Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241313
setting "highlight the pointer..." in mouse-properties breaks keyboard applet
Last modified: 2015-06-01 21:18:16 EDT
Description of problem:
The cursor-locater assistance functionality interferes with people that use more
than one keyboard (for example, those that use a Dvorak keyboard with there
Qwerty laptop when it's docked)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add keyboard selector applet to panel. Create a U.S. Dvorak keyboard in
addition to main U.S. keyboard. Set to a 104-key keyboard
2. Enable "highlight the pointer..." in gnome-mouse-properties.
3. Switch to Dvorak in gnome-terminal. Attempt to use control-C etc.
Mapping for the control keys follows main keyboard and not chosen keyboard.
Sometimes it follows neither.
Control keys should follow the mapping of the selected keyboard.
It seems that the cursor locater functionality also affects each window's
ability to remember its state (which keyboard its using) as well.
Long-standing known bug:
