Description Samuel Sieb 2012-11-01 04:04:07 EDT
I set both of the lid close settings to "nothing" and the laptop suspends when I close the lid.  I tried setting it to "blank" and still the same result.

According to https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=687277 support for those options has been intentionally removed and a workaround is listed.  Very sad, but I guess those options should be removed from gnome-tweak-tool.
Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2012-11-01 13:55:48 EDT
Thanks for letting me know. The settings in question haven't been removed from gnome-settings-daemon as of 3.6.1, which is why I didn't notice any problem running g-t-t, but this should indeed be fixed.
Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2012-11-02 03:58:24 EDT
So Fedora (and Arch) backported the feature planned for GNOME 3.8 where GNOME no longer handles lid close behavior.

I've thus submitted the patch against gnome-tweak-tool master, requesting upstream to create a separate GNOME 3.6 branch for stable bugfixes, and built gnome-tweak-tool with the patch for Rawhide.

Can't build for F-18 yet as the mock builders currently have some repository inconsistencies; will try again in a few hours.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2012-11-16 21:03:02 EST
this should probably be in the release notes.

Docs team, you will want to see this bug:


which has discussion of the change, and most pertinently, the new way to disable suspend-on-lid-close (via systemd).
