that's exactly what I neede to see. It's really chicken and egg with
that bit of code, we can't display the tray icon until we know the device list,
and we can't display the notification until we have shown the tray. What about
if the notification was just in the bottom left (in this instance) as if the
notification wasn't told where to point (the system default). Is that any good?
Comment 5 Bernard Johnson 2006-03-08 06:13:44 EST
This is not necessarily a login issue - that's just where I normally see it.  To
get the g-p-m verbose output, I just pulled the plug on the mouse and plugged it
back in (after restarting g-p-m in verbose mode).  My gnome-session has been
going quite a while.

Are you saying there is a race condition between the notification and the tray
icon?  If so, why can't the notification be delayed until after the tray icon
has been displayed?
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 13:04:53 EDT
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against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained.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flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained.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 7 Bug Zapper 2008-05-06 20:25:12 EDT
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
