Latest libgxim update breaks keyboard input in java swing applications
Last modified: 2009-03-03 09:34:22 EST
Description of problem:
After updating libgxim from libgxim-0.3.1-1.fc10 to libgxim-0.3.2-3.fc10, keyboard input stopped working in swing apps like squirrel-sql, db2 control center and freemind. I can't type any character in the input fields. I've tried jdk version jdk1.5.0_16, jdk1.6.0_12 and J2RE 1.5.0 IBM J9 2.3. After downloading the previous version from koji, and manually reinstall it and reboot, it worked again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Open a swing application like squirrel-sql and try to type anything into an input field.
typed text not seen in the input field
you see what you type in the input field
