Summary 0000409: Walkback on initial use of graphical menu (?)
Description Using Linux VM.

Drag a teapot morph onto the screen.

Wait for it to start.

Click on open spot; graphical menu comes up

Click on menu item (croquet logo?) in upper right hand corner.

Black square appears.

Move pointer over that square. Or click somewhere.

Get a walkback.

I've attached two different debug logs. In both cases, the walkback is in

TXWindow>>handTrackingPointer:

because tool is nil.

Not a duplicate; no loss of external function was noted.

Right, the button is for launching an X11 window. I suspect it does a foreign-function error on non-linux systems that don't have X on them. I'll have to try it on the Mac here...

If you want it to stop crashing, you can change TXWindow>>handTrackingPointer: to this

^ hands at: pointer ifAbsentPut: [ self makeHand: (pointer tool ifNil: [ #(1 1 1 1) ] ifNotNil: [ pointer tool color ]) ]

But this doesn't seem to make the X window stuff actually work. You do get to click and move a nice little sphere around on the window... ;-)

Is the "attaching a tool to the pointer" stuff all obsolete, or just not quite ready yet?

Ho hum, the conf-call today confirmed that without a specific X-server extension you cannot run this stuff. So I wonder if we should disable it alltogheter?

Or hook it up to the VNC client, which more people would be able to try out.
