Last modified: 2018-04-11 08:50:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Under certain conditions (as described below), Ctrl+Alt+arrow key combinations
generate characters like 'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', instead of switching the
desktops/turning the cube.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn Desktop Effects off. The Ctrl+Alt+arrow key combinations work normally.
2. Turn them on. The key still work.
3. Reboot/restart Gnome. Instead of their normal functions, the key combinations
generate uppercase alpha characters.
Keyboard shortcuts don't work, mouse must be used for accessing other desktops.
Keyboard shortcuts available.
Reporter, could you please reproduce this bug on the fully upgraded F7 (or F8,
If yes, please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X
server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual
uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
I could not reproduce it under F8, so it seems to be fixed.
Cool, thanks for letting us know.
