Liferea does not remember the configuration of the GUI
Last modified: 2007-12-04 10:54:02 EST
Description of problem:
Liferea used to remember the configuration of the GUI. By this, I mean it does
not remember any more how wide the side bar is, nor the preview area. But it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every since Fedora 7
Steps to Reproduce:
Enlarge the side bar
Close Liferea and re-open it again
The side bar is back to its previous position
I've tried this on several machines, and every time I start up liferea again the
sidebar is the correct size. also, checking the gconf value for last-vpane-pos
before closing & after opening verifies this.
please provide more information, since I'm unable to reproduce this error.
I've tried on 2 machines, a desktop and a laptop. On the desktop, it works fine
and the last-vpane-pos value has got a value. On the laptop, it doesn't work and
the last-vpane-pos is fixed on 0 whatever I do. I even deleted my .liferea_1.2
without success. The size of the side bar is not saved.
Let's have you try manually changing the gconf value and see if that works.
First off, let's close liferea. Then use the following command to set the
feedlist sidebar width:
gconftool-2 --type integer --set /apps/liferea/last-vpane-pos 150
Then re-open liferea,and see if it is using the correct width. If I remember
correctly, having your last-vpane-pos set to 0, uses the gtk+ hints to set the
width. When I have some free time, I'll dig through the code and see how
they're saving the gconf settings.
Changing the gconf value manually works. But the value remains the one I set
manually. If I change the width in liferea, it is not saved and I come back to
the value set manually.
That's really weird, I still have the problem on Fedora 8.
I wanted again to remove the .liferea_1.2 but Liferea doesn't mind about it and
reload my opml file even if its home folder is deleted. Are there other files
hidden somewhere ? I think I'm turning crazy...
Well of course it is not my opml file but the one which is by default as an
Thomas, are you still experiencing this bug in the 1.4.x branch?
Thanks for telling as I did not even noticed there was a 1.4.x branch. I
installed it, removed the stuff in gconf and removed my liferea home folder and
Thanks, you saved my life :)

Cool, I'll mark it as fixed in current then. Thanks.
