Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499665
When window focus set to click - <ctrl><alt> grabs pointer even when virt-manager isn't focused
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:35:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Set your window manager highlight preference to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to System->Preferences->Windows
2. De-select "select windows when the mouse moves over them"
3. Start virt-manager and boot a guest
4. click on the desktop, then move the mouse over the virt-manager guest window (but do not click the virt-manager window).
5. Press <ctrl><alt>
Virt-manager grabs mouse pointer
virt-manager should only grab the mouse pointer if the window is selected *and* I press <ctrl><alt>
THis is annoying since <ctrl><alt> is the start of a common key modifier sequence to change desktop workspaces.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I can reproduce with virt-viewer on my f10 box, so moving to gtk-vnc. Not sure if this is intentional behavior or not, but unless there is a good reason I think ctrl-alt shouldn't grab the mouse.
$ rpm -q virt-viewer gtk-vnc
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
