How can I navigate partimage without a mouse?

Post by Eugene » Thu Oct 21, 2004 1:58 am

Hi All,

Partimage does not recognize a USB mouse – the only option on my laptop. I can’t figure out how can I select checkbox options – like switching between save/restore on the menus using the keyboard. Please, help anyone.

Firstly Eugene,

Are u sure partimage can use mouse?

From wat i know, after seeing the code, partimage is using newt, and its not kde or gnome. So i think u wont be able to use the mouse.

U can navigate around the partimage using arrow keys, unless ur notebook do not have one. :P
Just kidding

THen to check the check box or radio button, use the spacebar.

For the list is of partitions , use up and down key. If u want to naviage to the next component use the left or right arrow key. ;)
