Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441039
GDM allows keyboard usage only the first time you try to login
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:48 EST
Description of problem:
The first time gdm start you can write the user name in order to login. If you
do a mistake (username wrong, password error etc) the second time you can no
longer type the username - no 'search' field appears when you type so you have
to use the mouse and click it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.First time on gdm screen press a key and the 'search' field comes up so you
can type the username
2.Do a mistake so that you fail authentication
3.second time on gdm screen press a key
There is no 'search' field so you have to use the mouse to choose a user
The 'search' field should appear again
I wasn't sure if this is usability or bug at first but now I'm sure it is a bug
since the first time you get the 'search' field but the second no.
I believe this focus issue has been fixed in the meantime.
Please reopen if you are still seeing it with current rawhide.
