Description ken_laird 2001-07-25 22:46:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2smp i686)

Description of problem:
I have noticed that the menus in xterm which are supposed to popup when
<CTRL> is held down and one of the mouse buttons is pressed do not work on
machines that have been upgraded from Redhat 6.2 or 7.0 to Redhat 7.1. 
They do work on machines that have been installed directly to Redhat 7.1.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install Redhat 6.2 or 7.0 on a box.
2.  Using the Redhat 7.1 boot disk and CD media, upgrade to 7.1.
3. Start xterm from a terminal window.
4.  Press <CTRL><Mouse button 1> (or 2 or 3) with the cursor in the xterm


Actual Results:  The menus that should pop up do not.

	I think I may have found the answer to this.  Examining the packages the
upgrade installed on the machines where the xterm menus do not popup with a
machine that I upgraded using the 
kickstart method, I found that qt-Xt-2.3.0-3 did not get installed on the
machines with the problem.
After installing that package on one of them, logging out and back in, xterm
worked properly.  I have installed that package on the other machine with the
problem and am waiting for the user to logout and back on to verify that it

I just confirmed that the menu's do work, at least in our rawhide
XFree86 4.1.0, so if it doesn't work in 4.0.3, it is at least fixed in

Just realized my other box has 4.0.3 on it, and checked and it works
there too...
