Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 204935
Update notification bubble doesn't go away by itself, multiple bubbles
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
The yum-updatesd puplet notification bubble comes up at regular intervals
but doesn't go away by itself if no one is there to see it. This leads to
multiple bubbles all in the same place, making the user think there is a
problem with the "x" operation. One has to click many times to get the bubble
to go away completely.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. let the system sit for a while with pending updates
The puplet bubble doesn't go away with one click of the "x"
The bubble shouldn't appear again if there is one already visible, or it should
time out and disappear if there is no response.
rawhide 2006-08-29 install plus updates. (equiv to 2006-08-30)
It took a pit of prying to see that there were multiple bubbles all in
exactly the same place. I've had as many as 8 bubbles sitting there at the
end of the day requiring 8 clicks to get them all gone.
I wrote two alternative patches to fix this problem.
The first one uses notification update functionality but it seems to have
revealed some drawing bugs in the notification applet so I don't recommend using
it before the applet is fixed.
In the meantime I recommend using the second patch for puplet.

First of the two alternative patch: uses notification update functionality

Second of two alternative patches: uses notification close and show functionality
I took a different approach which will be in pirut-1.1.10-1 in tomorrow's rawhide
"I took a different approach which will be in pirut-1.1.10-1 in tomorrow's rawhide"
But doesn't your approach still open multiple bubbles if the number of updates
changes in time? Or are you doing it on purpose?
