GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 345117
dictionary applet does not accept focus
Last modified: 2006-07-20 23:23:13 UTC
Please describe the problem:
Clicking in the dictionary applet's definition window does not give it focus. So keyboard navigation (arrowkeys), the "quit" key ESC, etc, etc, cannot be used.
In fact the only way to close the window seems to be to click on the dictionary icon.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Enter a word ("dictionary") to lookup in the panel applet.
2. click on some other window
3. try clicking in the definition window of the applet
focus cannot be regained. I can highlight text and can scroll with the mouse, but keyboard strokes go to whatever application previously had the focus.
Does this happen every time?
fixed in HEAD, will release 2.15.5 on monday.
