I'm using GNOME the last years and I begin to note that a usability
leaks on the GTK tree control.
I never develop software using GTK+ library, but I guess that the
problem begins with the default behaviour with the keyboard tree control
manipulation. An intuitive mode to program this behaviour is that all
the tree control can be navigated using only the key arrows, I think the
easiest way to understand the control behavior. However, the left and
right arrows do not have any functionality in the tree control. The
functionality of these arrows (open and close tree nodes) is provided by
"+" and "-" keys, something besides being uncomfortable, it cost me to
discover :-( .
What do you think? will be better add this key access to the tree
control default behaviour?
There is a way to myself configure this behaviour without recompile the
I'm sorry if I use the incorrect mail list...
