Description Matthias Clasen 2004-09-02 15:21:20 EDT
The dialog lists Alt, Ctrl, Hyper, Super as modifiers, which is
slightly confusing, since both Hyper and Super are mapped to mod4 in
our default modifier mapping, so selecting either has the same effect.

It would be better to either

*) Remove the Hyper choice from the dialog


*) Map Hyper to a different modifier (mod3 is currently free)
Comment 1 Jonathan Blandford 2004-09-02 17:44:01 EDT
A good fix would be to only show those in the dialog if they're bound:

We can call gdk_keymap_get_entries_for_keycode() to check if either
are there, and show them in those instances.
