Getting around the Xinstall program with a non-working mouse
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:38:18 EST
I currently don't have a working mouse(I'm still looking
into why it doesn't like my mouse)under the X windows
install program (doing an NFS install) and I'm having some
problems getting around. I can use the normal keys(arrows,
tab, etc) to move around, but I can't figure out a way to
get move to gain focus on the "Online Help" frame.
Shouldn't there be a "key" which tells people who are
mouse-challenged (or just like keyboard short-cuts) how to
move around? (F1 doesn't seemed to be mapped to anything
Also, in order to expand a tree or shrink it, "left arrow"
and "right arrow" would make more sense (to me) then "+/-".
Why not both?
Last issue, in the disk druid window, why does the 'A' in
"Add" have an underline if neither <alt-A> or <ctrl-A>
select those buttons?
ps I just noticed a "Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back
to pre-XKB keymap" error message that `startx` sent to the
text console. Could that be causing my problems?
The installer really way not meant to be navigated without a mouse.
As a matter of fact, if a mouse is not recognized by the installer,
then the install will automatically drop into TUI mode.
We will take your suggestions in mind for the next release however.
