Whisker menu highlight doesn't follow mouse pointer

Post by shelleyfrank » Mon Jan 22, 2018 8:21 am

In XFCE desktop, After I upgraded from 18.0 to 18.3 I'm experiencing the following issue in whisker menu:

When the mouse pointer is moved to a category and moved over into the launcher entries field, the highlight gets stuck on the first launcher item the mouse pointer touches, and the pointer moves on without a hover response from the menu. However, when the launcher item directly under the pointer is clicked, weather it is highlighted or not, the item is launched.

The Whisker Menu behaviour setting "Switch category by hovering" is checked. I have downgraded whisker menu from 1.7.3 (which is the current version in 18.3) to 1.6.8, and alternatively upgraded it to 1.7.5 without any change in behaviour.

I am forced to use metacity windows manager, since xfwm4 isn't allowing window box move or resizing. Compiz also works, but the issue with whisker menu is the same under any of the three window managers.

I successfully rolled back to Mind 18 Sarah using Timeshift until further advice can be provided.
