Mate-keyboard-properties - accessibility of "add layout"




When using mate-keyboard-properties to add a new keyboard layout, it seems that the dropdown boxes (i.e. for “Country:”) have no “type-ahead support”. So, to select, Lithuania, for example, I’m forced to scroll all the way down until I find it - I think it would be great if I could just type L (and i) to jump to the first language in the list that begins with those letters (whether the dropdown is open or not) - this is the way I’m used to these UI elements working on Windows, for comparison, and it saves a lot of time.

Hopefully this is the right place to make such a suggestion. Perhaps someone could point me to the implementation code; maybe I could even take a look at adding said functionality myself and contributing to this fine desktop environment.

Thanks for your time,



is the problem perhaps related to the combo box not being allowed to receive the (keyboard) focus?:
