View Full Version : left click in spoon

04-27-2006, 01:12 PM
When running the latest code, I see that the left-click in Spoon no longer brings up a menu. Any ideas?

I just downloaded the latest source from 4-27 and I'm running it in windows and the right-click bring up a menu, and the left-click lets me select things.

so as far as the clicks go nothing out of the norm.

herphase some more details wouldn't hurt.

Sorry, meant right-click. I'm running on linux.

Rolled back to revision 659 of SpoonGraph.java, and everything works fine. Looks like some of the changes for OSX broke the Linux functionality.

Hi Andrew,

Yesterday on the train to Paris, I updated my System to SuSE10.1RC1 and had no trouble running Kettle there. I patched a couple of smaller cosmetic issues, but the right-click pop-up worked.
I'll try this evening on my older SuSE9.3 box.

BTW, the right click wasn't changed really, but the background colors have changed on Linux. (cosmetics) The OSX change involved a Drag & Drop problem that also happens in Eclipse. This D&D problem seemed to affact some people running on Linux as well.

Please do not hesitate to file bugs for these kind of issues.
Even if later we find that it is a problem with your setup or whatever, at least we have a trace of the problem.

Thanks in advance,

Matt -

I submitted this as a bug. I found the line that is causing the problem and noted it in the report, unfortunately I don't know enough about the GUI code to suggest a fix.
