Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 87567
The workspace swicher forgets the workspace names between sessions
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:05 EDT
Description of problem:
If the panel workspace switcher is used and the user renames the workspaces,
these are reset to Workspace 1, Workspace 2, etc. upon logging out and starting
a new session
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add workspace switcher to panel
2. Rename workspaces
3. Log out and back in
Workspace names reset.
Renamed workspace names should be persistent.
I filed this as a bug against 8.0.94, but it still hasn't been fixed.
What window manager? Can you give me the bug # of your earlier report?
The old bug was #84978 and the window manager is your very own Metacity.
OK, marking duplicate. There's no need to have two bugs (the version it was
filed against isn't really that relevant, as long as the bug is still open).
gconftool-2 -R /apps/metacity/workspace_names
shows the persistent data, fwiw. If there are names in there other than
blank values it would be good to know.
