Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 467431
Inkscape unusable because colors have their values limited to 245
Last modified: 2008-10-18 15:41:23 EDT
Description of problem:
It is no longer possible to set colors correctly in Inkscape.
As a result, most colors are unavailable (including the basic ones as white, yellow, etc.) and Inkscape is totally unusable.
This is because the maximum value for any color slider is 245, which is enforced by to GTK+ >= 2.13.
This is well described in:
GTK folks claim this is correct behaviour:
Copied from gnome bugzilla:
------- Comment #1 from Matthias Clasen 2008-09-04 00:47 UTC -------
GTK+ is simply enforcing documented behaviour now. The fix is to set page_size
to 0 when using adjustments for simple scalar values, such as in a slider.
>From the release notes:
* GtkAdjustment now enforces that values are restricted to the
range [lower, upper - page_size]. This has always been the documented
behaviour, and the recommended practice is to set page_size to 0
when using adjustments for simple scalar values, like in a slider
or spin button.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Inkscape
2. Create an object
3. Try to set its color to white (or any color with a value of >245 in any of its components.
Maximum value of all components is 245.
Standard colors are unavailable.
Being able to set values from 0 to 255 included.
Fixed in Ubuntu:
Thanks for the report!
Should be fixed in inkscape-0.46-6.fc10. Please test and let me knows if it fixes the issue for you.
Thank you very much for your _rapid_ response.
