Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190747
Win modifier key doesn't always work as a modifier
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: fairly random
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in graphically (I'm using KDE)
2. Use a key combination including the Win key (e.g. Win+L)
3. If it doesn't reproduce, log out and go to step 1 until it does
In the attached xev log, I did the following (and separated each out with extra
- Win (left)
As you can see, the Win key is not changing the modifier state -- it's still
0x10. It should be 0x50. The Alt key works correctly, changing the state to 0x18.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER", awaiting X.Org bug URL
External Bugzilla reference was added some time ago...
Steve, as the reporter, you are (apparently) the only one who can update the bug
status from NEEDINFO to ASSIGNED...
I don't see a way to do that, but perhaps checking the "I am providing the
requested information for this bug" will help. :)
Well, the checking of the checkbox would certainly help, but I can do something
Since the upstream reference was added, marking closed:upstream.
