Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 494305
releasing pointer grab gives focus problems
Last modified: 2009-04-21 19:17:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When I press Ctrl-Alt to release the pointer from a virtual console
I am unstable to get proper focus on the host desktop focus without
bringing the pointer over the console window again and right clicking
on the host desktop to bring up the host desktop menu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter console and click to have pointer grabbed
2. press Ctrl-Alt
3. try to right click on host desktop
3. desktop menu should appear
A workaround is to take the pointer in and out the console window
again: then it is possible to bring up the desktop menu with button3.
This used to work in earlier releases.
(Oops, taking off F11Target list since I don't know if this happens
with newer version in rawhide. If someone could confirm that it
would be good.)
What GTK-VNC version do you have ?
Can you confirm whether the problem from comment #1 still occurs with this latest gtk-vnc-0.3.8-4.fc10. When the bug was reported, this version was not yet pushed to F10 updates stable. The 0.3.8-4.fc10 build has a fix for pretty much exactly the scenario you describe in the initial report, so I'm surprised if this is still a problem
Ok I think you're right and this seems to be fixed now. It might have happened that I had updated and not restarted v-m or something earlier.
I'll close this out and re-/open if I should see any problem later. Thanks.
