Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 839528
BOINC does not close on KDE task manager
Last modified: 2013-12-26 04:51:48 EST
Description of problem:
When you close the BOINC manager window, the entry in KDE task manager bar still remains there as if I minimized the window. Please notice that this is not the tray icon, it is another thing.
To make it disappear from KDE task manager bar you have to right click on it and then click on exit.
I wrote about this bug in Karma process but nobody paid attention to it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I see the same problem og Fedora 16
Fedora 18 is affected too by this bug
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
Confirming on Fedora 19.
Are there any plans to fix it?
This is working as planned by Boinc developers, it's the correct behaviour, nothing to fix.
it cannot be intended behaviour, if I want to close a window, it must close, not minimize on opened application bar ( != tray icon)
As I said, this is how boinc manager interface works. There's nothing we can do to change this behavior here.
If you think this is not what you want, you can open a request to boinc developers in the boinc bug tracker (http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/) asking to change this.
Here we produce the package for Fedora, we don't add or remove features to software.
