Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468107
gdm buttons don't work at first
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:21:57 EST
The action buttons (Log In, etc.) on the gdm dialog don't work when the dialog is first displayed.
I think this happens when my mouse pointer starts out in the same position as one of the buttons will be drawn.
In this case, we get half a hover effect (it kind of turns 3D), but it doesn't light up with a blue background. Clicking does nothing.
I have to move the pointer out of the button and then back over it before it will work.
The particular case was actually the Shut Down button, not the Log In button, and the effect is a blue highlight but no border (so I think it's indistinguishable from the correct hover state visually).
An anonymous coward claimed that this bug was fixed in today's release of Ubuntu (http://news.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=1012917&cid=25571255), so it's probably fixed in the Rawhide version of GTK2, just a question of finding the upstream bug and proving that it's fixed.
Yup, should be good to go for F10.
