keyboard grabs - conflicting shortcuts and modifier grabbing
|Reported by:||psycho_zs||Owned by:||psycho_zs|
I'm experiencing two problems with client shortcuts:
Current Alt+Shift+something shortcuts are in conflict with common keyboard layout switching shortcut Alt+Shift. Perhaps, some unused prefix could be found.
There is no way to enable grabbing and passing through of modifier keys, like Super. This is especially needed in shadow and full-desktop (like with Xephyr) sessions. To pass Super+something to the server host.
The answer to both problems could be Host Key concept. It is used by such software as VirtualBox? or Remmina:
Define a Host key (R_Control by default) which would have special meaning for Xpra client.
Host+something would do some stuff.
Single Host key tap would switch unconditional grabbing of keyboard, including modifier keys, as long as any xpra window has focus.
Single (of doubles) key, like R_Control would not interfere with any of common shortcuts like Alt+Shift, and leave L_Control to act as Control itself.
