  • blocked set to 341

For this the gtkunique library needs to be integrated in mainmenu
gtkunique was developed for gtk+ 2.10, so we might need to backport it.

  • Owner changed from cj_steven@… to stefan@…

Stefan Schmidt will take care about a) backporting and b) integrating it into
main menu.

comment:3 Changed 12 years ago by elrond+bugzilla.openmoko.org@…

  • Priority changed from high to normal
  • Component changed from openmoko-mainmenu to openmoko-libs
  • Summary changed from Main Menu needs to have Single Instance functionality to Generic Single Instance Functionality
  • I guess, this bug does not anymore affect main menu, as it is now in the panel plugin.


  • This whole thing still applies on a more generic level (dialer comes to mind very quickly)

So I'm:

  • Retitling
  • Re-Assigning to openmoko-libs component, which seems to be the second best fit for "framework global".
  • Changed Priority from P2 to P3: We can live without single instance for a while

closing this here.
