Description Tim Waugh 2007-03-21 12:19:43 UTC
Description of problem:
For Fedora 7 there is a new, vastly simpler, greatly improved implementation of
eggcups, the print job icon/queue manager program.  It no longer registers with
the GNOME session and instead should be run using the /etc/xdg/autostart mechanism.

Please take eggcups out from the redhat-default-session.  Once that is done I
can put an eggcups.desktop file in the desktop-printing package to get the
autostart mechanism working.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.grep eggcups /usr/share/gnome/default.session

I will commit your patch right now.

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-03-21 15:03:52 UTC
Oh, one complication we'll hit is upgrades. eggcups will still be in the session
for users.  Does the new eggcups handle being started twice okay?

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2007-03-21 15:19:07 UTC
Hm, it'll show up twice in the systray. :-(

I could make it quit if start with a --sm-client-id option -- would that be okay?

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-03-21 15:30:00 UTC
That would probably be good enough.

If it has a dbus service, you could use that make sure there is only one running.

Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-03-21 15:37:02 UTC
okay, should be gone from the default session in gnome-session-2.18.0-2.fc7

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2007-03-21 16:47:12 UTC
Great, thanks.

Unfortunately although eggcups does provide a service on the system bus, it
needs to be able to run concurrently for different users on the same machine
(with or without that service).  It doesn't provide any session bus service.  So
I'll go with the --sm-client-id==quit approach.
