Shift key not working with some specific keys

Reported by: Punx120 Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.4
Component: core Version: 0.3.2
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Hello,

The shift key is not working with a subset of key. For example if I press shift + i, i have a lower i, not an upper i.

Keys affected are : e,r,i,d,f,g,h,j,k,l,c,v.

I would suspect a conflict with some specific command. I have the problem with java based application (matlab) and gtk (gedit).

I'm running xpra 0.3.3.

Thanks
Sylvain

Please add details, like:

  • distro
  • xorg package versions
  • xmodmap -pke
  • setxkbmap -query
  • setxkbmap -print
  • any keyboard related configuration info

etc ...
So I can reproduce the exact same setup.

Does this also happen with 0.3.2 or is this a regression?

I suspect #109 and r942 may have caused this...

It seems like a regression, 0.3.2 works.

$ setxkbmap -query
Error!   Option "-query" not recognized
$ setxkbmap -print
xkb_keymap {
        xkb_keycodes  { include "evdev+aliases(qwerty)" };
        xkb_types     { include "complete"      };
        xkb_compat    { include "complete"      };
        xkb_symbols   { include "pc+us+inet(evdev)"     };
        xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc105)"     };
};

Nothing is specific on my keyboard.

I have the same problem with xpra 0.3.3, when connecting from a windows client. If attaching on the same machine (client == server, Ubuntu Lucid) everything works.

comment:5 Changed 9 years ago by rikky

Just like to add that other key modifiers (ctrl, alt) are also not working with these keys.

Downgrading to xpra 0.3.2 fixes these issues for me.

comment:6 Changed 9 years ago by Antoine Martin

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I believe this is fixed in both 0.3.4 and 0.4.0

Feel free to re-open if not.

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by Punx120

I confirm that this is working with 0.4.0.

Thank you
Sylvain
