Ticket #11166 (Regression: all mouse buttons detected as RMB) created

Latest Bugs & Tasks - Wed, 2014-08-27 20:31

Might be a fluke in the recent refactorings:

  • in any Tracker window (Desktop included), the left mouse button opens the contextual menu, just like clicking the right mouse button would. So no way to double-click any more e.g.
  • oddly, the "Mouse" preflet is affected too, with regard to the visual feedback: only the digit "2" is ever highlighted; maybe it shares code with Tracker ?
  • apps e.g. WebPositive are not affected: the RMB brings up the menu, the LMB selects text. No problem.

[haiku-development] [PROPOSAL] Externalize Cortex (Augustin Cavalier)

Development mailing list - Wed, 2014-08-27 17:45
Currently, Cortex is an in-tree app [1]. With the advent of package management, there's no real reason for this, and the history of the original Cortex repo [2] was lost on import to Haiku. I propose to move Cortex to HaikuArchives and include it via a default package. I'll preserve history via git-cvsimport and then manually rebasing Haiku's patches on top of this so we get both sets of history in the new Git repo. I've already added a few Haiku developers to HaikuArchives; any others who want admin access I can do that too. ...

That would indeed solve the driver problem, but as it was mentioned earlier drivers aren't the only reason why we should consider using Linux.
