Description Martin Simon 2012-07-02 07:15:37 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #834314 +++

Description of problem:
When press the [log] button, gcalctool enters the white space automatically right after "log". If I press the button to write subscript after it, gcalctool automatically removes the space, but when I use the Alt key to do it, gcalctool doesn't remove the the space automatically. This causes the "Malformed expression" error.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press button [log]
2. Hold Alt and press 2 on HW keyboard
3. Release Alt and press e.g. 512
4. Confirm
Actual results:
Malformed expression

Expected results:

The bug is still present in gnome-calculator-3.8.2-1.el7.x86_64
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2014-03-22 03:06:51 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2015-04-30 23:12:16 EDT
Still applies in current releases; I've filed an upstream bug.
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2015-09-03 14:03:34 EDT
realistically, the only chance that we're ever going to fix this is if an upstream fix comes in as part of a rebase.
