Description thomas.swan 2013-02-14 05:39:40 UTC
Description of problem:
With compiz-0.8.8-13, I could bind ctrl+alt+right and ctrl+alt+left to rotate the cube left and right.  After upgrading to compiz-0.8.8-14 in testing, I was unable to bind ctrl+alt anything with it displaying <Primary>+<Alt>+Right in the binding box. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 compiz                  x86_64    1:0.8.8-14.fc18     updates-testing    922 k
 compiz-lxde             x86_64    1:0.8.8-14.fc18     updates-testing    7.0 k
 compiz-mate             x86_64    1:0.8.8-14.fc18     updates-testing     24 k
 compiz-plugins-extra    x86_64    1:0.8.8-8.fc18      updates-testing    2.5 M
 compiz-plugins-main     x86_64    1:0.8.8-7.fc18      updates-testing    1.1 M
 compiz-xfce             x86_64    1:0.8.8-14.fc18     updates-testing    7.0 k
How reproducible:
 always.  with and without a fresh profile.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable rotate cube with compiz-0.8.8-13 installed
2. rotate cube using ctrl+alt+right and ctrl+alt+left (defaults)
3. upgrade to compiz-0.8.8-14 in the updates-testing repo
4. unable to use the same key bindings
5. change the default bindings (which are now alt+right and alt+left, also used by firefox)  to ctrl+alt+left and ctrl+alt+right
6. notice that is is not recorded as ctrl+alt+right, but as <Primary>+<Alt>+<Right>
Actual results:
Can no long bind keystrokes ctrl+alt+something

Expected results:
Continued default bindings for ctrl+alt+something or at the minimum the ability to bind ctrl+alt+something

Comment 3 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-02-14 08:49:39 UTC
control is called now primary in ccsm.
But i forgot to change the defaults to primary in compiz-0.8.8-14
For this reason it was alt+right.
With compiz-0.8.8-15.fc18 it is changege to primary+alt+right.

It fixed the key binding issue.  Thank you.  This may be closed now.

Comment 6 thomas.swan 2013-02-18 02:11:37 UTC
I apologize. I must not have restarted compiz after upgrading.  The problem still persists.  <Control><Alt>Button 1 still shows and works for the mouse initiation of cube rotation.  Unable to set <Control><Alt>Right or Left for cube rotation.

Strangely enough, the "capture key" dialogue shows <Control> when pressing <Control>, <Alt><Control> when pressing both (starting with control), but <Primary><Alt>Right when pressing ctrl+alt+right.

Comment 7 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-02-18 20:26:06 UTC
Can you update ccsm too?
This should fix the confusion.
Those versions should be installed on your system.

Comment 8 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-02-18 20:29:40 UTC
I recommend to use the default button first to set shortcut.
