Description Hedayat Vatankhah 2013-04-30 20:53:31 UTC
Description of problem:
In Gnome applications (e.g. gedit), keyboard shortcuts work regardless of the active keyboard layout. Therefore, if I press Ctrl+S (Even if S is not mapped to "S" in the active keybaord layout, for example when Persian layout is active), it saves the current file. However, in libreoffice Ctrl+S doesn't work unless US keyboard layout is active. Therefore, if I want to save a file while I'm writing in Persian, I should change the layout to English and press Ctrl+S, and then switch back to Persian to continue typing. This is both inconvenient and also inconsistent with the normal behavior. I've seen this problem in both F18 and F19 Alpha.

This is not only LibreOffice bug but all java applications. For example, all JetBrains products have the same behaviour. This bug appeared after GNOME ibus integration in 3.6 (https://wiki.gnome.org/ThreePointFive/Features/IBus). So, maybe this is a Java bug (incorrect interaction with IBus? )?

So relating to our tests, bug found at GNOME related enviroments. KDE not.
