Re: Graphical Installer GTKDFB 2.9 issue

Hello all,

I tried the g-i from [1] and found an possible issue:

try to use the gtkdfb 2.9 g-i without a mouse! It's possible, yes,
but it's not that easy; you can switch with TAB between the buttons
and lists, but you cannot see what button is the active one.

i don't know if it's possible, but maybe marking the active widget with a bolder frame around it would be useful?

In the traditional d-i and in older g-i versions the Next button
is automatically active, so in steps where you want to choose the
default selected value you can just type Enter to get the next step.
This doesn't work in gtkdfb 2.9 versions.

GTKDFB 2.0.9 worked that way and was somehow more user friendly, but i always suspected that was actually a bug. GTKX works like the recent GTKDFB ISO you tested and this should be GTK's correct behaviour. Note that pressing enter doesn't activate the "default" button only when a GTKTreeView widget is displayed (SELECT and MULTISELECT questions), otherwise pressing enter should activate the default button.
I'll see if a workaround can be found for this.

I'm not 100% sure but it seems as if the Screenshot button isn't
selectable with TAB. It's ignored while switching around.

That was meant to be a feature to facilitate installation: when you tab between widgets you usually don't want to tab also over the screenshot button, that's rarely used.
