RFE: Mouse configuration using keyboard is confusing
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
At the mouse configuration screen if you press the down arrow on the
keyboard, rather than moving the highlighted selection down one line it
starts at the top of the list of mouse choices.
GUI or TUI?
Added to list of feature requests.
Please verify this against 7.0 Brock.
reassigning these to firstname.lastname@example.org for further review ...
I have verified this behaviour. On my test machine I have a "3 Button Mouse
(PS/2)' which is correctly detected. After the auto-detection if I press the
down arrow from the keyboard, instead of moving to the next item in the list,
which in this case would be "3 Button Mouse (USB)", the cursor instead moves to
the first item in the list "ALPS Glidepoint (PS/2)".
I will change the severity of this to "Enhancement" and assign it to msf.
I'll agree that this behavior is annoying. However, this is due largely to
GtkCTree's unintelligent focus behavior. This is probably fixable, but I think
that development time could be better spent on bigger issues. We plan on
porting anaconda to GTK 2.0 when it is released. I think that GTK 2.0 will
replace GtkCTree with GtkTreeModel, which will hopefully resolve this issue.
I'm deferring this bug until that time.
Perhaps GTK2 will get us this behavior?
Turns out that GTK2 will not provide this behavior. I think this is too minor
to worry about fixing.
