#3262 closed defect (notsugar)

Dextrose activities updater doesn't use gconf proxy settings

Reported by: m_anish Owned by: m_anish
Priority: High Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Dextrose Version: Unspecified
Severity: Critical Keywords: dx3
Cc: alsroot, silbe Distribution/OS: Dextrose
Bug Status: New


The microformat updater is reported to be not working through the activities updater on dx3g055.

Both the activity updater and proxy configuration are critical components of dx3 and should be working together.

  • Summary changed from Activities updater is not working through a proxy to Dextrose activities updater doesn't use gconf proxy settings

Related ticket: #2821 "Sugar should directly get proxy settings from gconf"
#2821 applies to Glucose mainline, whereas this ticket is about the Dextrose-specific activity updater.

A workaround for this issue will be in the next Dextrose 3 build, but we need to make sure the proxy UI (#3070) forces a Sugar restart for this to work.

This ticket should stay open as we'll need to fix it the proper way so that changing the proxy settings doesn't require a restart.

  • Priority changed from Immediate to High
  • Severity changed from Blocker to Critical

In newer dextrose-3 builds, the OLPC activity updater is being substituted in place of dextrose one.
