Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 382791
gnome-applet-music doesn't work on fedora 8
Last modified: 2008-04-09 02:08:01 EDT
Description of problem:
the gnome-applet-music doesn't work, it just loads but then the icon doesn't
appear on the panel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
install the gnome-applet-music and then try to add it on the panel, the icon
Steps to Reproduce:
it doesn't work
the music applet icon should appear
When you restart your computer, does the applet properly appear? If so, you may
experiencing bug 240824. (In which case, please reopen that with more details.)
Does 2.2.1 (in updates-testing) fix this for you?
Ivan, it has been over one month since the last activity on this bug. Are you
still experiencing this issue with 2.2.1 (now stable)?
Please let me know. If in one week I do not receive further confirmation or
details, I will close this bug due to lack of response. Thanks.
It's now working, but when I restart X it doesn't
Ivan, does this issue persist with 2.3.0-1 (now stable).
The case is when gnome crashes the applet disappear, we just see only a line
I have a problem with gnome-applet-music-2.3.0-1.fc8
start the PC
log in via GDM
we assume the user has the music applet enabled in the panel
click on the icon - rhythmbox starts
Expected result: the applet controls should appear
Actual result: the applet remains inactive, even is you could play music in
rhythmbox and so on. The rhuthmbox plugin is enabled, more over it is started
via the applet.
This happened after the last update (21.03.2008)
I just noticed this too...ugh. It seems only Rhythmbox is affected, though.
Banshee, Muine both work nicely with it. I was hoping it was due to my
part-rawhide/part-F8 setup but that does not now appear to be the case. :(
While trying to track this down I noticed that rhythmbox-client never prints the
current song data and instead seems to hang until Rhythmbox is closed. This
leads me to believe that there is something wrong with how Rhythmbox is
communicating via D-Bus to its clients.
I will try to get some more details about this and post a new bug for it.
Okay, so Music Applet works beautifully with Rhythmbox in Rawhide.
F-8 is using Rhythmbox 0.11.3, versus Rawhide's 0.11.5; so there may be
something between the two where the issue was fixed upstream. Time to delve into
the SVN logs... :o
And again this bug escapes me. After today's updates Music Applet and Rhythmbox
work beautifully (and rhythmbox-client works as expected). Nothing in my updates
log shows anything suspicious though." ;_;
Ivan, please update your system and let me know if the issue persists. Thanks.
music applet is now working fine in F8
Excellent. Thanks, Ivan.
I'll therefore close this bug as WORKSFORME. Please feel free to re-open it
again at a later time with more details should the problem once again show its
ugly face. =)
