Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 158519
Vino keyboard handling issues
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:07:45 EDT
Several bugs with Vino's keyboard handling code:
Over-eager repeat rate. Whenever you type something which causes a large
part of the screen to change (e.g. adding a newline in the middle of a
screenfull of text), you'd often either get a lot of extra newlines or
Vino would go into an infinite loop adding newlines.
Shift key not working with some keys. Made it impossible to enter '|' or
"Â£" with some very common keyboard layouts.
Caps Lock wouldn't work at all.
Attaching the fixes.

this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
I cannot reproduce 134451 and 140515 with the old packages, but I could
I would like to note that this will make it impossible to put this bug into
VERIFIED since that requires reproduction on old packages and verifying that the
bug is fixed on the new packages. Please stick to one issue per bug.
No change in new packages. 142974 is still broken.
I cannot reproduce these bugs either:
For 140515, note that it says with "some" keys, so it's possible some unusual
keyboard layout would be required. We'd have to ask Mark about that.
142974 was reproduced and verified as fixed. I am leaving this in ON_QA because
I can not reproduce the other two bugs.
