Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal with ppa:unity-team/staging

Issue:- Right click using mouse on dash icon in keynav mode fails to exit keynav mode and does not activate the option chosen by the user. Only if the user clicks anywhere on the screen, the chosen option gets activated.

For example:- In keynav mode, right click on dash and click on "Applications". This will not exit keynav mode and will not open applications lens. Only when the user click somewhere on the screen, keynav mode exits and applications lens is opened.

Action:
- Press Alt+F1 to enter keynav mode
- now right click on dash icon, click on any options in the quicklist

Week 40 - Same issue observed on Ubuntu 12.10 with ppa:unity-team/ppa

Test case ID - CAN 27 - UNITY_ Test Alt+F1 NavMode Quicklist Click Exit

Issue 1:- When in keynav mode, right click using mouse on dash icon and clicking any of the options in the quicklist shown fails to exit keynav mode and does not activate the option chosen by the user. Only when the user clicks anywhere on the screen, the chosen option gets activated.

Additional info- When in keynav mode, use the arrows to highlight any other icon apart from dash. Now right click and choose any option apart from "unlock from launcher" in the quicklist, this works fine. It fails to work only with dash as explained in issue 1 above.

Issue 2:- Right click on "unlock from launcher" option in the quicklist, fails to exit the keynav mode. Instead keynav mode shifts to the icon which takes the place of the unlocked launcher icon.

Issue 1:- When in keynav mode, right click using mouse on dash icon and clicking any of the options in the quicklist shown fails to exit keynav mode and does not activate the option chosen by the user. Only when the user clicks anywhere on the screen, the chosen option gets activated.
Additional info:- Issue 1 steps when tested with other launcher icons apart from dash, it works ok except with "unlock from launcher" option as explained in issue 2.

Issue 2:- Right click on "unlock from launcher" option in the quicklist, fails to exit the keynav mode. Instead keynav mode shifts to the icon which takes the place of the unlocked launcher icon.

This actually only happens now when right clicking the BFB icon. All other icons work. This is due to the keynav having a grab and the Dash not showing due to the grab not being let go.

summary: - Week 38 - keynav mode quicklist exit fails to work when mouse is used to
- right click and choose an option
+ BFB Quicklist fails to work when mouse is used to right click and choose
+ an option when Launcher is keynav mode

This bug was fixed in the package unity - 7.3.2+15.10.20150512-0ubuntu1

---------------
unity (7.3.2+15.10.20150512-0ubuntu1) wily; urgency=medium

  [ Chris Townsend ]
  * Add new signal to tell the Launcher to terminate keynav mode and use
    that signal when a BFB quicklist item is chosen. (LP: #1052024,
    #1444643)
  * Add option to enable and disable Unity low graphics mode on the fly
    in ccsm or via gsettings. (LP: #1412937)
  * Remove code that is no longer needed and broke opening application
    spread while in Launcher keynav mode. (LP: #1445082)
  * Save the active window when showing the Dash so the correct window
    is focused when hiding the Dash. Fixes issue when "Always on Top"
    windows are present. (LP: #1446634)
  * Save the active window when showing the Hud so the correct window is
    focused when hiding the Hud. Fixes issue when "Always on Top"
    windows are present. (LP: #1366583)
  * Send signal to ensure the Dash will show when entering keynav mode
    since the first icon always highlighted is the BFB. (LP: #1444113)
  * When looking for the top-most valid window in a VP, also check if
    the window is focused if the window is set to Always on Top. This
    allows Launcher icon spread to work properly when a window is
    minimized an Always on Top exists in the group. (LP: #1131385)
  * When using the left arrow to exit a Quicklist, Launcher keynav is
    implied and should be active regardless of how the Quicklist was
    opened. (LP: #1444626)

  [ Eleni Maria Stea ]
  * The skydome rendering of the cube plugin was wrong with unity
    because transformation matrices set by the unityshell plugin were
    left in the opengl matrix stacks affecting other compiz plugins.
    Saving the compiz state at the beginning of the unityshell plugin
    rendering functions and restoring it at the end of them fixes the
    problem. (LP: #1446165)
