5.4.3 possible interconnected bug Sub_title: Xorg, mouse, & Package mgr
Computer is a Dell Dimension B100.
Got 5.4.3, did a full install on a partition of its own.
Boot/shutdown fine (5.2.8 was iffy about that).
For some things, I prefer 800x600. I was doing one of those things when I tried to use Package Manager. Didn't work.
The PM screen came up apparently okay, but clicking the search box accomplished nothing. Didn't even put the cursor there.
Mouse cursor would move for me, but clicking anything didn't work until I clicked the 'close window' X in the top right corner.
Reset the display to 1024x768 and the Package Manager became functional again. Made choices, installed them, etc.
Ran Xorg again to set to 800x600. Everything seemed to work. Tried Package Manager again. Nope. Same problem.
Not a serious issue to me since I can switch video to get the job done.
Just thought it was worth reporting.
