Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-08-15 17:32:22 EDT
Right now, all users are getting an icon for ESC.  Most users don't use esc, so
it shouldn't show itself.
Comment 1 Jack Magne 2006-08-23 16:18:37 EDT
Currently have working development code that effectively hides the icon at
startup, and can show the icon when a user inserts a supported key. The ultimate
solution to this will involve a daemon that checks for key insertions. When the
daemon detects a key insertion, it should then launch ESC if it is not yet running.
Comment 2 Jack Magne 2006-08-29 17:13:05 EDT
Currently testing this fix. Soon to attempt Rawhide build.
Comment 3 Jack Magne 2006-08-30 00:30:09 EDT
Performed Rawhide build, esc-1.0.0-8 and tested on local machine. Test worked fine.
Comment 4 Jack Magne 2006-08-31 00:59:48 EDT
Performed Rawhide build esc-1.0.0-9. Icon is hidden on startup. If all is
working correctly with the panel icon, the icon should show up, along with a
notification bubble, when the key is inserted. Works on local test machine.

Closing out as resolved with the 20061111.0 trees.
