[jitsi-users] Jitsi prevents key bindings from working in other applications (thread renewal)


#1

Dear Jitsi developers,

The bug described here [1] is reproducible on my Gentoo Linux system,
but probably was never submitted to the Jitsi bug tracker (Trac). I
discovered this problem with global keyboard shortcuts when
Ctrl+Shift+T stopped working in Konsole, and it turned out Jitsi was
blocking that key combination.

Please confirm this bug and then I will report this bug at trac.jitsi.org.

Thanks for bringing this up again. We didn't get a chance to discuss it properly last time.

As mentioned in this thread, these are just default key combos and can be changed by users through the configuration panel (Advanced -> Keybindings -> Global shortcuts).

I understand how defaults may conflict but I am still not inclined to view this as a bug. We need to have some defaults and most key combos are going to be used by one app or another.

I'd be happy for us to have a ticket along the lines of "Consume global shortcut events only when they apply". Note however that unless a volunteer turns up with a patch, this is unlikely to be looked at in the near future.

William Linna began a patch [1], but there's been no response to my comments
[2] on it (which was probably sent way too late, but I just cannot supervise
all patches...).
