What are we going to do about the broken modifiers?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Recent gtk updates have changed the way modifiers are handled and therefor broken a lot of applications. * ALT keys are broken in all gtk based terminals. There is a patch for vte available at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=626792 but even though it works, it seems controversial. * xfwm4 has lost all keyboard shortcuts using CTRL. See bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=759478 Even if the old to handle modifiers may have been wrong, this change should not have gone into a stable release, because it breaks a lot of applications (at least gnome-terminal, Terminal, lilyterm, sakura, termit, terminator, xfwm4) and violates the "Avoid changing the user experience if at all possible" rule of our updates policy. What are we going to do now? Revert the change in gtk or fix all applications?
