|0004363||Scribus||Story Editor / Text Frames||public||2006-10-05 01:17||2006-10-12 09:39|
|Platform||Pentium D||OS||Ubuntu||OS Version||6.?|
|Summary||0004363: Can't enter text|
The only key that works when entering text in a textfield is the spacebar. Nothing else works.
Running an Apple keyboard through a USB KVM switch.
|Steps To Reproduce||Start a new document, make a textfield and attempt to enter text - no go. The story editor has the same problem.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
That's ... extremely odd. Have you tried without the KVM? Do any other apps have problems? Have you tried any other Qt based apps? Does qtconfig accept keyboard input ok?
Can you navigate the Scribus menus by "alt" key, arrow keys, and letter accelerator keys, or type into the number fields in the properties palette?
What's the console output from running "xev" and type some things over the xev window, including space but also other characters? (if xev isn't installed it should be in xbase-clients).
Does Scribus produce any output when run from an xterm while you try to type into a frame?
What version of Scribus are you using? (we have that field there for a reason!). How did you get it - from debian.scribus.net, from another 3rd party repository, from Ubuntu universe, compiled a snapshot, built CVS, or compiled a release version?
(Flagging ->minor (that really means "normal severity", the name is dumb) as there's no data loss and the issue isn't widespread. In a sense every bug is major, we have to draw the line somewhere.)
I have the exact same problem.
Scribus 184.108.40.206 on Ubuntu Edgy (scribus package 220.127.116.11.dfsg-1)
I run GNOME and (generally) have as few as possible KDE libraries installed.
I'm running on an amd64 architecture.
No KVM here, just the keyboard.
And the menus work fine, I can navigate using the keyboard.
Properties dialogs also accept numbers just fine.
The only output when run from an xterm is "Font /var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/Racotf04.ttf is broken, discarding it"
I just ran installed and ran Scribus 18.104.22.168 in my Ubuntu Dapper i386 chroot (scribus package 22.214.171.124.dfsg-1) and there is no keyboard issue.
Since this is the same build (same package probably) running on the same hardware, I would have to conclude that it probably isn't a Scribus problem.
|This is clearly a Ubuntu Dapper issue. A default install of Scribus on a new Dapper install is broken in a few ways. Poor default choices, Qt issues, error messages in the console and more...|
