Keyboard Shortcuts

Postby AlanD » Wed Jan 16, 2019 1:20 pm

I wasted a lot of time when setting up to restore an IFW image with a
Linux boot disc.

Problem was there was no mouse control and I did not know all of the
keyboard shortcuts necessary to get around in the Linux setup windows.

One of several issues was the need to back up to a previous window.
Took a while to guess that one.

So, two questions:
1) is there a way to enable mouse control when doing a Linux restore?
2) is there a complete list of keyboard shortcuts available?

GUI version has Mouse support. CUI version doesn't. Highlighted character
is hot key (in box just letter, outside Alt-Letter), enter is also like
next, escape back, tab/back-tab moves from field to field (some keyboards
may not do back-tab), space bar selects checkboxes.

Yes,
there is the issue. I used CUI version instead of GUI.
