Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 531344
lightning reminder does not come to front.
Last modified: 2013-10-30 11:21:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Running lightning pluging. Reminder notices are not popping up to the foreground and so are pretty much worthless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I solved this with some KDE window specific settings to force the window to always be on top and sticky across all desktops. It would be nice if Sunbird did it itself, though.
1. Go to KDE System Settings -> Window Behavior -> Window Specific -> New
2. Window Tab:
Description: Sunbird Reminders
Window class: calendar
Match whole window class: unchecked
Window role: alarmwindow
3. Window Extra tab:
Window Types: Dialog Window
4. Geometry tab:
Desktop - Force - All Desktops
5. Preferences tab:
Keep Above - Force - (checked)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.
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 12'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 12 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:
Still a problem.
Looks like upstream is still debating what to do.
This appears to be fixed now in 2.6.
