Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 984042
Zenity doesn't support the '--no-cancel' option in progress mode
Last modified: 2017-12-06 07:03:28 EST
Description of problem:
We've now had a couple of third party application installers that use zenity with the '--no-cancel' option in progress mode
Unfortunately, the version of zenity that ships with RHEL 6 is quite old and doesn't support the '--no-cancel' option in progress mode
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run: zenity --progress --no-cancel
This option is not available. Please see --help for all possible usages.
zenity runs in progress mode without a Cancel button
The last 2.x series release of zenity (2.32.1) supports this option - could zenity be upgraded to this version for RHEL 6 ?
