Description Chris Kloiber 2002-07-26 00:41:25 EDT
When installing Limbo-re0725.1 using

boot: text speakup_synth=dtlk

The speakup screen reader is reading the line below the cursor instead of the
current line only on screens that use newt. To duplicate the problem post
install run setup on a speakup-enabled machine (There's one in my cube) and
select the '8' key on the numberic keypad. That should read the current line,
but has the effect of reading the line below the current one.

Testing has shown that backreving newt to "fixes" this problem.

Has there been any progress on this bug report? The problem is still present in
8.0.  It has been open for over three months...
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2002-10-04 00:47:24 EDT
I've reproduced the problem (thanks Chris for the box), but I have been unable
to track it down.

In this patch, the changes to vertical positioning seem to me to be
obviously correct, but the changes to horizontal positioning are more
opaque and do not seem to directly relate to this bug report.  I'd
like to see a description of why the horizontal positioning changes
are correct, as it is not obvious to me.
Comment 8 Michael K. Johnson 2003-08-19 16:28:53 EDT
Matt Wilson provided analysis.  newt-0.51.5 and later will have this
Comment 9 Dave Habben 2003-10-22 14:04:49 EDT
Is this still an issue? 

This is the version that is currently in rawhide:
$ rpm -q newt

$ rpm -q newt --changelog | head
* Tue Aug 19 2003 Michael K. Johnson <johnsonm@redhat.com> 0.51.6-1

- rebuild

* Tue Aug 19 2003 Michael K. Johnson <johnsonm@redhat.com> 0.51.5-1

- incorporated listbox cursor location patch (#69903)
Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-22 14:43:43 EDT
Yes, this should be fixed now.
