Description of problem:
The paned (window splitter) widget does not work in an appliction when
run in the KDE 3.2 desktop environment. Attempts to move/slide the
widget to resize child windows fail. If you run the same application
under GNOME, the widget works properly.
This can be demonstrated in any application which uses this widget.
The problem may very well be in KDE and not openmotif, but I can not
verify this. An example of an application which uses this control is
Steltor(Oracle's) Corporate Time. I can also see the problem in the
demo program 'paned' included in the openmotif-2.2.3-4.1.src.rpm package.
KDE version 3.2.2-1 (also tried with KDE 3.3.1)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Fedora for the KDE Desktop environment
2. Compile/Run the 'paned' demo program included with
3. Attempt to drag the handles of the paned widget to resize child
Actual Results: Notice that the widget did not move
Expected Results: The widget should have moved and resized the child
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closed per above message and lack of response. Note that FC2 is not even
supported by Fedora Legacy currently. (Also, openmotif is not shipped currently
due to license issues, IIRC.)
