Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 822288
Incomprehensible experience when starting a chat
Last modified: 2013-07-31 14:43:31 EDT
Description of problem:
When double-clicking a name to start a chat, an item gets added to the bottom of the screen (visible on moving the mouse to the lower-right corner). The problem is that there's not even a hint that it's been added down there. It just looks broken.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest as of right now.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Empathy.
2. Double-click a contact.
Empathy/GNOME Shell secretly starts a chat on the bottom bar.
Something that visually indicates the creation of the chat on the bottom bar.
Empathy offers preferences that seem to have no effect when GNOME Shell manages the chat GUI.
Interesting: I rebooted, and now it seems to create chats in both a new window and in the GNOME Shell bar.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is 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 change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
