Description Jack Deslippe 2007-06-05 01:52:03 EDT
Description of problem:
I don't know if this problem is fixible.  But, I thought I would report it
anyway.  Basically Beryl and deskbar-applet don't play nice together.

When I am using Beryl Window manager and I click on the deskbar-applet (it opens
behind any maximized window).  And when I change the preference setting to
'entry in panel' from button, I cannot type in the box - hence making it unusable.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
deskbar-applet-2.18.1-1.fc7
beryl-0.2.0-1.fc7

How reproducible:
Try to use deskbar-applet with beryl running ;)
Comment 1 Fedora Update System 2007-06-06 12:41:44 EDT
deskbar-applet-2.19.3-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

There is also a new version of beryl in updates-testing as well.

Not sure if this issue is fixable though.. as it seems pretty sporadic.  The
first click opens deskbar fine, then the next 4 open behind the window, then the
next above them.
Comment 3 Jack Deslippe 2007-06-06 23:35:36 EDT
Not fixed under the update to new deskbar-applet for me.  I didn't test under
new beryl as I am a bit scared to break my system.  I'll let you know when the
release hits the updates repo whether it fixed this issue or not.
Comment 4 Jack Deslippe 2007-07-14 03:30:04 EDT
This bug is fixed after installed Compiz-Fusion (which includes Compiz 0.5) from
Kagesenshi's repo see:  http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=159056

This has completely fixed the bug with deskbar-applet (as well as several other
bugs I had with beryl).  Perhaps some effort should be made to get the
Compiz-Fusion packages into the official fedora repos.  
Comment 5 Luke Macken 2007-07-14 15:29:25 EDT
The switch to compiz-fusion is inevitable, since compiz+beryl have now combined.
 I'm closing this bug now since there is not much we can do about this issue at
this point in time, except to wait for compiz-fusion.
