Sessions - Ask on logout checkbox no longer working in FC5
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
Gnome-panel Preferences | more preferences | Sessions | Ask on Logout checkbox
no longer works, it just does nothing,
You still get prompted whether you like it or not
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Lateset gnome-panel gnome-panel-2.14.0-1
Every time, every user
Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto Sessions
2. uncheck box "Ask on logout"
You get prompted even though you turned it off.
You should be able to logout and bang you're logged out with no confirmation
dialogs or any other stuff to waste your time.
This worked in FC4
It is an ugly "end-usering" in the *indows style.
Although it seems to be an upstream issue, maybe fix it at FC locally (at least
for a while)?

An easy and ugly patch to fix this
It just set AUTOMATIC_ACTION_TIMEOUT (an internal one-place-used macro in
panel-logout.c file) to zero :)
I have noticed the same problem. Under FC4 I was able to tick a checkbox at log
out to save my current session. No matter what I have tried so far, I can not
get FC5 (running Gnome) to give me the option of saving my session on log out.
As a result, I have had to stick to using "save session always" which is not
what I really want. I want to be able to "snapshot" my current session set up
and have it reppear the next time I log in.
this is fixed now, I believe. I just set the logout_prompt key to false and i
didn't get a dialog.
