Bug Description

When only sidestage is running (over the dash). The user should be able to use the grab handle to dismiss the sidestage. This should refocus the dash on the app lens (equivalent of a long left edge swipe).

tagging as mwcdemo2014 - this seems to be very easu to tumble over in the tablet demo script.

needs an owner/priority bump if its critical for mwc. AFAIK, loicm is not working on sidestage, so there might be better owners.

Are we sure this is a big issue? Bearing in mind this bug didn't have prio for a year now, and the whole side-stage / right-edge behaviour is being revisited?

Alexander Sack (asac) wrote :

I think the reason for this getting prio now is that there is something in the demo script that runs into this issue:

Discussed with saviq in IRC. If we get bug #1281199, we can work around this one without any difficulty:

<Saviq> john-mcaleely, the "can't dismiss side-stage when no main-stage app" issue is somewhat a corner case and I don't see how it's a big issue, could you explain a use case?
* cwayne (<email address hidden>) has joined #phablet
<john-mcaleely> Saviq, ok - just checked with victorp and I agree with you. it ties with LP#1281629
<_mup_> Bug #1281629: Launching sidestage apps from launcher prevents launcher from opening <mwcdemo2014> <unity8 (Ubuntu):New> <https://launchpad.net/bugs/1281629>
<john-mcaleely> so if we fix 1281629, & 1281199
<john-mcaleely> then 1129290 is fine to live with. And I'll get victor to change the spreadsheet
<Saviq> john-mcaleely, yeah, I thought so - once we're able to use the launcher (and so dismiss the app by swiping from left edge), we're good
<Saviq> john-mcaleely, ok thanks

NB, bug #1281629 is a dupe of #1281199
