Description of problem:
When the focus in metacity (Preferences > Window)
is set on "Select windows when the mouse moves over them",
I am unable to rename folders and launchers on the desktop.
When I right-click on a folder and select "Rename...", the
title of the icon is surrrounded with a retangular box and the
pointer changes to the text-editing "I" shape, but no cursor
appears in that box and I am unable to modify the title's
text. All I can do is highlight the text with the mouse
When I change the focus model to `click-to-focus', it
works properly-- after clicking "Rename...", I can enter and
modify the text properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Preferences > Window > "Select windows when the mouse moves
over them" to true.
2. Right-click on a folder and select "Rename..."
3. Click in the text box around the folder title and type text.
Actual Results: The typed text is not recognized, the folder title
Expected Results: The folder title SHOULD change (and DOES under a
different focus model).
With the latest cvs code, this works, unless there is a window under
the icon that the context menu overlaps. Then you need to click in the
rename window to let you edit it. I'm not sure there is a good
solution that avoids this.
in rawhide now.
