Last updated on: 2012-06-20

Details

An updated gnome-settings-daemon package that fixes several bugs and adds
various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The gnome-settings-daemon package contains a daemon to share settings from GNOME
with other applications. It also handles global key bindings, as well as a
number of desktop-wide settings.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, the selected keyboard layout on certain machines reverted to the
"US" layout every time the user logged in. With this update, the bug has been
fixed so that the selected keyboard layout is not reverted anymore. (BZ#693843)

* Previously, the automatic mapping of the screen tablet did not work with the
NVIDIA driver. With this update, support for the NV-CONTROL extension has been
added so that the automatic mapping of the screen tablet now works as expected.
(BZ#805036)

* Previously, the button mapping to actions did not work in the Wacom graphics
tablet plug-in. As a result, the Map Buttons did not display in the GUI and
activating buttons on the Wacom graphics tablet had no effect. With this update,
these problems have been fixed. (BZ#805042)

In addition, this update introduces the following feature enhancements:

* With this update, Wacom graphics tablets are now supported with
gnome-settings-daemon. (BZ#769464)

* This update modifies the way gnome-settings-daemon stores settings in GConf.
Previously, the settings were stored stored per user and per device. With this
update, the settings are now stored per user, per device, and per machine.
(BZ#816646)

All users of gnome-settings-daemon are advised to upgrade to this updated
package, which fixes these bugs and adds these enhancements.
