Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 832716
Gnome terminal opacity resets to 0
Last modified: 2013-08-01 00:06:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnome-terminal's background opacity is reset to 0 every first time it starts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set background to transparent
2. Set opacity to 0.85
3. Close all terminal windows
4. Start gnome-terminal
Terminal starts with 0 opacity
Terminal should start with the defined opacity(in this case 0.85)
Tried to set the key in gconf-editor as mandatory with no luck and also setting ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal as immutable after setup changed nothing
This is happening on Fedora 18 as well.
Since this bug has been filed on Jun 2012 and had no activity since then, I filed it upstream as well [https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=692753]. Response was: "Looks like a gconf bug to me; there's no code writing to the opacity gconf key when creating a new terminal."
Since it was filed as a F17 bug but is still present on F18, could the original poster update its info to reflect this? Or should I file another bug for F18?
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
