Description P Jones 2007-01-17 15:19:53 UTC
Description of problem: Selecting "Use system default" in Prefrences > Windows >
Toolbar Style does NOT cause gnucash to use system defaults.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnucash-2.0.4-1.fc6

How reproducible: Set GNOME toolbar preferences to show icons only, select "Use
system default" in gnucash Preferences > Windows > Toolbar Style, watch how
nothing happens and text stays under icons. Selecting "Icons only" in gnucash
preferences works as expected, as do the other choices.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2007-01-17 16:10:07 UTC
Most apps don't respect that pref; that pref only changes bonobo toolbars
(Evolution, etc), not the GTK+ toolbars as used by gnucash, gedit, sol, and so

There's nothing for gnucash to do here unless the capplet is updated - moving there.

Screenshot showing toolbar preferences, gnucash 2.0.2

The screenshot shows how gnucash 2.0.2 observed GNOME toolbar preferences.

The "detachable toolbars" setting should be removed upstream, pretty much
nothing uses it anymore, and moving toolbars is just a gimmick.

I've just filed:

Comment 6 P Jones 2007-02-16 13:37:20 UTC
My bug report was not about detachable toolbars, it was about text under toolbar
icons. Gnucash 2.0.4 does NOT observe GNOME Menus & Toolbar preferences. If I
set "Toolbar button labels" to "Icons only", Gnucash  2.0.4 will still show text
under the toolbar icons.

Comment 7 Bastien Nocera 2007-02-16 13:46:56 UTC
My mistake. The upstream bug still stands, and the problem lies with GNUCash to
fix that problem. Epiphany and Rhythmbox don't use Bonobo and are still able to
follow that setting, so GNUCash should be able to as well.
