Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456473
GNOME panel sticks on the top of the screen even if positioned at the bottom
Last modified: 2009-08-03 08:50:45 EDT
Description of problem:
I prefer to have the panel with the main menu at the bottom instead of the top
of the screen, and the panel with the window list at the top. It's easy to
reposition the two panels, either by setting the preferences or by dragging them
around. The problem is that when I log back in the panel with the window list is
at the top as expected, but the panel with the menu is positioned right below
it, as if they were stacked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.drag panel with menu to the bottom of the screen, and the panel with the
window list to the top
The panel with the window list is positioned at the top, but the panel with the
menu is positioned right below it
The panel with the menu should be positioned at the bottom of the screen
The panel with the menu is configured with "expand" set to "no".
Well, I just found out it is not always reproducible. I just logged in and
panels are where I told them to be. Since I rearranged applets across panels
yesterday, I will investigate further to see if there's any relation with which
applets are present on each panel.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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.
I can report the exact same behaviour on Fedora 11: Menu at bottom, window-bar at the top. Bottom-panel set to "auto-disappear" and "don't-expand". After login the bottom panel sticks to the top panel instead of staying at the bottom.
To temp-fix it, you have to set to bottom panel to "expand", then set it to bottom and then to "don't expand" again. This will fix it until the next login...
I haven't upgraded to F11 yet, so I can't post my own experience, but I guess this is enough reason to reopen it.
... that is if I knew how to reopen it :-( AFAICS I can only change the status to "ASSIGNED", is this what I should do?
