Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
No icons for GNOME Sensors Applet 1.7.8. I have use extra repository to install
this software (yum install gnome-applet-sensors).
cf. screenshot attachement for more details.
Created attachment 136308 [details]
This is also a problem in FC6. However I can only see the icons for battery and
harddisk, not the chip which can be seen in #1.
I'm running FC6 and GNOME Sensors Applet 1.7.8
It's working now after some update, but I don't know which.
Same here on up2date FC6 with Extras.
You simply have to log out and log back in to fix the problem. Could this be a
packaging/installation problem (must run a command to update icon database in
I'm having some icon problems on f7 with gnome-applet-sensors-1.7.8-3.fc6.
I see the chip, battery and harddisk icon, but I get an icon with a red cross
for the others.
logging out/in has not helped.
I had the same problem. So I compiled from sources (
sensors-applet-1.7.12.tar.gz) and now it works well, I can see the icons.
Can anybody update the rpms? If I'm able to make the new rpm, can anybody upload it?
I can confirm that the problem is "merely" the missing of proper %post scripts
to update the icon-cache.
I'm currently in the middle of an AWOL maintainer procedure for
gnome-applet-sensors, as the current maintainer seems to be AWOL. I will soon
conclude this and become the new maintainer. Is there any reason why this bug is
assigned to you?
As soon as I become the new maintainer I will do a new release adding proper
icon-cache update scripts amongst other things, thus fixing this. I assume it is
ok for me to close this? I'm asking because this bug is not assigned to the
current AWOL maintainer.
Short intro: Since Aaron Kurtz unfortunately know longer is a Fedora
Contributer, I've taken over this package from him.
As I already explained I can confirm that this is because of not updating the
icon cache as suggested in comment #5
I've build a new Fedora package which includes proper update icon cahce post
This package should become available in the updates-testing repository soon,
when its gets pushed there the update system will add a comment to this bug that
it has become available.
To use / test it once available there do:
yum update gnome-applet-sensors --enablerepo=updates-testing
