Natty checkboxes sometimes uncheckable

Asked by Gary Bishop on 2011-05-12

I'm running a fresh Natty install on an Lenovo X200. I often find checkboxes and radio buttons in dialogs (and even in browsers) that are insensitive to mouse operations. For example, if i bring up the Power Preferences dialog by clicking on the battery in the system tray and selecting Preferences, then the Dim Display when idle checkbox is only clickable directly on the box, not on the text. If I move the dialog a few pixels up or down, then it may become clickable. On the "On Batter Power" panel the Dim Display when idle is completely unselectable. Again, moving the dialog a bit up or down makes it work.

I've seen this in Chrome and Firefox as well.

Anyone else seeing something like this?

Are you fully updated?

I just updated and now I cannot make it happen. So updating must have fixed it.

Thanks.

Does it happen with another user?

I can't tell now because it no longer happens after update. In other
words, the update seems to have fixed it.

That's why I always ask if people are fully updated.

Please mark as solved. Glad you got the gold.
