gutsy: at-spi-registryd not starting automatically during gdmlogin

Bug #135903 reported by Francesco Fumanti on 2007-08-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
gdm (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

During the gdmlogin session, at-spi-registryd should be automatically started when Assistive Technology is enabled (I don't know for sure whether it should also be automatically started if Assistive Technology is not enabled.) It does start automatically in Ubuntu 7.04,but it does not start anymore in 7.10.

However, if I define a gesture to start at-spi-registryd in the dwell gesture configuration of gdm, I can start it without a problem. This shows that it is probably not a problem of gdm and at-spi-registryd running simultaneously.

The problem has probably been identified; have a look at this message (and maybe following messages) in the gdm mailing list in gnome:

The problem has been fixed upstream: it was due because gdm looked for at-spi-registryd at a wrong location. Now it is possible to specify the location of the at-spi-registryd via the --with-at-spidir configure argument. You can find more information in this thread on the gnome mailing list:

  * New upstream version:
    - Now support --with-atspi-dir so you can specify a non-default
      directory where the at-spi-registryd daemon exists.
    - Improve keymouselistener a11y gesture listener so it does not
      fail on Ubuntu, and does a better job freeing memory. Fix
      dwellmouselistener a11y gesture listener so it doesn't generate warnings.
    - Fix bug in IPv6 logic. Fixes bug #376010.
    - Fix Macedonian language so the language choice also appears in
      the local language
    - Translation updates
  * debian/
