Found a possibly related upstream bug

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-04 20:20:09 UTC
So, keyboard shortcuts seem to be pretty hosed generally atm. 
We need to look into that for FC6. What happened to me earlier when
I investigated this was that I temporarily assigned Alt-1, Alt-2, etc
to functions. But when I later reset them again, my number keys were dead !
and they stayed dead even after switching keyboard layouts and trying several
other things. That can easily bring users into unfixable situations.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-04 20:30:03 UTC
Actually, I noticed something similar ; I had ctrl-shift-p as play/pause... and
then this morning I couldn't type a p anywhere in GNOME until I changed the
shortcut, logged out, whacked gconfd, and logged back in.

Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2006-08-08 08:15:36 UTC
comment 4 and comment 5 are the reason I asked upstream to remove those keys
from the capplet back in GNOME 2.13.
and other comments in the bug

Upstream didn't think that the fact that I wrote this code was a good enough
reason to disable that broken code...

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-25 17:39:12 UTC
Ray, I spent some time inside XKB today and wrote a little test program
that shows how to grab keys, and also how to ignore locked modifiers.

Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-25 17:42:30 UTC
Created attachment 134941 [details]

Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-25 19:19:32 UTC
Forgot to mention that we probably need to keep the "bind all permutations"
code as a fallback for the non-XKB case, at least when moving this upstream.

Thanks Matthias!  I didn't know XKB could be leveraged to make this easier.

Comment 12 Bastien Nocera 2007-04-04 16:40:51 UTC
Ray, isn't this fixed with the 2.18 version of the control-center and the D-Bus
multimedia keys support?
