Description Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-08-20 12:50:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
It should be possible in a list like the Keyboard or Language selection views,
to press a key on the keyboard and go to the first item in the list that begins
with that letter... Just like the text mode installer. This allows for much
quicker hand installation and is less tormenting for people who wish to do
everything on the keyboard

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start null installation
2.Wait for keyboard selection
3.Press 'D' on the keyboard

Actual Results:  Nothing happens

Expected Results:  The sellection pointer(the bar) should have moved to the
first item starting with a 'D'

Type ctrl-s in the listbox and you should be able to use the built-in
GtkTreeView search capabilities.  Anything more will have to wait for a future

Thank you for the suggestion, but this is not a feature I see us implementing.
