gimp File->Create dialogs dont have focus
Last modified: 2013-08-01 13:53:58 EDT
In gimp-2.8.0-1.fc17.x86_64 when choosing File->Create->Logos->Neon (for example), the dialog that pops up doesn't have focus, so you can't simply hit enter to create, or Escape to cancel. This is unlike just about every other dialog.
Same goes for:
File->Create->Buttons, Logos, Patterns, Web Page Themes
and maybe others.
(And, btw, it doesn't matter if gimp is the new single-window mode or not.)
What desktop environment/window manager do you use?
Can you reproduce this issue if you start GIMP from the command line?

The default F17 Gnome desktop (after many years of XFCE)

Great insight there. I can't reproduce this if I start gimp from the cmdline or from the alt-f2 run dialog; it's only reproducible when gimp is run from the gnome shell menu.

Further testing let me reproduce this when attempting this again, i.e. only the first dialog window would be focused properly. Strange.
I've submitted this to upstream: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=688239
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
