Description Christoph Wickert 2012-10-28 16:44:12 UTC
Description of problem:
In Xfce 4.8 we shipped a patch to enable additional keyboard shortcuts like print screen or window with xfce4-screenshooter, volume up/down or other multimedia keys. When Kevin updated to Xfce 4.10, he did not take care of the patch, this means many shortcuts that used to work will no longer work in F18.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
I have already fixed this in libxfce4ui-4.10.0-3.fc18. This bug is only to follow the blocker/NTH bug process as we are already frozen. I consider this important for the Xfce spin, this is why I would like propose it as NTH. I only changed the configuration file /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml, nothing else, so I don't see a high risk with this package, even though it's critical path for Xfce.

Comment 1 Fedora Update System 2012-10-28 16:45:15 UTC
libxfce4ui-4.10.0-3.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.

Comment 2 Tim Lauridsen 2012-10-29 07:35:29 UTC
I have installed the package and did a "Settings->Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts -> Reset to Default" to get the updated shortcuts.
Then PrintScreen and others was working as expected.

Package libxfce4ui-4.10.0-3.fc18:

Dear QA people, please let us kown if you accept this as NTH or not.

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2012-10-31 19:50:28 UTC
Discussed at 2012-10-31 NTH review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-10-31/f18beta-blocker-review-6.2012-10-31-16.00.log.txt . Accepted as NTH as this is a significant regression in Xfce which cannot be entirely fixed with an update (it affects live boots). The fix is specific to Xfce and looks safe.

Update went stable. Closing. (Bodhi closing of bugs when updates go stable is currently broken).
