Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 380071
KDE update creates three blank icons in systray
Last modified: 2008-06-16 22:51:35 EDT
Description of problem:
After updating to KDE 3.5.8 on Fedora 7, there were several empty spaces in my
system tray when I next logged in. I eventually determined that they were
related to bluetooth-applet, sealert, and system-config-printer-applet; when I
killed those three programs, the empty spaces disappeared and didn't reappear
on subsequent logins. What could have caused these to suddenly start?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happened on two different Fedora 7 computers
These are gtk-based applets? If so, it's a gtk issue, see bug #214222 (it was
fixed, but for f8+ only, I'm afraid).
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 214222 ***
From comment #2 of bug #214222
"Definitely fixed with gtk+ 2.11.6"
F7 only ships gtk2-2.10.14-3. So this seems not to be fixed there.
The workaround -- assuming you don't actually care about using the applets -- it
to move the corresponding .desktop files in /etc/xdg/autostart out of the way so
the applets don't start on login.
Reopening/reassigning (gtk2), so that we have an open/active bug for tracking
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 It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
