Description of problem:

I do not see any underscored letter in the buttons.
To install without a mouse, one must guess witch alt+? to use.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda live-cd-kde tc5, dvd pretc4-5, dvd tc3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot
2. buttons do not have an underscored / hinted letter indicated the 
correct ALT + LETTER combo.

Actual results:

Every button and checkbox has a keyboard shortcut, and I do installs with a keyboard all the time.  I don't know what component is at fault here, but it is definitely not anaconda.  Are you perhaps installing in virt?  Does it work if you use the regular video driver or perhaps use nomodeset?
Comment 2 Reartes Guillermo 2012-09-01 13:32:13 EDT
I would not say there is a fault or error here, it is just that all the buttons captions i have seen so far are all in UPPERCASE and without any underscored character. So, no visual clue.

> Are you perhaps installing in virt?

Yes, KVM. 
Most of them are with basic graphic video (vesa). or nomodeset.
Either SPICE:QLX or VNC:cirrus or whatever works for that particular compose.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2012-09-01 13:33:11 EDT
Yes, and I'm saying if I hold down Alt, I can see the underscores so I know which keys to press.
Comment 4 Reartes Guillermo 2012-09-01 13:36:11 EDT
ok, i will check that and report later.
Comment 5 Reartes Guillermo 2012-09-02 16:43:53 EDT
I tried with tc5 and it works. 
ALT highlights the correct letter.

So this can be closed as notabug safely.
