Problem with GTK 2.18.3

October 25, 2009 — BarryK
I have got a problem in Karmic Puppy. If I right-click on a file, choose something from the menu, the file-thumbnail becomes highlighted and stays highlighted. I have to click elsewhere in the Rox window to deselect it.

This is a feature of GTK 2.18.3, the version used in Karmic Koala. I confirmed this by compiling GTK 2.18.3 in Puppy 4.3.1, which I'm running right now.

This is very unexpected behaviour, and extremely annoying. I thought it best to post this, as others will encounter it, and you need to know that it is a GTK problem. The thing is, is this behaviour configurable? How?

By the way, I compiled glib 2.22.2, pango 1.26.0 and gtk+ 2.18.3 in Puppy 4.3.1, and I'll make them into PET packages and upload them to ibiblio. I'll also make database entries for them in Woof.

So, 4.4 developers can use these packages if they want, or they may already have compiled these latest packages.
