Description Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2001-05-29 20:25:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4 i686; en-US; 0.8.1) Gecko/20010421

Description of problem:
The drop-down lists in the package selection cannot be opened with keyboard
navigation.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.select "customize packages"
2.try to open a list with keyboard alone

Actual Results:  You can navigate with tab and arrow keys, but space/enter
do nothing with the closed lists.

Expected Results:  It should be possible to open the sub-lists with the
keyboard alone.

Additional info:

Using text mode is a perfectly good workaround.

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-05-29 21:18:53 UTC
In GtkTrees, the "+" and "-" keys are the default for expanding and collapsing
tree branches.  Try this and I think it will work just fine.  Thanks for your
report.
