Mouse setting "Locate pointer" makes workspace switching with keyboard unreliable
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
If I enable the "Locate pointer" feature in the Mouse settings (Under the
"Cursors" tab) and then try to switch workspace with ctrl-alt-<arrow> it doesn't
work reliably. When i deselect the "Locate pointer" feature switching workspaces
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mouse preferences
2. Select the "Cursors" tab and check the box in the "Locate pointer" section
3. Try to move between workspaces with ctrl-alt-(some arrow key)
When you hold down the ctrl-alt combination and press the wanted arrow-key it
often doesn't react (doesn't switch workspace) the first time. (perhaps 80% of
the time) but need repeated presses on the arrow key in question to "start working"
Correct movement between the different workspaces
This is why all keybindings need to be done in the window manager,
instead of in gnome-settings-daemon...
Anyway, will consider this a control-center bug for now.
I don't know how to fix this in the control-center (short of moving it to
metacity...) Did you have a fix in mind, Havoc?
I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.
This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now. Are you still seeing the problem?
(This a batch message is being sent to all my bugs that haven't changed in a year)
This bug has been in the NEEDINFO state for at least a couple of weeks now. I'm
going to close the bug, but if you can provide the required information feel
free to open a new report.
