How to reproduce: open Evince,  select a PDF file, go into fullscreen mode, then click into the body of the document.

FS#334: error when decreasing brightness Alec Moskvin Sun, 06 Apr 2014 19:16:15 +0000
If you try to decrease brightness if it's already at 0, it produces errors:

~ # /usr/pandora/scripts/
/usr/pandora/scripts/ line 18: [: : integer expression expected
/usr/pandora/scripts/ line 22: echo: write error: Invalid argument

Not sure how to attach a patch here, but you can get the change with:

git pull git:// bug-333

I also changed the script to use /bin/sh since it's a valid posix script.
FS#332: and scripts fail for some usernames russ Mon, 03 Mar 2014 01:44:35 +0000

these scripts find their config files by grepping /etc/passwd for the uer currently running xfce4-session, but the loose regexp matches too much. this shell fragment from


grep /etc/passwd -e $(ps u -C xfce4-session | tail -n1 | awk '{print $1}')| cut -f 6 -d ":"


when a use called "me" is logged in, returns







rather than just "/home/me"


all instances of that construct (reading and writing settings, in both and should be changed to


grep /etc/passwd -e ^$(ps u -C xfce4-session | tail -n1 | awk '{print $1}'): | cut -f 6 -d ":"


to correctly match only the complete username field in /etc/passwd
FS#331: Hold switch key continuously sends X11 KeyPress events to active application, increasing CPU usage Alec Moskvin Sun, 23 Feb 2014 22:12:35 +0000
To reproduce:

Install xev and open it in the terminal
Put the power key in HOLD mode
Notice the "time" value changing rapidly

In addition to causing more work to X, it also floods the active application with key presses, resulting in increased CPU usage. In my test, switching to HOLD while Firefox is in the foreground causes it to use 6% CPU and X an additional 2.5%.

In addition, the key-press events continue even after the switch is taken off HOLD until another key is pressed.

A possible solution to this is to blacklist the power-button event device, to prevent evdev from listening to it (the key is handled by pndevmapperd).
FS#330: NetworkManager crashes after suspend to RAM Daniel Schaaaf Sat, 08 Feb 2014 12:58:08 +0000
This could be fixed with an update of NetworkManager.
FS#329: Screen turns on when LCD closed David Mon, 12 Aug 2013 04:11:33 +0000
How to reproduce: "Screen blanking" must be enabled! Close the lid, wait more than 10 minutes, tap either shoulder button.  This behaviour happens whether on charge or battery, at the desktop or running an application, provided that the "screen blanking" option is enabled.

Desired outcome: When the Pandora comes out of "screen blanking", it should restore the brightness to the same value that it was before blanking.
FS#328: XFCE desktop icons not displayed when logging on too quickly [including solution!] Daniel Schaaaf Thu, 18 Jul 2013 07:31:32 +0000

A simple workaround is adding the command "xfdesktop --reload" to autostart. Couls this be included in the next SuperZaxxon release or a hotfix?
