Bug Description

[Impact]

Unnesessary work for the user as he is forced to clear the note from text in order to delete it. It makes it more difficult that selecting text isn't possible with mouse.

[Test Case]

- Write anything in a note
- Try to select text in a note
- Try to delete it with 'x' or with 'delete notes' menu item

[Proposed Fix]

The fix is a backport of three upstream commits:
- https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-applets/commit/?id=85041d6567c78b4a “sticky-notes: make sure that notes are really saved”
- https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-applets/commit/?id=0c4e0c4fed0c61bf “sticky-notes: fix path to resource file for delete dialog”
- https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-applets/commit/?id=e189ba213c0f8db8
“sticky-notes: fix text selection”

[Regression Potential]

The fix definitely improves the Sticky Notes applet because without ability to save notes that applet is mostly unusable. It does not touch other applets so no regression expected there.

I just made a new upload which fixes one more issue with that applet: text selection did not work. The new test case is added to the description.

Hello Brian,

I'm very grateful for your work, but I can't compile it. Terminal says this after the "./configure" command: bash: ./configure: Engedély megtagadva

It means permission is denied.
I can't figure it out. But I hope one day it will work.

Thank you again,

Roland

Roland, you should not compile it yourself! You should install update from proposed and test it, but... Please wait until new upload / version will be accepted. New upload will also fix text selection. :)
