Kile accesses menu without being asked to

  • Nikki

    Hi all,

    New here. I use Kile on Fedora 11, standard package 2.0.3 on KDE 4.

    Everything is running smoothly, except that after a while, editing gets
    interrupted constantly because the menu is accessed.

    If you press alt you can access the menu using arrow keys or certain
    characters. With escape you can get back to editing. In my case, the menu is
    suddenly accessed without me pressing alt. It happens a lot and it is very
    disturbing (I press del to remova a character, Kile sais: there are no files
    selected to delete :S).

    I have had this problem for a while now and it seems to occur when Kile has
    been running for some time. I cannot find any 'secret' key combination to
    enter the menu - it just happens, and yes, I have checked that I don't
    accidentally press alt on either side of my space bar with my sleeves or wrist
    or such. It happens on my laptop as well as on my late desktop computer. It
    happened in Fedora 9 and 11, both KDE4. I am not sure, but it may be related
    to using alt-tab a lot to switch windows (which I do).

    Does anyone have any idea what causes this and what I can do?

    If the answer turns out to be: wait for Kile 2.1 to be released for everyday
    use, when is this expected?

    Many thanks,
