Updated gtk2 packages that fix three bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces.
- Previously, the "Open Files" dialog box failed to show the "Size" column if it was previously used in "Search" mode. This update fixes the bug by ensuring that the "Size" column is always displayed accordingly to the "Show Size Column" context menu option.
- Previously, copying text from selectable labels, such as those displayed in message dialog boxes, using the Ctrl+Insert key combination did not work. This update adds the Ctrl+Insert key combination that copies selected text to clipboard when activated.
- Previously, certain GTK applications, such as virt-viewer, failed to properly initialize key bindings associated with menu items. This was due to a bug in the way properties associated with the menu items were parsed by the library. This update fixes the bug, rendering the menu items accessible again by key bindings for applications that use this feature.
- Previously, the "Open Files" dialog box could appear with an abnormal width when the "file type" filter contained a very long string (as observed with certain image hosting websites), making the dialog unusable. With this update, the dialog box splits the filter string into multiple lines of text, so that the dialog keeps a reasonable width.
All users of gtk2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add this enhancement.
