Description Jeremy Bicha 2013-04-05 00:19:14 UTC
Ubuntu GNOME 13.04 with GNOME Shell

According to the 'Open Clocks' menu item in the clock menu in the top bar is only supposed to show if gnome-clocks is installed. However it always shops up.

(Personally, I'm hesitant to install gnome-clocks by default in Ubuntu GNOME until bug 689082 is fixed.)

The Clocks menu item, does get hidden after the 'installed-changed' signal fires.

Perhaps AppSystem is just not ready when dateMenu first loads?

We see the same problem on Gentoo: button is shown even when gnome-clocks is not installed
Comment 3 Colin Walters 2013-04-27 15:13:08 UTC
For what it's worth I just decided to make gnome-clocks mandatory.
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos 2013-05-09 19:54:22 UTC
Do you have any idea about why is currently failing to drop the entry when it's not available? Workarounding it making the dependency a hard requirement looks overkill to me :/

I'm no longer able to duplicate this bug with gnome-shell 3.8.2 and gnome-clocks not installed. I'm going to mark this a duplicate of bug 697725 which I think fixed this issue.
