Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459853
orage fails to do anything
Last modified: 2008-10-09 20:52:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting orage for the first time on Fedora9, no windows ever appear, it just sits running seemingly doing nothing. I'm seeing this behavior on two different Fedora9 systems. If I start it from a terminal window, I see the following output:
** Message: Orage **: Too small icon size, using static icon
** Message: Orage **: Build alarm list: Processed 0 events.
Found 0 alarms of which 0 are active. (Searched 0 recurring alarms.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% of the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'orage'
2. no windows ever appear
no windows ever appear
orage window with calendar appears
Odd. It sounds like orage is having trouble talking to your mcs-manager process.
I assume you are in a Xfce session when you run it?
(It requires xfce-mcs-manager running).
If you start it, logout (saving session) and login again does it start working?
I will try and duplicate here.
Yes, I'm logged into an XFCE session on both systems.
I do have an xfce-mcs-manager process running (since I logged into XFCE back on Aug 15). I left orage running, logged out of XFCE, then back in, but nothing has improved or changed.
Sorry for the delay here in getting back to you. ;(
Several things to try:
1. Does this happen if you create a new user and login as them?
2. Do you have a systray in one of your panels? Orage wants to appear in a systray.
3. As as last resort, Can you try doing a 'strace -o /tmp/trace.out -f orage' and attach the trace.out file?
orage comes up fine for me here, so I am not sure whats going on. ;(
Oddly, it works now. Marking fix-unknown.
