Description Emopig 2009-02-15 20:13:59 UTC

Early last year I filed a patch with GNOME and fixed a slight annoyance with Gnome Panel showing the 'Switch User' button on the logout dialog when GDM isn't running and spitting out an error message on the terminal. This patch was accepted into GNOME and can be found here:

Unfortunately because Gentoo uses gnome-session 2.22 it has reverted the GNOME panel logout code in a patch now in portage, but this change wasn't included.

Attached is a revised "gnome-panel-2.24.2-logout.patch" which includes this fix. It is a minor issue, but quite nice for Gentoo users to have since gnome-light doesn't pull in the GDM and therefore not everyone uses it.

Reproducible: Always

This completely replaces "gnome-panel-2.24.2-logout.patch" already in portage.

Here are the changes, can be applied on top of "gnome-panel-2.24.2-logout.patch" already in portage.

Sounds like a nice thing to have. Overlooking patchs looks goods.
Comment 4 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2009-02-26 23:23:32 UTC
included in 2.24.3-r1. Thanks for reporting and the patch.
