Description Warren Togami 2003-02-15 11:04:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206 Description of problem: gnome-terminal when used in tabbed mode often will lose keyboard focus when switching back & forth between other windows. This is sometimes difficult to reproduce but it happens quite often for me on several systems. The normally solid black cursor is stuck as the outline-only cursor and clicking the window does not gain focus. WORKAROUND: If you click on the "Go" menu and select "Previous Tab" or "Next Tab" it regains the solid black cursor and keyboard focus. Recent Rawhide versions of gnome-terminal began to exhibit this behavior. I think I didn't experience this problem with the initial gnome-terminal in Phoebe2, but not entirely sure. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.2.1-2

I think the problem is just that clicking the terminal area doesn't focus it, so if you somehow get the focus elsewhere (e.g. clicking the active tab) then you are in a fix.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2003-02-16 19:23:41 UTC
are you switching focus between the windows using the keyboard (Alt+Tab or similar)?
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2003-02-16 19:41:15 UTC
Yeah, Havoc was right. Steps to reproduce: 1. Open gnome-terminal. 2. Hit CTRL-SHIFT-T a few times to open a few tabs. 3. Double-click on any tab.
Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2003-02-20 02:47:29 UTC
how is this a bug? you're focusing the tab. just hit tab to get back in the next group (i.e., the terminal widget).
Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2003-02-20 02:48:46 UTC
IOW, Havoc, why are you allowing tabs to be focused? And you want vte to grab focus when someone clicks on it?
Comment 6 Matt Wilson 2003-02-20 02:51:44 UTC
this is fixed in GNOME CVS - clicking in the VTE widget grabs focus
Comment 7 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-02-20 03:59:05 UTC
The tab can be focused for keynav purposes. Either way, this should be fixed in 0.10.21 and later.
