Description Robert Vojta 2001-10-20 16:56:23 UTC
Description of Problem:

When I want to add some applet to the gnome-panel (menu, edge, ...)
I can see some small stupid icon and no action, it means no applet
running, etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

fresh installed RedHat 7.2 Enigma from beta.redhat.com

How Reproducible:

simple install fresh RedHat 7.2 and try to add some applets, oh yeah,
some applets works, so for instance mini_commander and others from
utilities didn't work

Actual Results:

some applets works, most of them not

Expected Results:

all applets working

Comment 1 Robert Vojta 2001-10-20 17:27:58 UTC
It looks like not reproducible now. Sometimes I can run applets, sometimes
I can't. I restart my X & Gnome and everything works nice, restart again
and I can't run applets, ...

Comment 2 Robert Vojta 2001-10-21 12:33:11 UTC
I have additional info and screen shots for you ...

1) applets_working.jpg

  - fresh computer boot, fresh gnome start
  - adding my two applets and they are work
  - you can see this applets in screenshot

2) applets_non_working.jpg

  - I'm at point 1) and I only restart gnome from menu item from
    upper menu panel (Workspace -> Logout)
  - login and all my previous applets are not working, there are
    two icons as you can see in screen shot

3) applets_gnome_restart_after_non_working_applets.jpg

  - now, I have two stupid icons instead of applets
  - trying to restart gnome by the same way, Menu panel -> Workspace -> Logout
    and panel is going to die and nothing happens, it means that sawfish
    is still running but no restart here and no possibility to do something
    else, so I must hit Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, login again and I have no
    applets and no icons as you can see in last panel screen shot but I can
    add these applets again and I'm back at step 1), I have working applets
    till my next gnome restart

Things work for most people; this is some unusual transient failure. I don't
have many insights.

At this point few fixes are going in to GNOME 1.x, new development is on GNOME
2, so deferring most GNOME 1.x bugs.
