Bug Fix Advisory gnome-session bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1220-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated gnome-session packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The gnome-session package provides a utility to start up and manage the GNOME
desktop session. Gnome-session starts up other core components of GNOME and
handles log-outs and saves the sessions.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the gnome-session utility did not fully honor the
"Hidden=" key in autostart desktop files. As a consequence, users could not mark
autostart files as Hidden= in their home directory to disable autostart files in
system directories.With this update, gnome-session allows users to "mask" system
autostart files by installing a file of the same name in ~/.config/autostart
with a key Hidden=true when loading autostart files. (BZ#477688)

All users of gnome-session are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix this bug.
