Description adam.huffman 2001-04-17 22:36:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010316

On a freshly-installed 7.1 system, the bindings installed for Sawfish do
not all work e.g. TAB doesn't work, so I can't switch to different windows
or workspaces with the keyboard.  The bindings to switch to specific
workspaces do not work.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Press shift-control-tab to move a window to the next workspace
2.Press Alt-F2 to move to the second workspace
3.Press Alt-tab to cycle between windows

Actual Results:  Either nothing happens or there is a beep

Expected Results:  Window should have moved, etc

This may well be a problem with the XFree86 keymap but I'm assigning it to
Sawfish at first.

The relevant part of XF86Config-4:

        Option  "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option  "XkbModel"      "pc105"
        Option  "XkbLayout"     "gb"

$LANG is set to en_GB and I am in runlevel 5

I have the same issue on two freshly installed RH7.1 systems.  The config seems
to be identical:
The relevant part of XF86Config-4:

         Option  "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
         Option  "XkbModel"      "pc105"
         Option  "XkbLayout"     "gb"

 $LANG is set to en_GB and I am in runlevel 5

Sawfish configuration tool indicates it has a "Meta key" (M) and an "Alt key"
(A).  The default bindings all set to use M, the meta key, but this is not the
alt key on the gb keyboard layout.  I modifed the bindings to use the A, alt
key, in the .sawfish/custom file in my home directory and all the default key
combinations now work as expected.

This is either fixed or a dup of #51172, AFAICT.
