XFCE session chooser not working.


Hello all,
In Zenwalk I have this problem.
I enable session chooser from xfce4-session-manager.

I logout or restart, and when I login the session chooser will come up.

But I cannot create a new session because the keyboard doesn't work.
I cannot give a new name to a new session so I cannot create a new session.

The mouse works so I can start the only session that is there.

This happens on two of my computers a desktop and a laptop, with any kind of keyboards pluged in or not (build-in, usb, bt)

Thanks.

So what you're saying is that your keyboard doesn't work, period?
It doesn't have anything to do with the session chooser?

The keyboard doesn't work in the session chooser dialog and the new session name child dialog from the session chooser.

After I choose the session, using the mouse, and after all the programs have started the keyboard works just fine.

So I think that there is a problem with the chooser putting the x11 in some state that ignores keyboard input.
