A couple of changes were made to gtk 2.14 that caused serious usability problems with Gnumeric.
These problems have persisted through at least the last two Fedora releases (10 and 11). They make several operations in Gnumeric unusable.
Please can a newer build of Gnumeric be picked up (either a patched version of 1.8.4, or the development version 1.9.8) and pushed out as an update to F11. It would be a shame if these bugs had to persist throughout the lifetime of F11. Thank you!
This is still a problem in the latest Fedora 12 gnumeric RPMs. Dragging or resizing a chart in Gnumeric is really problematic, and several spinner widgets don't work correctly. Can this please be fixed before the F12 release?
I'm not the gnumeric package maintainer, but I'm fixing now, what the package
maintainer unfortunately has not done so far...
Thank you Robert! You might even want to check on including the 1.9 branch of gnumeric in Fedora if that is possible, it has a lot of other bug fixes and as far as I know it is pretty solid despite not being labeled a stable release. (It's certainly better than the current Fedora gnumeric-1.8.4 "stable" package :) )
I've applied all missing fixes from the gnumeric 1.8 stable branch:
gnumeric-1.8.4-5.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
For gnumeric-1.8.4-5.fc12 see: https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/2601
I just tested these packages, and the graph dragging/resizing problem is not fixed, I think the goffice package probably needs to be updated too?
Looks like the other issue is goffice, but that's not the gnumeric package,
so please open a bug report against the goffice component. I will now close
this bug report as the gnumeric part is done.
gnumeric-1.8.4-5.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
goffice-0.6.6-4.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
gnumeric-1.8.4-5.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
gnumeric-1.8.4-5.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
gnome-chemistry-utils-0.10.8-1.fc10.1, goffice-0.6.6-4.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
goffice-0.6.6-4.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
