Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-applet


when working in fullscreen (eg. reading a book in evince after "F11"), typing break is not visible / noticeable. It triggers, because when I was back, I saw there were again 58 minutes remaining (were 30 before reading).

I expected: screen mentioning break will appear and stop whole work.
What happened: such screen wasn't seen (but it was probably under evince).

Using indicator-applet version 0.4.7-0ubuntu1, using Ubuntu Natty (11.04).

This behavior is not because of full screen but the typing break treats the system as idle because you are not using either mouse or keyboard. So the timer shows you 58 mins which is very long time.

Thank you for reporting this bug to Ubuntu. 11.04 reached EOL.
