Typing Break - Never prompts for a break
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
When "Typing Break" is enabled, it never gets past counting 3 minutes before
resetting itself, so no break is ever taken nor prompted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System->Preferences->Keyboard->Typing Break->Enable (default times 60m,3m break)
2. Click Close
3. Applet appears in panel, however on mouse over it is never less than 57 minutes.
Never counts down more than 3 minutes
Count down to zero and prompt for break.
It used to work. I had an nvidia card using proprietary drives and dual screens,
switched to an ATI card using proprietary drives in dual screen mode as well, no

with nvidia one output was vga and the other dvi, the ati card is dual dvi...
I'm willing to try to debug this in whatever way to determine where the problem
That's bizarre. Could you try killing the typing break, and starting it on a
It should reappear in the notification area, and we'd see whether there are any
warnings or such on the command-line. I'm using it all the time on FC6, and I
don't seem to have had any problems.
I'm not really sure where the issue was. I had what seemed like an unstable
system, firefox, gaim and eclipse would also segfault fairly often. I
re-installed FC6 from a new download/burn of the DVD Iso, and it seems to be
working wonderfully now. You can probably close this bug, I'm not sure the
cause, but I would assume it was a corrupted install of some sort. Plus I can't
remember, I *may* have originally gone from FC6test3 to FC6 when it came out...
Cool. Closing then.
