    Re: Precise known bugs with workarounds

    Hi!, Paddy,

    Yes, I did that, and I have just done it again.

    All it does is to change the "Yes, it affects me" into black text on a Red background, on a larger grey ground, and stays there. The number does not change.

    If I click on the other line it changes to "This bug affects 10 people, but not you".

    I am logged in and the righthand text shows: " You are s: subscribed to all notifications for this bug". [ The 's:' is a Pen Icon.]

    " Yes,it affects me " on a Red blackground block. after clicking.


    I wonder If I was already a 'voter', and the bug report system took that into account.

    Chao!, bogan.

    Can we have this thread made sticky again. Some of us are still using the LTS and plan to do so for some time.
    Life's a pitch. And then you sing!

    We usually only sticky the bugs and known workarounds threads for the latest release. If you need to find this thread in the future, you can either bookmark it or subscribe to it from the thread tools menu.

    Re: Precise known bugs with workarounds

    Upon closing Rhythmbox, Unity panel and menu bar become invisible as described in this link: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...2d/+bug/894493

    Workaround :

    Can recover visibility by pressing Super+S to reveal Spread (you see nothing however), and then hitting Escape. Then things return to normal.
