Re: GNOME Panel++

Hi Vincent:

Thanks for asking!  We generally try to make sure bugs are filed so
there are no surprises.  I did a quick bugzilla search and came across
the following.  Some are gnome-applets related, but I think there might
be some opportunity in gnome-panel to help them. - Notification Area
needs keynav.  This is a long standing bug which has been the source of
much frustration for keyboard only users.  The underlying cause has
since been pushed to GTK+, but it gives an example of the kinds of
things to look for. - Keyboard navigation
in applications menu.  I'm not sure I completely agree with this one. - Mixer applet breaks
keyboard navigation. - Launcher properties
provides no way of specifying a keyboard shortcut. - No keyboard-shortcut
for Drawer on gnome-panel. - keyboard bindings
(related to Stickynotes). - Keyboard accelerators
are incoherent (comment from a heavy keyboard user)

As a general rule of thumb for tracking down keyboard navigation
problems, unplug your mouse and see if you can still access the features
of your application efficiently.
