Description of problem:
This refers to the warning window that appears when 'automatic partitioning' is
selected. Installation is being done to an older model Sony Vaio PCG-F350
laptop. The automatic partitioning warning indicates that all linux partitions
on the existing drive(s) will be deleted. The user is asked to confirm this
choice. There are two buttons, 'No' and 'Yes'. The 'No' button has the focus.
The problem is that the user cannot use the tab key to toggle the 'Yes' and 'No'
buttons, depending on preference, and then hit 'enter' to make the selection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Limbo on a Sony Vaio PCG-F350 laptop.
2. Select a 'laptop' class installation.
3.Arrive at the window where one makes the first disk partitioning decision.
4.Accept the default option of automatic partitioning.
5. A warning window pops up indicating all Linux partitions on the referenced
drive will be deleted and all data will be lost. There are 2 buttons the user
can click, 'No' or 'Yes'. The focus is set to the 'No' button.
6. Attempt to tab to the 'Yes' button by pressing the tab key.
Actual Results: The window will not accept tabbing to either 'Yes' or 'No'.
Expected Results: The user should be able to tab back and forth between these
buttons, just as with any other button in the installation program.
If a mouse is not connected to the machine, or if there are issues with the
mouse hardware (as seems to be quite the case with older Sony Vaio laptops using
ALPS Glidepoint touchpads), it can be difficult or impossible to continue the
installation at this point if one can't tab to the desired choice in this
Should work now, added a mini-wm to run and set focus.
Verified fixed on my test system.
