Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440556
Pup dialog appears on screen even when running programs in full screen mode
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:55:34 EST
Description of problem:
I have noticed a minor problem with the package updater (pup) and running
programs in full screen mode. e.g. If I play the game Glest, it runs in full
screen mode, but occasionally whilst playing the package updater pops on to the
screen with a message about new updates. The problem is that once the dialog has
appeared it is impossible to get rid of it, because if a program is operating in
full screen mode then obviously all the mouse and keyboard input is captured by
the program, not fed to the desktop.
I guess this could be fixed by pup checking if a full screen mode program was
running before displaying its dialog box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a program in full screen mode.
2. Wait for new packages to become available via pup.
3. Observe that the pup dialog box appears on the screen and can't be got rid of.
This does not seem to be a package review submission; changing component.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
