Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201473
All programs/windows are placed in Current Workspace
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:08:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting a Gnome session from gdm, all terminal windows and other programs
are placed in the current workspace (you can flip workspaces while the session
is starting and leave programs in the then current workspace).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to Gnome from GDM.
All windows appear in the current workspace.
Windows open in their saved workspace.
Reverting back to gnome-session-2.15.4-2 resolves the problem.
I bet this was broken by Soerens change to run the wm outside the session.
yea probably. So I think gnome-session has some hacks in it now to launch
compiz or metacity before starting the session.
That should be taken out, and instead, Soeren's wm switcher capplet should blow
away ~/.gnome2/session (after warning the user!) when switching wm's.
can you report whether this is fixed in rawhide? I pushed some changes that
should resovle this i think.
It's fixed with gnome-session-2.15.90-3.fc6.
great. It looks like my changes caused other problems (see bug 202312), but
those should be resolved, too, by tomorrow.
