Workspace wrapping config doesn't apply on startup.


Description Étienne Gilli 2009-01-22 19:37:33 CET

Though I checked the box "Wrap workspaces when the pointer reaches the screen edge" in window manager config ("Advanced" tab), this feature is disabled every time I start a new XFCE session.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Check the box "Wrap workspaces when the pointer reaches the screen edge" in window manager config, "Advanced" tab.
2) Ensure the feature is enabled and works (uncheck and recheck the option if not): moving the pointer to the screen edge switches workspace.
3) Log out.
4) Log in.

Actual Results:
In the new session, the feature doesn't work, as if the box were unchecked. But it is still checked. If I want it re-enabled for the current session, I must uncheck and recheck the box.

Expected Results:
The feature should be enabled for every new session.

Additional Information:
I tested it for a new user (minimal config), the result was the same.
I'm running the xfce 4.6beta3 with debian Lenny.
Since the config window shows the options I want (box checked), and since the file ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfwm4.xml contains the line:
<property name="wrap_workspaces" type="bool" value="true"/>,
I think the config is correctly stored, but xfwm4 (or whichever application is involved) doesn't load it.
