Description Jonathan Underwood 2009-11-19 21:39:17 UTC
Description of problem:
When running a gnome session in a remote vnc session, gnome-power-manager puts an icon in the toolbar with a hover over message which reads:

"Session active, not inhibited, screen idle. If you can see this text, your display server is broken and you should notify your distributor. Please see http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2009/08/17/gnome-power-manager-and-blanking-removal-of-bodges/ for more information"

This may be a bug in gnome-power-manager really, since power management inside of a vnc session  is presumably fairly meaningless. Not sure.

Comment 2 Jonathan Underwood 2009-11-19 23:22:21 UTC
Interestingly, I just pulled across the tigervnc-server-1.0.0-3.fc12.x86_64 package from updates testing and restarted the session, and let the screen saver kick in, and now I don't see the icon from gnome-power-manager, so it seems fixed in this package, probably by the change in 1.0.0-2:

- update underlying X source to 1.6.4-0.3.fc11

Will leave this open for now until I'm sure it's fixed.

If it was a bug in the main X.Org source then this issue should be fixed. Closing.
