Description matobinder 2013-07-07 22:41:31 EDT
Not sure what to call it, but when I talk about "username widget," I am referring to the widget at the top left of the screen.(its the one with the Notifications, Logout, Lock, Poweroff" It shows my Full Name

Description of problem:

When I select "Settings" from the "username widget". Nothing happens. No menu or anything.

Looking at /var/log/messages I see these errors happen directly when I select "settings"

 /etc/gdm/Xsession[2667]: JS ERROR: !!!   Exception in callback for signal: activate
 /etc/gdm/Xsession[2667]: JS ERROR: !!!     message = '"app is null"'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This using Fedora 19, yum updated as of July 7 20:00 MDT.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login
2. On top right, click on users name
3. Then select "Settings"

Actual results:
Nothing happens, the above error message in /var/log/messages

Expected results:
I would expect a "Settings" menu to come up

Additional info:

I did create a brand new "test user account" without any custom mods, and it also happens. I did just install Fedora 19, so I haven't done much with it yet.

Ok, so never mind. Sorry, I had accidentally un-installed the control-center RPM earlier. I just added control-center and orca back in, and all is fine.

This is not a bug. User error = Me.

Sorry for submitting.
