Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to add a Quicklist to Gufw app, but it isn't working. The code is here (you can install reading the INSTALL file):


I added lines 52-54 to the view (a simple example) from the official API web:



    self.launcher = Unity.LauncherEntry.get_for_desktop_id ("gufw.desktop")
    self.launcher.set_property("progress", 0.42)
    self.launcher.set_property("progress_visible", True)

But nothing happen.

But if I run this file with Gufw running:


$ python test_launcher.py 

The progress bar appears! :/

I don't know what am I missing? :P Any idea? Thanks in advance!

The environment is Ubuntu 13.04.

I think is a bug in Unity, because Gufw is a root app ;) Created bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/1200259 Best regards.
