Plugins configuration is not re-read after close-open of Preferences dialog
Last modified: 2014-09-14 20:03:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Plugins configuration is not re-read after close-open of Preferences dialog.
When I run 2 instances of Gnome application like Gedit or Totem plugins configuration dialogs doesn't reflect changes between multiple application instances like other configuration options/tabs do. This should be consistent with other Properties tabs where configuration is being reread after each time configuration dialog is (re)opened.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Run 2 Gedit instances on 2 machines with shared home.
1. Choose "Edit" - "Preferences" in first Gedit instance and select "Plugins" tab. Then enable "Quick Open" plugin and click "Close".
2. Choose "Edit" - "Preferences" in second Gedit instance and select "Plugins" tab.
Plugins configuration dialog in second Gedit instance does not reflect changes did on first Gedit instance. "Quick Open" plugin is disabled.
"Quick Open" plugin should be enabled.
All configuration changes should be consistent and predictable when running multiple application instances.
There is a shared component in the plugin system of those two applications: libpeas. EOG uses it as well it, can you confirm the bug is reproducible there as well?
Anyway, it looks to me that the plugin configuration is stored as a GSettings key, so I suspect this is due to dconf still missing full support for NFS home directories. Such support is supposed to land upstream this cycle, so we'll see if that helps with this specific situation.
Reassigning to libpeas for the moment.
I can reproduce this bug in EOG.
If we DConf doesn't update GSettings on the other machine, there's nothing libpeas can do.
