Description Tom London 2008-10-15 10:14:00 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed from Spin1; the gnome panel did not have tomboy.  [System has been updated to rawhide/koji.]

Right clicking on top panel and selecting "Add to Panel" and scrolling down to "Tomboy Notes" produces an Error popup with the text:

The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:TomboyApplet".

and the usual "Don't delete"/"Delete" choice.

The only message I find is this in .xsession-errors:

** (gnome-panel:3116): WARNING **: panel-applet-frame.c:1285: failed to load applet OAFIID:TomboyApplet:
System exception: IDL:Bonobo/GeneralError:1.0 : Child process did not give an error message, unknown failure occurred

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to gdm/gnome. 
2. Try to add "tomboy" to top panel
Actual results:

Expected results:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=555318 Panel applet fails to load with gnome-sharp < 2.23.90
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=414789  Error dialog when adding Tomboy to panel (if it's already in the notification area) is confusing and may lead to the user getting errors on every log in

http://mail.gnome.org/archives/ftp-release-list/2008-September/msg00087.html gnome-sharp 2.24.0
http://mail.gnome.org/archives/ftp-release-list/2008-October/msg00009.html : tomboy 0.12.1
Version 0.12.1
* Bundle gnome-sharp panel applet code (as we did prior to 0.11.3) if building
  against gnome-sharp < 2.23.90.  See bug #555318 for details.

Then, < gnome-sharp-2.20.0-2.fc10, tomboy-0.12.0-2.fc10 > in rawhide.

Comment 5 Tom London 2008-10-27 18:18:40 EDT
koji update of tomboy, gnome-sharp, gnome-desktop-sharp to 2.24.0 fixes this for me.
