Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-07-31 20:39:25 EDT
Description of Problem:

A recompilation of gdm from 'roswell' generates pretty well deserved
compiler complaints.  I believe that attached patch is needed but
it should be reviewed by somebody more familiar with internals.

As an aside - replacing in gui/gdmlogin.c this:
       gnome_dialog_grab_focus (GNOME_DIALOG (dialog), 0);
       gtk_widget_grab_focus (GTK_WINDOW (dialog));
allows to compile this source with older libraries (like those included
in 7.1).  Not sure if entirely correct but so far it works just fine. :-)
Maybe 'configure' could do that by itself?

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2001-08-01 10:10:36 EDT
I believe gnome_dialog_grab_focus() grabs focus on the 0th button of the dialog,
not the dialog itself as with gtk_widget_grab_focus(). Grumble, this function
should NOT have been added to libgnomeui for exactly the reason you mention - it
looks like someone (I know who) snuck it in without a ChangeLog entry.

Patch looks great though. I am moving this bug upstream:
and closing it here.
