Solaris 10 keyboard problem with Java Desktop (Gnome)

 
Hi all,

I trying to use xmanager with Solaris 10 on Sun Blade 100 workstation. Everything works fine with the CDS desktop, however, when I try to login using the Java Desktop which uses Gnome, the keyboard does not work. The mouse actualy works, but if I open a terminal window for example and I start typing, I get cursor fliker and no cursor movement occurs nor do characters appear on the screen. Does anyone have an idea about what is causing this? Thank you in advance.

This is a known problem for Sparc version of Solaris 10. This problem is not isolated to Xmanager but to all X servers. We will post a solution when SUN makes an official announcement. Meanwhile, please use CDE for your work.

Please refer to following forum for more information:

Thank you for your cooperation.
