Grrr, This bug forces me to go back to jdk1.5 (or to a previous version of fedora, but that is too much work)

It is not possible anymore to choose a directory in a filedialog. A doubleclick on the directory-icon will NOT let you browse that directory but it will start the rename-functionality (As if you doubleclicked the text).

- Start up the demo 'Nodepad'.
- Open a file (the filechooser pops up)
- Select any directory by doubleclicking the directory icon.

Kees.

Nah, it'd get you: "Fedora Core is not a supported platform. Cannot reproduce bug on Windows."

I can reproduce it on my Solaris 10 system, which is a supported platform, and I think it will manifest on any supported Linux platform as well.

Kees, could you please submit the regression through the mustang regression contest form, and mention the bug id I've filed for you, and put a pointer to this thread.
Here's the link to the form:

The contest will be going for another couple of days, so hurry up, you have good chances =)

Thanks,

I narrowed the problem down to metacity.

I've set the option "Select windows when the mouse moves over them". If I set the option then I cannot choose a directory If I set the option to false all works fine.

The option can be reached through the menu

. Can you please try this? Kees.

I tested with KDE. In Gnome with the "Select windows when the mouse moves over them" option selected i see the same problem. It seems to work fine on 32bit b70.

java version "1.6.0-rc"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.6.0-rc-b70)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-rc-b70, mixed mode)

Thanks a lot for narrowing it down! Looks like it's a known bug. It's reproducible on b77 on my Solaris box as well.

But I've checked and it's not reproducible on the latest Swing's team nightly build, so they must've fixed it. I'll try to dig the bug id.

Thanks,
Dmitri

Allright, after much digging I found that this is a regression introduced by AWT changes in b77. It wasn't reproducible on the Swing nightly builds because they didn't have the changes in their workspace yet.

I filed a bug:
6404708: b77 Reg: unable to enter directories in JFileChooser with "Focus Follows Mouse" gnome option

It should be visible on the bug parade in a day or so.

Thanks,
Dmitri

Did it work on FC4 with mustang?
