Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 891907
The key you just pressed is not supported by Qt. (alt+shift shortcuts)
Last modified: 2016-05-05 00:40:41 EDT
Description of problem: Cannot use 'alt' + 'shift' keys in KDE shortcuts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
current Fedora 18 pre-release
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. system settings -> shortcuts & gestures -> select some shortcut
2. use shortcut featuring both alt and shift key
3. popup with $subject appears
Actual results: shortcut is not defined
Expected results: alt+shift+something shortcut
Additional info: Shortcuts with alt+shift defined from previous installations are present in the list, but don't work.
I would just like to confirm that this is still present in the latest updates on Fedora 18 (KDE 4.10.1).
In addition, I noticed that Fedora 17 has recently updated to what appears to be both the same versions of KDE and QT (qt-4.8.4-14), but I do not seem to get the same issue on Fedora 17. Therefore, this problem is not obviously dependent on the QT version.
Also, I confirmed that if you attempt to use Alt+Shift as shortcut, you get the following message immediately:
"The key you just pressed is not supported by Qt." (As reported by the original author of this bug)
For what it's worth, I don't see the same problem on Suse 12.3, which uses KDE 4.10.
I have personally tested in three environments:
1) A Mac mini late 2012.
1) An HP Pavilion laptop.
3) Through a newly installed virtual machine image.
I have seen exactly the same problem in all three situations.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
I have just retested this on a clean install of Fedora 20 (using VirtualBox VM). This problem now appears to be solved. You can set the key combination that was causing the problem without any issues and the pre-existing keyboard shortcuts that use the problem combination seem to work correctly.
OK, thanks for the report.
