Arrow keys don't respond in xdvi
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:14:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes, arrows, Home, End and PageUp/Down keys
don't respond in xdvi.
Restarting X restores normal behavior.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE 3.5.1, tetex-3.0-9.FC4, tetex-xdvi-3.0-9.FC4.
Sometimes. I wasn't able to discover a pattern.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. xdvi <filename.dvi>
Window opens, but arrows and PageUp/Down keys don't work.
Keybindings to work.
Additional info: Restarting X restores normal behavior.
Could you present a test case that is reproducible every time? I tried it
several times but either arrow keys and PgUp/PgDn works as expected for me.

No. This is an intermittent problem,
and I wasn't able to discover the cause.
But I have two FC4 computers, and it happens in both.
And now, it also happens in FC5...
Unfortunately without a 100% reproducible case I'm unable to fix it as I can't
reproduce it at all.
This is always the problem with intermitent stuff...
Also applies to hardware, or washing machines.
But I cannot give you more info, sorry.
Ok, closing NOTABUG then. Please reopen when you have 100% reproducible case.
