Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 682295
screensaver causes account to log off
Last modified: 2012-08-16 11:30:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Using the Gnome desktop.
There are two ways that this problem manifests.
1) from system -> preferences -> screensaver. When scrolling though the different options specific screensaver (apps?) causes fedora to return to the user login screen.
2) When the screensaver is running it periodically returns the user to the login screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The method the always causes the "log off" event is scrolling through the different screen savers in the screen saver selection application.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select system -> preferences -> screensaver
2. click on left hand panel listing the different screensavers
3. select BlockTube
3. arrow down; the log off event occurs around Bouncing Cow
The user is running multiple workspaces, two panels, firefox, and terminal. System is fully upgraded vF14.
Just ran update a lib<something> installed; logged off and on; the screensaver management app is now working. This lib may have fixed the problem? Sorry I don't remember the name nor do I know how to lookup install history.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
