esc's autostart .desktop file fails to start under a KDE session
Last modified: 2008-06-16 21:49:06 EDT
Description of problem:
The esc systray applet fails to open when starting a KDE session. As far as I
know, this will be changed via a patch, allowing KDE to look in
$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/autostart (/etc/xdg/autostart). I've made some minor changes
to esc.desktop to allow it to start successfully under a KDE
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start a KDE session
Note that the foo.desktop files placed in /etc/xdg/autostart aren't seen when
KDE starts and the apps they reference are not started. Moving them to a
location where they are seen by a KDE session results in undesirable behavior.
The desktop files in the system-wide autostart directory should start without
The attached patch adds:
StartupNotify allows the applet to start under a KDE session without
displaying KDE's app start up notification icon.
X-KDE-autostart-after=panel allows the applet to start after KDE's panel
(kicker), preventing a race between the panel and the applet.
I've also run desktop-file-validate against esc.desktop and removed the
invalid 'Application;' and 'SystemSetup;' the tool complained about. It also
seemed appropriate to add 'Monitor;' as per the Desktop Menu Specification

Thanks very much for the report and patch.
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 It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
