Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 872091
lid close settings don't work
Last modified: 2013-01-10 10:45:16 EST
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.
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.
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.
gnome-tweak-tool-3.6.1-2.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing gnome-tweak-tool-3.6.1-2.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.

then log in and leave karma (feedback).
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
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).
gnome-tweak-tool-3.6.1-2.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
