#297 closed defect (fixed)

Index finger (Browse link) pointer's active point is too low

Reported by: FGrose Owned by: erikos
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: 0.84.x
Severity: Critical Keywords: Browse Cursor
Cc: sdz, erikos, benzea, alsroot Distribution/OS: Ubuntu
Bug Status: Assigned

Description

The index finger pointer has an active point that is at the 2nd and 3rd-finger-knuckle height instead of the extreme fingertip.

(Observed on Soas-200902022242.iso with a 1280x1024 display.)

For closely-separated text lines with links, the fingertip can be over my desired link, but the lower link will be activated.

The upper edge of the standard pointer holds the active point, so as the pointer image changes, the shift in active point is confusing, and frustrating smooth navigation over the link field.

  • Bug Status changed from Unconfimed to New
  • Component changed from sugar to SoaS

Walter reports no problem in XO builds or jhbuild on Ubuntu. So may be specific to SoaS builds where it is present at various resolutions in VirtualBox as well.

Reproduce:

  • Use Browse
  • hover slowly over a link until the cursor changes
  • the pointing finger should be at the position you were hovering - but it is already over half of the link

Benzea - any idea?

Hm, the hotspot/active point is in the wrong location, but it does seem like it is correct in sugar-artwork.
Maybe some mozilla weirdness?

<benzea> erikos: I have not tested it live, but the hot points it spits out don't have the same x/y coordinate for every cursor now ;-)
