Description Ilya 2013-07-24 03:20:34 EDT
Bug was closed with 1.9.1-16.fc19 update, but it still here, and wasn't fixed. Also, bug reproduces in 1.9.1-17.fc19. 

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #976068 +++

Description of problem:
Starting with version 3.8.3 of gnome-settings-daemon, I can't switch layouts anymore. I've set up switching by Alt+Shift in GNOME System Settings (since there's no such option in Cinnamon Control Center), and it doesn't work now. Nothing happens when I press the combination. There's an interesting exception, though: switching works in GDM and GNOME Screensaver. It also works when I switch by mouse in system tray.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Got broken by this update: 
Worked fine before this update. There was a delay, but it was better than nothing.

How reproducible:
Always. I tried clearing settings, it doesn't help.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Cinnamon.
2. Set two different layouts in GNOME Control Center (Region and Language)
3. Set Alt+Shift as a switching combination (Modifiers-only switch to next source).

Sorry for my English.

This was removed from gnome-settings-daemon-3.8.3


I have submitted a cinnamon (cinnamon-1.9.1-14.fc19) build to return this function.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:04:35 EST
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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.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.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 11:19:58 EST
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.
