Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209990
Puplet notification icon ignores left clicks/double-clicks
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The system notification icon about new software updates is not clickable. It
doesn’t matter if you click or double-click it — nothing happens. When
right-clicking, however, a pop-up menu appears. This is counter-intuitive.
Granted, a big balloon with information is shown then first time the icon
appears, but clicking the icon should at least bring back the balloon. Not
simply ignore the user interaction.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6Pre.
2. Wait until the notification pops up about new updates.
3. Close the balloon that appears, leaving just the icon visible (see attachment).
4. Click or double-click on it.
Either the info balloon or the actual update program should appear.
This bug report was filed because Rahul Sundaram asked me to in a response to my
FC6 vs Ubuntu 6.10 review:

Committed something to CVS so that we can popup on left click also, but unless
there's a release blocker for the package, I'll have to just release it as a
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
