KOrganizer Reminder Daemons don't Remind if computer was turned off
Last modified: 2008-09-28 18:29:16 EDT
Description of problem:
When KOrganizer triggers a reminder, one is given the option to suspend the
reminder for a duration of time. This works fine, as long as one doesn't turn
off the computer and back on again (this used to work correctly in kde3).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Wait until a reminder is triggered and select suspend and select a desired wait
time. If the computer remains turned on, it works, but if you power off and then
later back on again, KOrganizer forgets all suspended reminders.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set a reminder
2.Wait until it is triggerred
3.Suspend it for any desired duration
4.Turn off the computer and turn it back on again before the event is to be
5.You never get reminded
As it used to be in previous versions of KDE (3, etc), the reminders should be
remembered even when the computer was turned off and should trigger at the set
time. For example, if one suspends the reminder for 5 hours and turns the
computer off for 2 hours and back on again, the reminder should still be
triggerred after 3 hours from the time it was turned back on again (ie, 5 hours
from when it was initially triggerred, regardless of whether the computer was
running or turned off during the interim).
none comes to mind
Uh, KOrganizer is part of kdepim which is still version 3.5.9 in F9 as in F8,
so I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe it's setting itself up as a service in a
KDE-3-specific path which KDE 4 doesn't know about?
We're you using kdepim-3.5.9 on F8 when this was working? Maybe what you're
seeing is a regression?
Yes, it was working in F8, before KDE4 was released.
Do you recall what version of kdepim you were using? 3.5.8? 3.5.9?
I am not certain, but what I do know is that I always update my system to the
latest at least twice a day, and I enable testing repos for fedora and livna.
Is this still an issue with KDE4.0.4?
We have updated, as of last week, to KDE4.0.5. Yes, it is still an issue. The
reminders do not survive a power off, although in KDE3* they did.
Ok checked upstream and could not find a matching bug. Please add at upstream
report at bugs.kde.org we will monitor upstream for a resolution.
I don't have an account there. Guess I will have to. It is a vital function,
after all, that I use all the time, since I always turn my compute o ff when I'm
not using it.
I have switched to Rex' 4.0.80 and it is great, a vast improvement over 4.0.5,
but the problem persists.
Were you able to report upstream? If so please add upstream info to this
report, otherwise if you want I can file it upstream for you.
I tried to report upstream on bugs.kde.org, but I am not sure if it 'took'. The
interface is very confusing, and I had to go through countless levels of
comparison with already existing bugs. As a 'mere' user, this is not my concern,
whether someone has already filed the same bug and then trying to determine what
he has decided to call it and how he decided to describe it. I experience a
problem and I report it. I tried to make a new bug report, but as yet there has
been no notification. That was a few days back now. Perhaps it was seem as a
duplicate? Perhaps they haven't gotten to processing it yet?
Yes your bug was submitted see http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=164088
according to comments in the report the upstream developers have submitted a fix
for this issue. Thanks
I'm pretty sure that upstream bug is about a different issue, not this one.
reopening (please feel free to correct me if my analysis is wrong).
kwhiskerz, if you're uncertain of the status of your upstream report, please try
filing it again.
Its the same reporter with same issues mentioned. Mark as fixed and closed upstream.
