gnome-session 3.4.1-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


gnome-session (3.4.1-1ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

  * Merge with Debian. Remaining changes:
   - debian/
     + gnome-session
       - Recommend nautilus and either unity, unity-2d or gnome-shell
       - Only suggest gnome-session-fallback (we don't want it to be installed
         by default)
       - Drop the Recommends on gnome-power-manager, the code gnome-session uses
         has moved to gnome-settings-daemon
     + gnome-session-fallback
       - Recommend cups-pk-helper for gnome-session-fallback so that
         System Settings>Printers works
   - debian/gnome-session-bin.postinst, debian/gnome-session-bin.prerm:
      Moved registering gnome-session binary as a session manager to
      gnome-session-bin package
   - debian/postinst, postrm:
      set the default lightdm session as ubuntu if none already set
   - don't install defaults.list (installed by desktop-file-utils in ubuntu):
      debian/gnome-session-common.dirs and gnome-session-common.install
   - add debian/gnome-session-common.gsettings-override:
     set ubuntu as the default session if nothing is provided
   - debian/55gnome-session_gnomerc:
      Use POSIX string substitutions (shell internal) instead of external
      basename and cut for startup speed.
   - debian/patches/20_hide_nodisplay.patch:
      Don't show applications in the Sessions properties dialog that have
   - debian/patches/21_up_start_on_demand.patch:
      Don't call dkp_client_new() until actually needed. This blocks
      for some time whilst DK-Power is started, if it wasn't running already
      (which is the case during auto-login). This can delay the whole
      session from starting.
   - debian/patches/22_support_autostart_delay.patch:
      Bugzilla patch to support adding a delay to autostart apps, using
      a "X-GNOME-Autostart-Delay" key in the desktop file
   - debian/patches/50_ubuntu_sessions.patch:
      + Add Ubuntu & Ubuntu 2D sessions
      + Add GNOME Classic (Without Effects session). Use notify-osd for
        notifications, but don't add it to RequiredComponents since notify-osd
        doesn't have an autostart .desktop file
      + gnome-shell.desktop adds --session=gnome now that the "ubuntu" session
        is the default. Use TryExec to test if gnome-shell is installed.
   - debian/patches/51_remove_session_saving_from_gui.patch:
      add GNOME_SESSION_SAVE environment variable for people wanting to
      use the save session still, knowing that it can break your system
      if used unwisely (LP: #771896)
   - debian/patches/52_xdg_current_desktop.patch:
      Set XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP inside gnome-session based on a
      new key 'DesktopName' in gnome-session .desktop files.
   - debian/patches/80_new_upstream_session_dialog.patch:
      Bugzilla patch to change the session dialog. (Deactivated, see bug 807503)
   - debian/patches/95_dbus_request_shutdown.patch:
      Add "RequestShutdown" and "RequestReboot" DBus methods to allow other
      applications to shutdown or reboot the machine via the session manager.
   - debian/patches/96_no_catch_sigsegv.patch:
      Don't register a handler for SIGSEGV. We want Apport to catch these
      crashes so that users can submit useful crash reports.
   - debian/patches/101_screen_lock_on_suspend.patch:
      Use the same logic as gnome-power-manager for deciding the "screen
      lock on suspend" policy. This restores the Jaunty behaviour rather
      than just using the screensaver settings, which is surprising for
      This patch is deactivated for now, we'll see with the new screensaver and
      screen locking experience what to do (not rebased on gsettings as well)
    - debian/patches/103_kill_the_fail_whale.patch:
      seems that the fail whale try to come back and resist from his removal
      refreshed the patch to ensure it's killed and won't come back ever ever
    - 104_dont_show_fallback_warning.patch:
      Disable GNOME Fallback warning. It doesn't really explain anything
      and assumes that there aren't people that want to run Fallback.
    - debian/patches/105_hide_session_startup_help.patch:
      Hide Help button on Startup Applications dialog, as it is broken
      and the help documentation hasn't been written for 3.x yet.
