Bug in adwaita-gtk2-theme results in checkbox in firstboot being incorrectly rendered
Last modified: 2013-04-30 18:56:02 EDT
Per https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=856194#c32 , a bug we were struggling with in firstboot - where it tries to draw a checkbox as 'greyed out but checked', but it shows as 'greyed out and unchecked' - turns out to be a bug in adwaita-gtk2-theme, fixed by upstream http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-themes-standard/commit/?id=f9b39e206a25da630506aa160d6a66d236b07616 . Filing this bug so we can track getting the fix in F18 Beta. I don't think it's quite a blocker bug, as firstboot actually *behaves* correctly, but it's clearly confusing to the user so I'm nominating it as NTH. Cosimo, if you could get the update done ASAP that'd be great, thanks!
Adam, a version of gnome-themes-standard with the fix for this included has been built already and is sumbitted as part of this update
Cosimo, using just the update ID in URL is enough:
I'll try to re-test once it is pushed to testing.
kalev should be able to edit the update and mark it as fixing the bug, or we can just handle it manually. Setting ON_QA to reflect the fact that it's in updates-testing.
Anaconda made root password mandatory, that means firstboot is no longer affected by this bug (it won't display checked and greyed out checkbox now). The update is in stable. I'm closing this.
"Anaconda made root password mandatory, that means firstboot is no longer affected by this bug (it won't display checked and greyed out checkbox now)"
That's not correct. It made the root password *spoke* mandatory. If you enter the spoke and leave it without typing anything, you get the 'locked root account' configuration.
This is terrible UI, but hey.
confirming the checkbox issue is fixed in tc6.

Ah, thanks. I completely forgot about that.
