gcalctool ignores Degrees/Gradians/Radians radio buttons, assumes radians
Last modified: 2009-07-18 11:54:22 EDT
Description of problem:
The gcalctool in Fedora 10 ignores the Degrees/Gradians/Radians radio buttons and returns a result to trigonometric functions assuming that the input/output values are radians.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

2. Change to scientific mode
3. Select Degrees radio button
4. Press Sin

This worked in the F9 version of gcalctool. Also, I don't see gcalctool listed in the package list above, so I selected gcalculator.
Of course, that should be

You did not look carefully enough. :)
Ok, sorry about that.
I have a second computer with F10 x86_64 and gcalctool. I tried it out this morning, and on this one gcalctool is "stuck" in degrees mode. So maybe the bug is that the mode cannot be changed, not that it sticks specifically to radians.
I was unable to reproduce this problem with gcalctool-5.26.2-1.fc11.i586.
If you are still running Fedora 10, you should be able to update to gcalctool-5.24.3-1.fc10. Do you still experience the problem with that version?
If so: if you move ~/.gconf/apps/gcalctool/%gconf.xml aside and then start gcalctool, does that help?
The problem is gone with the latest version of gcalctool. Thanks.
