Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2003-01-14 01:12:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830 Description of problem: If you are using redhat-config-xfree86 or redhat-config-mouse (probably others too) and have a tree list in some windows, you can't expand expandable nodes without a mouse. One example is: See "Steps to Reproduce" Reproducibility: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Goto "Advanced" tab 2.Click "Configure" button for monitor 3.Click in monitor tree box 4.Navigate to a new root node by pressing down button (i.e. ViewSonic) Actual Results: No keyboard button expands it. Expected Results: Space, right, and enter should expand the tree root nodes. Additional info: <offtopic>I think there should also be a full-text ui version of the config utilities (Bug 78752).</offtopic>
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-01-14 05:06:20 UTC
The Gtk keybindings for TreeViews are "-" to collapse a branch and "+" to expand it. I agree that it's not at all obvious, but that's the way gtk is. There's nothing I can do to change that. You might consider opening a bug against gtk, but they will probably not change the behavior. Closing as 'notabug'. BTW, I agree that there should be a text interface. I will not have time to write one for this release however.

How can I file a bug against GTK?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-02-11 21:42:32 UTC
bugzilla.gnome.org should be the place to file gtk bugs.

Some text to tell the user what keyboard keys they can hit to do expand or colapse menus, switch selection, apply the changes etc, would be helpfull especialy on the configure mouse screen. redhat-config-mouse , If my mouse wasn't working, and I didn't know the keyboard commands, what am I to do?
