Hello x2go dev team,
I have Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS on a client machine and use ALT+SHIFT to
switch the keyboard layout.
As a client a use X2Go Client V. 22.214.171.124 - the latest thing available
from your repository at the moment.
On a remote machine I have Debian Wheezy with KDE 4.8.4 and the latest
x2go server from http://packages.x2go.org/debian. So should be
The problem is that if in KDE Keyboard settings in "Layouts" as a main
shortcut for switching layout i'll select the same layout I use locally
(ALT+SHIFT in my case) it will not work properly.
If you work on a remote machine and hit ALT+SHIFT - layout only switches
on a local machine. If you hit ALT+SHIFT multiple times quite fast
sometimes layout on a remote machine switches too. Sometimes not.
I tried to set different keyboard settings in the session settings -
does not help. If I set something other than the 'do not configure'
after connecting to the remote instead of 2 layouts I have a third one -
undef. Which will disappear if I just go to keyboard settings and apply
the same settings i had. Maybe that resets some settings which x2go does
after connection is established. But that 'undef' thing is not what
Problem with the layout switching has appeared long ago- since the
Ubuntu 13. As I remeber 12 was the latest one which worked normally.
After the upgrade from 12 to 13 even locally ALT+SHIFT combo didn't
work. That was a really big problem and that has a confirmed bug
There are some other related bugs, I can try to find them if needed.
It is partially fixed - at least ALT+SHIFT now works locally but since
that time I have a problem witch x2go as I described earlier.
I tried to use CAPS Lock on both machines - same problem. As I remember
I tried installing MATE instead of KDE - didn't help.
I believe that problem is in Ubuntu - in how it now intercepts keyboard
shortcuts. Through the 12->13 transition they changed something.
Please take a look at the problem. Currently I have different shortcuts
on remote a local machine. It's quite uncofortable.
