Description Jens Petersen 2003-02-21 13:45:05 UTC
Description of problem:
Anaconfa's gui should use Alt-F (not Alt-N) as the shortcut to move forward to
the next screen like firstboot and other gnome apps seem to do.

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. GUI install with anaconda
2. initial setup with firstboot
3. register for rhn
Actual results:
(1) uses Alt-N
(2) and (3) use Alt-F

Expected results:
They should all use the same key for consistency.

There has been some uncertainty about this - the desktop group has repeated told
me they were switching to 'Next', so I havent changed it. Apparently they have
not changed their stuff yet.

For future releases I'll make sure we both use the same thing.

Basically, the HIG says you should use Next but GnomeDruid uses Forward.  Drat
it all :)

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2003-02-23 22:15:43 UTC
Ok - to me the decrepancy between Anaconda and Firstboot is
the most annoying one, how about making those two agree at least?

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-02-24 23:34:21 UTC
It's too late for UI changes at this point but yes, anaconda and firstboot
should do the same thing.  We'll get it next time.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2003-03-14 17:53:01 UTC
It is going to be 'Next'.

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2003-05-25 14:52:59 UTC
I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.

Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2003-05-26 12:38:40 UTC
At least in a Japanese locale firstbook is still using 'F'.

Comment 8 Brent Fox 2003-06-27 21:02:56 UTC
I changed firstboot a few weeks ago to say "Next" and use <Alt>N for the
accelerator.  As soon as the translations are updated, the change will appear in
all langs.  The Japanese translation was updated on June 25. 

Should be fixed in firstboot-1.1.3-1.

Closing as Rawhide.
