V2.1i COREGEN, SOLARIS: Cannot bring up module customization GUI on Solaris 2.6/2.7 Openwin platform when window activation setting is set to "ClickMouse" to activate


Keywords: coregen, solaris

Urgency: standard

General Description:
CORE Generator does not respond to double mouse clicks used
to bring up module customization GUIs (CORE Generator module
parameterization windows) on Solaris 2.6 and 2.7 Openwin platforms.


This problem is observed when the Openwindows window activation
setting is set to "ClickMouse" instead of "Move Pointer" .

To correct the problem, you can either edit the ".OWdefaults" file directly,
or change the window activation setting through the Openwindows GUI.

To change the .OWdefaults file directly, open the file in your home
directory in an editor and change the OpenWindow:SetInput" setting to


To change it using the OpenWindows GUI, click your third mouse
button on a blank section of the OpenWindows screen, and select Utilities ->
Properties from the pop-up menu. (Note: there may be slight variations
from one person's configuration to another, depending on how their
configuration has been customized.)

This should call up a "Workspace Properties" window. Click the third mouse
button again on the "Category" button and select "Miscellaneous", then activate
"Move Pointer" instead of "Click Mouse" for the "Set Active Window" setting.
