Description of problem:
Gnome magnifier does not work.
Orca magnifier does not work.
Brand new installation, updated, no 3rd party repos used at point of failure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome magnifier = 0.15.7
Orca = 2.26.3
Try to run magnifier (using the -m switch is the normal procedure, but no switch seems to make a difference; for example attempting to set the display through the -t -s switches [i.e. magnifier -t 0 -s 0 -m] still fails, albeit with a different error)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to run magnifier -m
2. Try to run magnifier
3. Try to run magnifier -t 0 -s 0
4. Start orca through the command line. Go to the magnifier tab and click the "enable magnifier" checkbox.
Using the -m switch is the normal procedure, but no switch seems to make a difference; for example attempting to set the display through the -t -s switches [i.e. magnifier -t 0 -s 0 -m] still fails, albeit with a different error).
Orca's magnifier interface also fails to start.

The magnifier would start.
This is a killer for anyone who is sight impaired. I know it may not seem urgent, but it really is a blocker in my opinion, since it kills Fedora's accessibility.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '11'.
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 11'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 11 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 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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.
