Bug Description

Cairo-Dock uses a plugin to display the information of indicator-application. And we can display the value of IconAccessDesc, but we must wait five minutes until this value get update. The value is lock at "getting ip address" even if the connection is complete.

I'm using Ubuntu Precise and I confirm this bug.

Cairo-Dock uses informations received through DBus (on the bus: com.canonical.indicator.application).
(I checked with d-feet that these informations are the same)

But I also have other problem:
 * if I switch off my wireless card, IconAccessibleDesc propertie is still: "Wireless network connection '...' active: '...' (...%)"
 * if I click on the disconnect entry from this DbusMenu: IconAccessibleDesc propertie is now "Wireless network connection '...' active" (but only after a few time)

I think that this description is only updated when the icon is modified.

Thank you

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Precise Pangolin. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.

Hello Mathieu,

Yes I'm using Ubuntu Precise and I confirm that the tooltip (the value of IconAccessibleDesc's propertie) is only updated when the icon is modified (and then this value can be wrong)

Well, that's very fine but of course it's only updated when the icon is modified, since the icon should always show the current state.

Can you confirm the issue is only reproduceable with the Disconnect functions?

This bug was fixed in the package network-manager-applet -

network-manager-applet ( precise; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/nm-applet-use-indicator.patch: move the tooltip/accessible
    description update to after the tooltip string gets updated; so that we get
    the right string rather than what was just changed. (LP: #944766)
