Description Paul Iadonisi 2002-08-19 21:05:59 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.3 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020523

Description of problem:
After enabling the gdm face browser in (null), I launched the gdmphotosetup
(Preferences->Login Photo) and tried to browse the filesystem by clicking the
Browse button.  The browsing window launches but never gets focus, making it

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install (null)
2.Enable the gdm face browser
  System Settings->Login Screen->Standard Greeter and click on "Show choosable
user images (face browser)"
3.Lauch Preferences->Login Photo (gdmphotosetup)
4.Click on the Browse button
5.Try browsing in the Browse window

Actual Results:  The browse window never gets focus, so it's not possible to
browse the filesystem to select a gdm photo.

Expected Results:  The browse window should get focus and allow the user to
browse the filesystem to select a gdm photo.

Additional info:

Tried in:

all failed as described above.

Ah, it appears that the browse file selector is shadowed by some modal window.
Comment 2 George Lebl 2002-08-21 02:37:14 EDT
This is fixed in (among many other cool things, coolest being the
girlfreidn approved icon of course:)
Comment 3 Elliot Lee 2002-08-26 14:45:17 EDT
This will have to wait - upgrading to gdm is a bit scary right now.
Comment 4 George Lebl 2002-08-26 19:56:54 EDT
You could just take the gdmphotosetup.c from .9 or .8 (it's the same) ... The
diff is not too big, want me to make a patch?
Comment 5 George Lebl 2002-08-26 19:58:53 EDT
hmmm, too easy to make a patch, attaching
