How to revert slackware-current to 19.Sep.2013 ?


I know the 20.Sep.2013 update broke KDE/Qt keyboard input but I no longer have the earlier snapshot. Is there a way to revert to the 19.Sep.2013 snapshot of slackware-current?

Thanks!

Could it be due to the xinput update? You could try downgrading to the previous version (which is in Slackware 14.0) to see if it makes a difference.

So far, no other reports of this issue have landed here.

You could try my ISO image from Sept 19:

http://slackware.slashusr.com/isos/s...t-20130919.iso
[md5: 0f2198940bbfdd14426f07adf4b28984]

There are others in that directory, too. I also have some even older ones archived I could upload if you really need it. And I have older packages from the distro archived (I use an incremental backup tool for mirroring) if you'd prefer to build your own ISO.

Thank you both! I've downgraded xinput and will report later to see if the problem is solved.

Thanks both again! Now I think this is a problem like "If I buy vanilla icecream the car won't start".

There is something wrong if I start scim automatically when KDE starts by putting scim into "$HOME/.kde/Autostart" as suggested by "/etc/profile.d/scim.sh". Even if I add a delay before the scim command the problem still shows up.

Now I have a fairly effective (though very ugly) workaround -- Do not start scim on KDE start up, but start KDE and then launch a GTK application such as Firefox, Pidgin or whatever. Then the GTK application will bring up scim. After that, all GTK and Qt / KDE applications work well.
