Will consider for a future release
Comment 2 Linus Walleij 2002-10-11 10:28:23 EDT
The problem is actually NOT that the conduits are not there. The conduit has
been merged with "gpilotd-control-applet" but this applet needs special
commandline options to start up in conduit mode, so running:

gpilotd-control-applet --cap-id=1

will start the conduit interface. This is however not available anywhere in the
menus of RedHat 8.0 as far as I can see. There is a desktop shortcut at:


but in the new desktop this is nowhere to be found... I think this should go in
Preferences/Control Center menu and immediately under Preferences, like the main
control tool.

Perhaps this bug should be escalated to the Gnome bugzilla, please enlighten me
on the issue and I will gladly file it there as well.

This was a problem in RedHat 7.3 too, so please let us fix it now.

You are mixing things up. Effectively there is no icon to bring up the conduits
settings dialog (see bug #75345) but that is not the issue here.

The issue here is that only two conduits come with gnome-pilot: file and backup.
The othere interesting conduits (evolution aside) are in the
gnome-pilot-conduits package which is not included in RedHat 8.0.
