Applications and workspaces not remembered on session-restore
Last modified: 2015-02-19 02:47:39 EST
Description of problem:
This is a regression from F18: I updated to F19 via fedup and upon logout/login, all the applications start on workspace 1, instead of the shell creating as many workspaces as were enabled during the logout.
E.g. I have an instance of Firefox on workspace 5. F18 used to start firefox on workspace 5 on login, but on F19, it's started on workspace 1.
This also used to work for multiple instances of the same app. e.g. I had several instances of evince showing different pdfs on various workspaces: 1, 4, 5, etc.. and on F18, the evince windows used to show up properly on the workspace they were originally on.
Is that with an extension that stopped working? There was never any code in gnome-shell to restore applications on startup ...
No, I don't have any extensions. gnome-session-properties has a checkbox for 'remember applications on logout', I have that turned on.
Mmh, I wasn't aware that gnome-session remembered workspaces ... reassigning to gnome-session then, which is the component that does session saving.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Re-opened as #1194153 since it's still a problem in Fedora 21.
