Description eckman 1999-10-04 23:16:44 UTC
I currently don't have a working mouse(I'm still looking into why it doesn't like my mouse)under the X windows install program (doing an NFS install) and I'm having some problems getting around. I can use the normal keys(arrows, tab, etc) to move around, but I can't figure out a way to get move to gain focus on the "Online Help" frame. Shouldn't there be a "key" which tells people who are mouse-challenged (or just like keyboard short-cuts) how to move around? (F1 doesn't seemed to be mapped to anything yet. :) Also, in order to expand a tree or shrink it, "left arrow" and "right arrow" would make more sense (to me) then "+/-". Why not both? Last issue, in the disk druid window, why does the 'A' in "Add" have an underline if neither <alt-A> or <ctrl-A> select those buttons? Thanks! Eric ps I just noticed a "Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap" error message that `startx` sent to the text console. Could that be causing my problems?

The installer really way not meant to be navigated without a mouse. As a matter of fact, if a mouse is not recognized by the installer, then the install will automatically drop into TUI mode. We will take your suggestions in mind for the next release however.
