RFE: treat all sessions in the gdm sessions menu the same with regard to "default/one-time" session dialog
Last modified: 2008-03-18 14:34:07 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome session and failsafe terminal session are treated differently in terms of
whether or not you can choose to make that session default or just a one-time
I would like the "failsafe terminal" to be given the same dialog choice to make
the selection a one-time session instead of the default session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.select failsafe terminal in the session menu
3.get dialog warning you about the session change... but not choice to make it a
one time session change.
4. failsafe session is now the default session
1a. select gnome session in session menu
3a. get dialog that allows you to choose to make gnome default session or a
one-time session change.
5a. choice in the dialog from 3a is respected by the system and gnome is either
default or not depending on that dialog choice.
failsafe terminal sessions become the default session and I'm given no choice to
make it a one-time change.
I want all the session in the session menu to be treated consistently. Which
means either gnome loses the "one-time session/default session" dialog or
failsafe terminal gets that dialog. This really matters when you turn on timed
autologins, so that failsafe can be used as a one-time session without it
becoming the default.
We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state. I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
