Comment 1 Andy Campbell 2013-07-03 15:31:16 UTC
Confirmed.  Seeing the same in F19.

Comment 2 Bruce-Robert Pocock 2013-07-25 18:45:11 UTC
As I understand it, the "plug-ins" option was removed from the Control Center some time ago. Presumably "drwright" needs to be patched to provide its own settings window?

Until then, I'd say the app is unusable?

Comment 3 Bruce-Robert Pocock 2013-07-31 22:09:31 UTC
Found a work-around [ugly'ish]: run drwright from a terminal or Alt+F2.

It seems to initialize itself and add itself to the session, surviving reboots. The configuration can (only) be accessed via dconf-editor (or, presumably, gsettings in the shell), which is a little problematic because the "postpone" button is disabled by default.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
