ctrl-shift based combinations do not work as input-source-switch
Last modified: 2013-08-19 20:43:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Following key combinations do not work as input-source-switch:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add second keyboard layout
2. Run command gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard input-sources-switcher 'ctrl-shift'
3. Relogin to cinnamon
ctrl-shift doesn't work as layout switch
ctrl-shift should work as a layout switch because this combination exists in gsettings range org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard input-sources-switcher
other arguments like caps or shift-caps are ok
The way these shortcuts are handled changed in 3.8.3. You need to have all of mutter, gnome-shell, gnome-settings-daemon and gnome-control-center >= 3.8.3 for it to work. Is that the case?
$ rpm -q gnome-shell control-center gnome-settings-daemon mutter
still unable to get ctrl-shift working
But are you actually running GNOME or is it some other desktop? This was initially filed against cinnamon.
This issue is related to Cinnamon only. No problem with GNOME.
