Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 233261
eggcups moving from redhat-default-session to autostart
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:59 EST
Description of problem:
For Fedora 7 there is a new, vastly simpler, greatly improved implementation of
eggcups, the print job icon/queue manager program. It no longer registers with
the GNOME session and instead should be run using the /etc/xdg/autostart mechanism.
Please take eggcups out from the redhat-default-session. Once that is done I
can put an eggcups.desktop file in the desktop-printing package to get the
autostart mechanism working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.grep eggcups /usr/share/gnome/default.session

I will commit your patch right now.
Oh, one complication we'll hit is upgrades. eggcups will still be in the session
for users. Does the new eggcups handle being started twice okay?
Hm, it'll show up twice in the systray. :-(
I could make it quit if start with a --sm-client-id option -- would that be okay?
That would probably be good enough.
If it has a dbus service, you could use that make sure there is only one running.
okay, should be gone from the default session in gnome-session-2.18.0-2.fc7
Unfortunately although eggcups does provide a service on the system bus, it
needs to be able to run concurrently for different users on the same machine
(with or without that service). It doesn't provide any session bus service. So
I'll go with the --sm-client-id==quit approach.
