#9271 closed bug (no change required)

Installer erases keyboard shortcuts?

Reported by: Kev Owned by: korli
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Applications/Installer Version: R1/alpha4.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86


Normally I upgrade Haiku by downloading on my Haiku/BeOS box, booting into BeOS, copying all the files from the new version over top my Haiku partition, and restarting into Haiku. This time I burned a Haiku CD on another computer, booted into it on my Haiku box, ran the installer, and installed over my Haiku partition. All of my keyboard launch shortcuts are now gone. This hasn't happened before. When I read the phrasing of what the installer was going to do, it sounded promising, but I guess maybe it had a blank settings file for keyboard shortcuts rather than no settings file, so rather than leaving my settings it overwrote them with no settings?

  • We can do updates in a more sane way now
  • I can't see anything that would create the shortcut_settings file, maybe you had opened shortcuts preferences and that created it?
