|0005107||[Squeak] VM||minor||always||09-25-06 22:50||12-17-08 12:01|
|Summary||0005107: With Caps Lock on, Menus do not work (Linux, Mac only)|
Basically, the problem is that Caps-Lock is modifying mouse events, while it
should only modify key-pressed for key=A-Z. It seems minor, but it is very
confusion when user hits it first time - Basically, clicking on menu items just "echos" the menu item, and does nothing. I think I reinstalled fresh image and the VM before I found CapsLock on :(:(
In http://bugs.impara.de/view.php?id=565 [^] , there is a link to a fix Ned Konz provided in Novemer 1994. It seems it was ever applied.
Happens on Linux and (I understand) Mac VM, Windows is OK.
This is a re-enter of now closed issue ID=565.
Linux (I tested there) and apparently Mac. Seems minor but annoying especially for newbies.
for fix suggested by Ned Konz

|APPEARS TO BE ALL OK ON MAC (dang capslock key!) running on 3.8.12beta4U|

Tim, thanks for checking. I do not have a Mac here, but this message
says he has "similar problems" on Mac (vm 3.9-7 which seems newer than yours). They did not get rid of that useless key on mac yet? :)

|In my last note apparently the link is to the top of thread - the comment about Mac vm 3.9-7 is in the email by Yann Monclair (5th from top)|

|So far as I am aware a '3.9-7' vm would be the unix vm running on osx, thus sharing the same code as the more 'usual' unix vms. I am using a mac vm.|

|Thanks for the clarification. i should step into the 21st century and distinguish between a "mac" and "mac osx" (or just "osx"?). So it appears this issue applies only to "linux" and "mac osx" (and potentially other "*ix" VMs.|
(0007639 - 549 - 561 - 561 - 561 - 561 - 561)
Don't forget there are VMs compiled from the *nix code tree that can run on OSX and separate VMs written to the 'carbon' api (I think?) for Macs (OSX or relics of pre-OSX). There is also a version written to the Cocoa api but I don't recall seeing much about it in a while.
I am using the latter, which seems not to have this problem with caps lock. The person having the problem when running a '3.9-7' vm on his mac is running the former. Thus we can suspect that the problem is in the *nix branch of the platform code and not in the Mac branch.
(0007650 - 154 - 154 - 154 - 154 - 154 - 154)
|Thanks for clarifying this; also it occurred to me to ask OLPC if they see the problem; searching, I see conflicting info whether it has caps-lock or not.|
