Re: home plugin issue with drag events

Hi Bob,
Thanks for the info. I don't think this is where the trouble lies though as I was seeing the same problem running in Xephry on my desktop (no touchscreen involved). Another problem I'm having is the home plugin no longer seems to be receiving mouse scroll wheel events, even after changing the CLICK_TIMEOUT. Any ideas on this?

FYI: we changed the touchscreen configuration settings in xorg in regard
to click and double-click timing.  This may have had an impact on you
that we didn't predict.  This change took place in Nov:

I figured out the problem. Motion events are being propagated, but
only after clicking and holding for ~1 second, then dragging.
Otherwise the gesture is being interpreted as a move event for the
window. Lowering the value of CLICK_TIMEOUT gets the behavior back to
what it was before the merge.

I'm working on the Ubuntu Mobile project and we are currently
developing based on  version 1:0.0.43-1 of hildon-desktop which was
merged a couple of months ago from previous version 1:0.0.21-1 (see Since the merge, I'm
seeing a new problem where our home plugin is not receiving drag
events that occur within it's container anymore, which is causing
some problems. I've been looking at the the many changes made to
libhildondesktop/hildon-desktop-home-item.c with regard to event
propagation and motion, but can't seem to pinpoint the problem
(assuming the problem lies somewhere here). I've also merged the
latest changes you guys have made to this file (enabling the
extension events) but this does not seem to help.

Is there something new I need to do in the home plugin in order to
get these events or a specific place I might look? The home plugin
we are using adds a gtk_mozembed() to the home plugin container and
loads a Flash movie in the gtk_mozembed() and the drag events are
not reaching the Flash movie anymore. Any suggestions would be much
appreciated. Thanks
