Description Luca Bruera 2005-07-04 12:04:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Epiphany/1.4.4

Description of problem:
The version 2.10 of gnome-python-extras does not include a wrapper for the gnome_applet_request_focus method, thus, due to the new focus policies in gnome 2.10, it is not possible to write a python applet including a text entry of a component needing keyboard focus. Old applications need to be ported to this new API, or won't be able to get focus.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run a python applet with a text entry
2.Click on the text entry


Actual Results:  No cursor in the text entry, so it is not possible to input text.

Expected Results:  Cursor to appear in the text entry field, and being able to input text.

Additional info:

A wrapper is available in the unstable release (2.11) of this component.

Patch to add Applet.request_focus

Here's a patch that adds the proper method to 2.10.0.

Comment 4 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-11-17 19:59:07 UTC
Is there any possibility of having this patch added? I require it in order for
the new release of deskbar-applet to work properly.

Comment 5 John (J5) Palmieri 2006-02-01 19:33:40 UTC
Should be in next update

Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2006-02-02 16:28:52 UTC

gnome-python2-extras-2.10.0-6 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
