Unable to unlock gnome date and time settings
Last modified: 2014-04-07 22:05:12 EDT
Description of problem:
When I open the date and time settings from gnome system settings I am unable to change any settings because the dialog is locked. If I try to click the unlock button nothing happens. I've tried running "gnome-control-center -o" in the terminal - it runs but doesn't produce any messages.
As it might be related, I have also noticed that if I try to enable ntp using system-config-date I get:
"Couldn't write either /etc/ntp.conf or /etc/sysconfig/network.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not sure which component this is but I have applied all updates as of 19th September
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open gnome system settings
2.Click on Date & Time
The dialog does not unlock.
The dialog to unlock or ask me for a password
Just applied the latest updates and retested. It now works as expected so I'm closing this bug.
This is happening for Fedora 20 now.
The strange thing is that abrt is not catching it...
Anyway, same steps to reproduce. Just try turning it on and use journalctl -f to check the error... or ausearch...
# ausearch -i -sv no -ts recent
