Description Michael Lee Yohe 2003-08-21 18:26:44 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686) Gecko/20030722 Galeon/1.3.7

Description of problem:
Prior to upgrading to pre-release Gnome 2.4 packages, I had "ALT+R" bound so
that Gnome would produce the Run dialog box.  Upon upgrading, I found that ALT+R
does nothing except emit a beep.  I have changed the shortcut to multiple
different combinations/keys (F4, META+R, etc.) - all of which are ignored.

If I switch to a terminal and press the shortcut, I should not see the
characters appear in the terminal.  Instead, Gnome allows the keys to go through
as if they were not properly captured.

See additional information for a list of packages (and revisions).  I noticed
that "gnome-keybinding-properties" applet is contained within the control-center
package which has a version of "2.2.2" (supporting the Gnome 2.2 desktop).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to pre-Gnome 2.4 packages from Rawhide.
2. Go to Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts
3. Assign a key combination to open the "Run" dialog box.
4. Close Shortcuts preferences dialog box and enter your combination.

Actual Results:  Combination is ignored, and the dialog box does not pop up.

Expected Results:  Combination is recognized by Gnome magic, and the Run dialog
box should appear.

Another oddity...

Just browsing the bugs and found Bug 102801 where Tim Waugh references opening
the Run dialog box with ALT+F2.  Out of curiosity, I type in ALT+F2, and voila -
the Run dialog box appears.

Now, why can't it be rebound to something else (especially since the applet says
it's bound to something else)... there lies the mystery.

Upgrading control-center-2.3.5-1 fixed the problem.
