mythfrontend problems: no more keyboard, no window borders
I have to admit that I "touched a running system" again ;-)
My thinkpad runs gentoo linux x86, some unstable packages as well, I
upgraded to Gnome 2.28 a few days ago.
Yes, this could as well got to the mythtv-users-list but I assume the
problem isn't with mythtv ...
When I start mythfrontend it opens but somehow "kills" the display of
the window borders ... the windowmanager seems to be hit somehow.
Alt-Tab doesn't work anymore, the mythfrontend doesn't react to my
keyboard, the mouse moves and selects but doesn't set the focus. When I
click a gnome-term-windows it doesn't come upfront.
ps -ef shows metacity running, I don't see any particular errors in the
usual places (/var/log/messages, Xorg.0.log, etc).
I reemerged xorg-server (1.6), xorg-drivers, rebuilt a fresh xorg.conf,
rebuilt mythtv etc etc
AND: Starting OpenOffice shows similar effects! Window border disappears
I assume this might have to do with qt somehow?
There were quite some qt-related updates as well done ...
I do perfectly understand that using unstable packages *could* lead to
such a situation.
My q is just: Has anyone here seen this as well?
Any hint on what path to follow? Downgrade ... ?
Thanks in advance for any help ... Stefan
