Ticket #7661 (new defect)
mouse selection wonkiness in Joyride
|Reported by:||Rmyers||Owned by:||bernie|
|Priority:||normal||Milestone:||8.2.0 (was Update.2)|
|Component:||x window system||Version:||Development build as of this date|
|Action Needed:||never set||Verified:||no|
|Deployments affected:||Blocked By:|
I installed tkinter on a Joyride 2137 machine so that I could run IDLE.
On opening IDLE, a trackpad movement and click doesn't move the insertion point, nor does click and drag select text. Moving the insertion point with the arrow keys and selecting text by shift/moving works. Right click works, bringing up a 'go to' tool tip.
So left click seem to be getting lost. This would seem to be a symptom of some underlying wonkiness. I suspect that this same behavior would occur in other X applications.
This works properly in 708.
Notes to help duplicate my situation:
To install tkinter (needed for IDLE):
su yum install tkinter exit
To run IDLE:
cd /usr/lib/python2.5/idlelib python idle.py
