kpackagekit software update view doesnt scroll to follow blue bar as moved by arrow keys
Last modified: 2010-10-08 13:19:27 EDT
Description of problem:
view doesnt scroll to follow highlighted blue bar when highlight is moved with arrow keys through the list of available updates.
in the software update part of kpackagekit with more than a window full of update items you can scroll through the list of items with the scroll bar just fine, but when you use arrow keys to move the blue highlight bar through the list the viewport doesnt scroll with the bar as it goes down the list.
if you use arrow keys to move the bar off the sceen, then you can use the mouse to scroll down the list showing that the arrow keys did indeed move the blue bar down the list even though the view didnt scroll along with the blue bar.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open software management (kpackagekit)
2. go to the software updates screen
3. wait for it to automatically look or hit refresh to look for updates
(if there are more than a page full of updates then you have a place to scroll to)
4. use the down arrow to move the blue highlight bar down the list of updates.
5. notice that the blue bar will continue down the list out of view because the view doesnt scroll.
6. use the mouse and scroll bar to scroll the view down to catch up with the blue bar again.
7. repeat for fun and amusement.
arrow keys dont scroll the list of update items
arrow keys should scroll the list of update items so you shouldnt have to use the mouse and scrollbar to scroll down the list.
filed upstream as:
upstream reports that this is fixed in kpackagekit-0.6.1
(which i think was released only a few days ago, but might still be pending)
upstream link paraphrased:
Version Fixed In: 0.6.1
------- Comment #1 From Daniel Nicoletti 2010-08-27 05:53:31 -------
This was already fixed in the new version
i can never find the roadmaps when needed but judging from mirrors 0.6.1 is not planned for adoption any time soon?
can someone link me a roadmap so i know when 0.6.1 might make its way into fedora?
Very soon, work to package up the new version is underway now.
doh, comment#1 is ok but there is a typo in comment#2 above
although the rest of the comment#2 is correct,
the actual external link given in comment#2
should be to kde-bug#249177 (not to kde-bug#249176)
so correct link to the fix notice in comment#2 should be:
please resume your coffee.
regarding comment#3: great, thanks :')
i can confirm that now the viewfinder correctly follows scrolling through list of updates with arrow keys.
tested with both:
kpackagekit-0.6.1-1.fc14 (x86_64) in fc14-kde-beta
bye bye buggie.
