Description Sebastien Bacher 2009-10-29 13:38:41 UTC
The bug has been described on

"Since upgrading to Karmic, the Folder pane of F-Spot View (the tool from F-Spot that opens when you choose to load images in F-Spot from the images' context menu) does not accept mouse clicks - the only way to navigate between images is via the keyboard.


Steps to reproduce:
1. Select a group of images in the Nautilus file browser.
2. Right one of the selected files and select "Open With"->"F-Spot"
3. Once F-Spot View is loaded, if the side-pane is not visible, press F9 to show it.
4. Ensure the side-pane is set to the "Folder" view, rather than "Metadata", via the drop-down at the top of the pane.
5. Attempt to browse images by clicking the thumbnails in the side-pane.

Expected results: Per Ubuntu 9.04, clicking the thumbnails should bring the corresponding image up in the main pane.

Actual results: The thumbnails do not react to clicks."

The issue seems a gdk csw interaction one

extra ubuntu comment

"I just replicated the issue from the command-line:

f-spot --view IMG_*

No clicky. However if I run:

GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true f-spot --view IMG_*"
