Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-applets

geyes_applet are placed on several places on several top & bottom panels on both screens.

When booting, all but one fail with messages "delete" or "not delete", and the "reload" or "not reload"
After selecting "not delete" and "reload" for all, only one geyes_applet appears

This is new behavior in karmic.

When trying to replace the missing geyes_applets on the panels, I get multiple messages "delete" or "not delete", and the "reload" or "not reload". After selecting "not delete" and "reload" for all, the applets do not appear.

Could you describe how to trigger the bug?

geyes are added to the bottom and top panels of screen:0 and screen:1.

Ubuntu is shutdown and then restarted.

After login the messages begin to appear.

After all the messages are dismissed, the added geyes are no longer in the panels.

This is repeatable.

Screenshot of error message during boot, second screen.

Additional information…

This only occurs when geyes are placed on the top and bottom panels of screen:0 and on screen :1.

When placed only on screen:0, it does not happen.

This behavior did not occur in 9.04.
