RFE: secondary inputs not handled in overview
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:09:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Only primary keyboard and mouse can interact with the overview.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(not sure which is responsible so providing both)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. xinput create-master test
the new "test keyboard" has id 14
insert a second keyboard, id 17
2. xinput reattach 17 14
3. press win key
4. press win key
after 3 you are in overview, but 4 doesn't take you out of it.
be back in standard mode.
Couldn't yet reproduce this with XTest since I haven't figured out how to send an event to the "test XTEST keyboard"
This happens with the mouse too - you can use the hotspot, click any icon/window in overview mode when using the secondary mouse (a mouse attached to "test pointer" created with step 1).
There are other problems with multiple pointers, such as switching focus not working unless you click the title bar, instead of working anywhere in the window area you press (you can see this by just doing "xinput create-master bla" and not attaching any pointers to it, so easy to reproduce).
There's an upstream XI2 branch of mutter you can try out. We aren't going to do anything on this in the scope of Fedora (especially since I'm not aware of any real use cases for this other than fun.)
