Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198149
changes to gnome-system-monitor through gconf-editor are not propagated properly
Last modified: 2008-03-18 14:42:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Changing the configuration options of gnome-system-monitor via gconf-editor has
no effect. When I change them via apps->panel->applets->applet_4->prefs (or
whatever applet number gnome-system-monitor has on the system), for example,
enabling disk activity, the disk activity field is not shown in the panel. When
I do it via preferences of gnome-system-monitor itself it is shown.
The weird thing is that the changed settings are shown in the preferences dialog
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install gconf-editor
2. add gnome-system-monitor to the panel
3. change configuration options for gnome-system-monitor through gconf-editor
gnome-system-monitor should have reacted to configuration changes.
I checked this with the latest packages from rawhide, it is present there as well.
Moving to gnome-applets, where the multiload applet lives.
fixed in 2.15.90-2.fc6
I tested with FC6t2 (fully updated) today and this contains
gnome-applets-2.15.3-1.fc6. There is no newer version available, it seems.
I tested today with FC6 (fully updated). It's still there. gnome-applets
gnome-applets-188.8.131.52-12.fc6 and it is still there.
We no longer support Fedora Core 6 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?
