Description of problem:
XFCE4 window manager keeps forgetting my workspaces' names.
I assigned each of the four XFCE4 workspaces a unique name (using the workspace setup program at the path /usr/bin/xfwm4-workspace-settings). If I then logout of XFCE4 and login back, the names are preserved as expected. However, if I shutdown or reboot the computer, all my custom workspace names are lost and reverted to the default names, EXCEPT the first, active workspace.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
See the section `Description of problem'
1. Name the workspaces
3. Login back again
Workspaces' names are lost.
They should have persisted between reboots and logins.
When ending an XFCE4 session, I always leave the "Save sessions" checker box un-checked, because the functionality of loading saved sessions is having a lot of glitches at best, if not totally broken. If however I do save sessions, the workspace names *are* saved too.
But since other window manager settings are persistent no matter I save sessions or not, I expect the workspace settings to be the same, which unfortunately is not. And I don't think this is a correct behavior by design: it would be more reasonable to reset *all* workspaces should there be such a feature.
Thanks for your time and patience in maintaining the package.
I don't see any existing upstream bug on this aready. Would you be willing to file one there?
If not, I can do so. If you're willing you may be able to provide faster info on the issue for them.
Thanks for the bug report!
Would you like me to keep this bug open? Or just close it and follow things upstream?
(I added myself to CC there to follow it).
Sorry for the late reply. I believe you can close this bug for now. It's not really a serious matter and I'll wait for upstream patches.
Excellent. Thanks for reporting this... I will look at applying the fix as soon as it's landed upstream.
