Description of problem:
Updating to gnome-terminal-2.33.0-2.fc15.x86_64, I can't get a working gnome-terminal....
Starting one produces a "full screen" window with no active shell, not responsive to keystrokes, mouse clicks, etc.
If I start an 'xterm' window and start gnome-terminal from that, I see:
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pk-gtk-module": libpk-gtk-module.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Downgrading to gnome-terminal-2.33.0-1.fc15.x86_64 appears to "make it work for me".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
At least here the shell is started but the vte widget itself if extended much beyond the dimensions of the g-t window above its upper end. Hold enter and the prompt will show itself when the lines fill. Something similar is happening to the right.
After digging into this for most of today, it's significantly hard to make the gtk3 build work right. Changes in gtk3 behavior:
Have broken both the workarounds for handling gridding correctly:
And the basic way that resizing in gnome-terminal works correctly. I'll work more on getting good fixes upstream, but for now building a new gnome-terminal that reverts back to gtk2:
So we have a working terminal in rawhide.
gnome-terminal-2.33.0-3.fc15.x86_64 works for me.....
Leave this open until the sizing is 'fixed'?
See referenced gnome-terminal bug and the GTK+ bugs it depends upon for fixes.
(Ended up fixing a GTK+ bug that I introduced to GTK+ in 1998 and filed in GNOME bugzilla in 2002, so I guess that's some good forcing of dealing with bugs that have been around too long. Or *I've* just been around GNOME too long. One or the other.)
