Same issue with Normal Size (Ctrl + 0) works with the qwerty keyboard, it doesnt work when using the Number Pad (Ctrl + 0)
Comment 3 David Jaša 2012-12-04 12:28:59 EST
Confirmed. Alphanumeric keyboard works like charm even when there has to be shift pressed ("ctrl shift =" on en_US layout to get ctrl + on en_us layout, "ctrl shift é" on cs_CZ to get ctrl 0) but when using numeric keys, nothing happens.

please reporter, either open as duplicate or add correct bug dependencies...

This bug was reported for mingw-virt-viewer too #921218, and here is the comment I left:

I opened an upstream bug to Gtk+. If it's acceptable, the solution should be pretty trivial.

Ah, this bug also requires the following patch (https://www.redhat.com/archives/virt-tools-list/2014-September/msg00053.html) to fix a regression introduced with the previous fix.

"previous fix" is commit v1.0-23-g3a16881
Comment 10 Fabiano Fidêncio 2014-09-25 09:57:43 EDT
Copying from:

"Okay, the current situation is:
- Only one accelerator can be used per widget, unless we start using GApplication for the {remote,virt}-viewer, what is something I wouldn't like to do/have as long as we are still maintaining GTK2 support.
- A way to workaround this is having 2 widgets, with different accelerators (aka, one accelerator per widget) and then we have the menu items being duplicated, what I don't think is acceptable."

So, I'm closing the bug as WONTFIX here.
