Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192284
Missing per-screensaver settings
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
The screensaver selection panel (System -> Preferences -> Screensaver) seems to have lost the ability
to edit the unique preferences/settings of each screensaver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed the extras screensavers package
2. Open System -> Preferences -> Screensaver
3. Note that you can select individual screensavers but you cannot set preferences for them
3. In older FC versions, XScreenSaver supported "Settings..." button for each screensaver.
This is a a major annoyance that was introduced as a "feature" in GNOME 2.12.
It's an upstream bug which was filed nearly a year ago. The uppstream developer
has marked it "RESOLVED - WONTFIX". If anyone else can fix it many users would
greatly appreciate it.
we're going to go with upstream on this one.
