Description of problem:
Next, Help, Release Notes buttons are gone until you hover mouse over where they should be, then they appear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Regular install not the text-based
2. Begin install of the system
3. Hover mouse where bottom buttons should be (Help, Next, Release Notes)
4. Buttons appear.
5. On the next screen you will have to do the same thing to make them appear each time.
Actual Results: The buttons at the bottom show up each time you hover your mouse over them at each screen.
Expected Results: The buttons should already have appeared or you wouldn't know where to go on the screen.

Are you selecting a different language? What happens if you don't run it
through the KVM? Can you test with rawhide and see if it's still happening?
Still not showing up, even without KVM.
Bug# 152346 has same issue, so its probably software.
I don't know why anyone else seen this, unless they installed in text-mode.
I saw this on FC4t1, and I saw it again on FC4t2.

As Aaron Kurtz states, "I saw this on FC4t1, and I saw it again on FC4t2.
P4, Nvidia GeforceFX 5600XT."
Bryan Headley from #152346, "Seen on via nehemiah and IBM Pentium 2 laptop."
I am wondering if this cannot be reproduced on an AMD machine whether its a
laptop or PC.

FYI - I'm getting this same bug - fc4t2.
Looks like this happens with a CD install or by passing "nopass" as a boot
parameter. I see the buttons disappearing on the Keyboard Configuration screen
but after I have hovered the mouse over them, they stay on all subsequent screens.
Could everyone please confirm they're doing CD installs (or using the nopass
option if doing NFS, HTTP, whatever) and also state between which two screens
the buttons disappear? Also, if they disappear between every screen, that'd be
handy for me to know. Thanks.
Wow a bug in the Bugzilla...
I was doing a CD install.
The situation I documented was between the "choose language" and "choose

The behaviour described in bug #154611 is still there (10.2.0.52).
Switching to text console and back to X also draws the buttons
I'm doing CD install.
I can't explain it, but I believe my recent patch for bug 149688 fixes this
problem. We'll get another anaconda build out in time for test3 to check this.
With this patch the buttons appear immediately, but are always in English.
Re-adding self.ics.getICW().setLanguage() produces translated buttons, but not
immediately drawn (as before).
What about doing
self.window = self.mainxml.get_widget("mainWindow")
in ICW.setLanguage() ?
This produces a little flicker but actually works.
Created attachment 113692 [details]
recreation of complete window
this is a patch with the described changes
Thanks for the patch. Hopefully I can figure out a more permanent fix that
doesn't involve flickering (see comments in the function), but this may have to
do for test3.
