I have Shift+Alt set as a shortcut for switching my keyboard layout since many Fedora releases.
Recently, I noticed that on pressing Shift+Alt some programs incorrectly grab the Alt key as if Shift was never pressed with it.
So far I found that this happens in:
* Windows programs under Wine
* Gnome Terminal
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox.
2. Press Alt+Shift (starting with Alt).
3. Ensure that the keyboard layout is switched.
The keyboard layout switches but also the focus is moved to the menu bar (in the case of Firefox this means unhiding the menu bar).
The keyboard layout switches and the focus stays where it was before pressing Alt+Shift.
The bug only reproduces when pressing Alt+Shift. Shift+Alt works correctly.
On further investigation, this appears to be a bug in wayland. I switched my desktop to x.org and the problem disappeared.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
