Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243246
desktop effects prevents screensaver from starting
Last modified: 2008-06-18 16:14:14 EDT
Description of problem:
If desktop effects enabled, screensaver stops immediately after start. Without
desctop effects sreensaver works properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
compiz - 0.3.6.8.fc7
gnome-screensaver - 18.104.22.168.fc7
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable desktop effects
2. enable screensaver in gnome
3. let screensaver start
screensaver tries to start and stop immediately
screensaver should start and work
the same thing happens with gnome-power-manager. Display is not putted to sleep
when desktop effects enabled.
Also seen here in FC8: compiz-0.6.2-3.fc8, gnome-screensaver-2.20.0-10.fc8. When
left, the screen fades out after the allotted time, but then immediately returns
to its unlocked state. When manually locked, the unlock dialog appears
immediately against the black background. It's as if something is generating
spurious mouse events.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
I still see this in FC8, can the original reporter amend the version field?
Alexey, could you try to reproduce this on newer distro, please?
Hello. I do not use fedora any more and have no possibility to reproduce the
bug. I can close this bug, if you wish ...
