Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 410671
keyboard mouse emulation doesn't survive hibernation
Last modified: 2008-02-20 22:54:50 EST
Description of problem:
When my laptop hibernates, keyboard-based mouse emulation stops working. If I go
to the dialog box and turn it off and back on again, it works again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens in Rawhide, F8, and to my knowledge everything before that. I filed this
under xfwm4 but some other component of X or xfce may be to blame.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Settings -> Mouse Preferences.
2. In the Accessibility tab, check "Enable Mouse Emulation"
3. Enjoy your emulated mouse.
Keyboard control of mouse no longer works. If one goes back to the dialog,
Enable Mouse Emulation is still checked. Unchecking it and re-checking
reactivates the feature.
Should just work.
I will try and duplicate this here and see what I can come up with...
The mouse settings applet is in the xfce-mcs-plugins package, but
it's not clear if it's a setting problem or something deeper.
Do you get any messages in your ~/.xsession-errors file?
Have you had a chance to look at the ~/.xsession-errors file?
Also, 4.4.2 should be out in rawhide now, can you upgrade and see if the problem
Any further news here? I can't duplicate this problem here...
I can't reproduce this.
I am going to go ahead and close this now, but if you still see the issue, and
can provide further info, feel free to re-open it or file a new bug.
Sorry, I missed your previous messages. Nothing relevant in ~/.xsession-errors;
it just doesn't work. I'll leave this closed for now (although, in the future I
suggest WORKSFORME rather than NOTABUG in such cases) and test again once I can
reinstall the system with the final F9.
Sorry, I can dig more if you like... happy to try and track it down.
Or perhaps it would be better filed as a upstream bug (which I can do if you
like, or leave to you.)
If you can file it upstream that'd be great. Thanks.
I can't add you to CC there unless you have an account in the Xfce bugzilla. ;(
Would you like me to reopen this bug and report back when I hear from upstream?
Or just add a comment when upstream needs more info, etc?
I have an account there now -- I'll add myself to the CC list and add further
info as I have it. Thanks.
