Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2970
WindowMaker crashes when using Gnome pager
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
WindowMaker version: WindowMaker-0.52.0
You can cause WindowMaker to crash by using the Gnome
pager. In particular, start out in a situation where there
is an iconified window in another Workspace. Then click on
the little up-arrow icon to get the list of Workspaces and
windows in those workspaces. If you click on the iconified
window, then WindowMaker crashes.
Note that the window switching works fine if you pick
Possibly important configuration details:
- WindowMaker is started from "exec gnome-session"
- I have WindowMaker icons disabled, since you get
the same functionality from the Gnome pager's
I was unable to cause WindowMaker crash as instructed using the
gnome-pager applet that ships with gnome-core-1.0.4-34 that ships with
the final release of Red Hat 6.0.
I'm pretty sure the bug is there, so let me provide some extra
information to help in reproducing:
- You need to have the "Disable miniwindows" option set. It's found
in the final panel of the WPrefs control panel
- Once you set that on, you should restart wmaker
If you don't do these steps, the bug WILL NOT show up.
Hope that helps in reproducing it. Note, I don't think this is a
gnome bug, I'm pretty sure it's a WindowMaker. WindowMaker crashes
under some other, harder to reproduce situations.
Final note: changelog for WindowMaker
(http://www.windowmaker.org/src/ChangeLog) claims that problem is
fixed in 0.53.0.
Resolving bug as fixed in version 0.53.0.
