Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106680
Activation of a pushbutton in a popup menu using only button 3 is not possible.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:58:16 EDT
Description of problem:
If I run my Sparc Solaris application (Motif 2.1) with the display set to my RH9
box (running any WM) I am not able to access the popup menues. I have to hold
down button 3 (the popup menu appears), move to the desired pushbutton and press
button 1 to get the desired effect. On Solaris I can just push button 3, move
and release button 3 to XmNactivateCallback.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@garvin root]# rpm -q openmotif
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Netscape 4.x on a solaris machine with display directed to the RH9 box.
2. Load a page.
3. Press button 3 inside the rendered page.
4. Select "View Page Info" (or whatever)
5. Release button 3.
"Page Info" window should pop up.
This actually does not happen when I run Netscape from a RH7.3 machine and
remote display to the same RH9 machine as above. Running Netscape (or my own
application) remotely on a Sun box and remote display on a Sun box gives correct
This could very well be related to something entirely different than Motif on
the server (since it is basically a client library), but I'm not entirely sure
that I understand the X11 protocol and I had to put it somewhere.
This is no openmotif bug.
At the time it appeard to be. However, further investigation has led
me to believe there is a incompatability between XFree86 and X11R6. I
haven't been able to trace yet, but reopening it might help others
and remind me that it's still there when I get the time to do it
What is described in the bug report is just an application problem
and some guesses as to what is at fault. If you believe this is
an XFree86 bug, please file it in XFree86.org's bugzilla at
http://bugs.xfree86.org with indications of what the bug is, and
then paste the upstream bug URL here and we will review the upstream
bug report resolution.
I see nothing in this report indicating this is an XFree86 bug at
this point, just a tech support problem.
Closing as "NOTABUG"
