User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20071128 Fedora/220.127.116.11-2.fc8 Firefox/18.104.22.168
Description of problem:
When I load tilda, only rarely am I able to see the terminal and interact with it.
Most times, when it loads, the content area is either completely the text color or the background color. I know that the terminal session itself is working: I can type "exit" to close tilda, I can execute a command and see, for example, Firefox open. But, I cannot see the text in the session itself.
Cycling tilda between hidden and visible does not fix the problem when it's already occured. But if I cycle it when it starts out as working then the window invariable breaks and I can't see the text anymore.
Opening additional tabs when it's broken does not fix the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start tilda
2. If it starts out working, press the hotkey to make the window disappear.
The content area becomes unreadable.
The content area should be readable.
I'm running on a Dell D820 laptop with the nVidia hardware and driver.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '8'.
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 8'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 8 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 to the applicable version. 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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
