Description John Poelstra 2013-06-24 22:16:18 EDT
Description of problem:

left and right arrow keys do not move user between tabs--no way to reach "tunables" tab, thus making this program worthless for increasing battery life.

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

powertop-2.3-1.fc19.x86_64

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run powertop
2. attempt to move between tabs with arrow keys

Another data point.. installing an older version from Fedora 18 exhibits the same behavior on Fedora 19

http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/releases/18/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/p/powertop-2.2-3.fc18.x86_64.rpm
Comment 2 John Poelstra 2013-06-25 00:31:00 EDT
I can confirm that powertop-2.1-2.fc17.x86_64.rpm DOES work correctly on Fedora 19 in that the tabs are accessible with the arrow keys.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Škarvada 2013-06-25 05:04:40 EDT
This is by design. Arrow keys allow you to scroll up and down through the screen. For switching through the tabs use Tab and Shift + Tab.

Where "by design" == "change in UX behavior from previous versions" :)
