Description srh 2009-01-04 08:24:01 UTC
Description of problem:
In Fedora 9, the deskbar applet queried the tracker search tool database as
part of presenting its results. In Fedora 10, under 'Deskbar Preferences',
Tracker is not available to tick as a wanted loaded extension. The ability is
access Tracker from deskbar applet is very useful.

The following files are installed on this Fedora 10 computer as part of normal
package installation:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name       : deskbar-applet
Arch       : i386
Version    : 2.24.1
Release    : 2.fc10

Name       : tracker
Arch       : i386
Version    : 0.6.6
Release    : 3.fc10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install tracker and deskbar-applet
2.Look for tracker extension under 'Deskbar preferences'
3.No can find.

Expected results:
Use Tracker results within deskbar-applet.

More info:
This is a duplicate bug report of Fedora bugzilla bug 476608, as I'm not sure which package (deskbar-applet or tracker) is bug belongs too and I haven't had a reply to the other bug report yet. Feel free to mark the appropriate bug report redundant, whichever package this bug doesn't apply to.

Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-02-13 00:43:22 UTC
Confirmed; a fix is simply to replace one line in tracker-module.py to import gnomedesktop instead of deskbar.core.gnomedesktop.

Reported upstream, and a patched build will be available soon.
