Key combos not working under Linux Lite 2.4

Post by Xorcist » Thu Aug 27, 2015 4:11 am

I am able to run single key commands like F5 and F7, but CTRL/SHIFT/ALT+Anything doesn't.
I'm running Linux Lite 2.4 (based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) and CodeLite 8.1.0, any idea why this might be happening?

Try this:
settings->keyboard shortcuts and click on the "defaults" button

If this still does not work, then its probably a wxWidgets bug

Hi,

FWIW I just succeeded in setting ctrl-sh-alt-D and ctrl-sh-alt-F1 in ubuntu 14.04 (unity). So if it still fails for you, it might also be that some or all ctrl-sh-alt- combinations are swallowed by your DE or by Linux Lite itself.

Try setting one that fails in another, non-wxWidgets, program and see if it works there.

Regards,

David

Okay, turns out this is a Window Manager issue. CTRL+F5 was set as the keyboard shortcut to switch to the 5th workspace (which I don't have, I only have three). I cleared that key-combo from XFCE and bingo CodeLite opened the Run dialog. So for anyone else running into issues (with any apps), check if any Window Manager keyboard shortcuts that might be overlapping with application keyboard shortcuts.
