Description Matthew Miller 2008-03-27 11:13:17 EDT
Description of problem:

Many of the menu entries under Settings fail to actually do anything. If one
runs xfce-setting-show from the command line, it just returns instantly without
doing anything.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

xfce-mcs-manager-4.4.2-2.fc9.x86_64 (Rawhide)

How reproducible:

100% on this system -- haven't tried other machines.
Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2008-03-27 11:59:30 EDT
xfce-setting-show should just return, it sends a message via xfce-mcs to the
xfce-mcs-manager to show the settings window with all the various sections. 

I can't duplicate this here... it works just fine for me. 

Are you sure this window isn't just appearing somewhere you aren't looking? 
Do you have xfce-mcs-manager running? 
Is there anything in ~/.xsession-errors ?
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2008-03-27 12:15:02 EDT
xfce-mcs-manager is running. Nothing in  ~/.xsession-errors.

This is a new F9 beta install, although I  did preserve /home. But it also
happens on a new test user, so it's not just cruft in my dotfiles.

What's the mechanism of communication between xfce-setting-show and
xfce-mcs-manager? Perhaps something is broken there.
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2008-03-28 13:27:48 EDT

selinux enabled? Anything in your /var/log/audit/audit.log?

How are you logging in? Is ConsoleKit running and 'ck-list-sessions' showing
your session?

How did you install Xfce? 'yum groupinstall XFCE' ? If you run that now does it
pull in any new packages that were not installed before? 
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2008-03-28 13:32:36 EDT
Okay, so, after running yum upgrade this morning -- which upgraded *no* xfce
packages -- and rebooting, it works. *shrug*

Thanks for looking.
