Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 642358
Up arrow tries to run gnome-screenshot
Last modified: 2014-09-30 19:39:29 EDT
Description of problem:
When using the keyboard to select options (eg. in the autopart dialog) up arrow pops up a dialog saying it cannot run gnome-screenshot. left, right and down arrow keys work correctly.
This has been observed both in a KVM virt, and on a Lenovo x200 laptop.
The Beta-DVD does not do this, it is new in 14.18 on the TC1 netinst.iso image.

anaconda: Disable X server regenerations (#609245)
although I don't really have proof of that since I haven't built an updates image to test.
I tested with F14 just now and the Up arrow no longer causes the PrintScrn action! But why is that?
In any case, I'll make sure the patch makes it to f14-branch. Thanks and bravo Ajax!
The other part of the problem is that our custom values for gconf are not being applied. This causes the printscrn to still be caught by metacity with Ajax's patch, but also the window decoration icons appearing.
the two patches are on the mailing list:
We definitely get rid of the problem with the UP key with the first patch, the second one should also block the PrintScrn key to cause metacity to try to call gnome-screenshot. If this problem still exists after compose with the new anaconda, please attach the pungi log to this bug.
Sounds like this should be in ASSIGNED, and pending patch review may move to MODIFIED

I tested with F14 TC1 DVD x86_64 with updates.img containing anaconda-14.21-1 code. Problem seems to be gone.

I think you mean that the 'key up' error is fixed. On a compose built using 14.21 we also need to test whether 'printscrn' doesn't try to call gnome-screenshot and whether all the other metacity settings are sane (e.g. there's no 'maximize' button on dialogs etc.) If that should fail we need to look into the compose logs.
