Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2014-09-09 09:42:50 CEST
When running the native client on some distributions, you cannot zoom out from a terminal window with Ctrl+-. This has been verified on Ubuntu, but also reported to be a problem on Xubuntu and Archlinux. It works correctly with CentOS 6 though. On the server, when running xev, we can see that a very strange keysym is generated (something like 100000f).
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2014-09-09 12:28:12 CEST
Apparently fixed by bug 4677, but I'd like to understand why this only happens on some distributions before we close it.
Comment 3 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2014-09-10 14:33:30 CEST
Verified to occur on Fedora 18 as well.
Comment 4 Pierre Ossman cendio 2014-09-11 11:11:11 CEST
Contrary to earlier claims, it is broken on CentOS as well. So it seems every Linux (X11?) system is affected.
Comment 5 Pierre Ossman cendio 2014-09-11 13:30:34 CEST
Brain dead code found in FLTK:

>      if ((xevent.xkey.state & ControlMask) && keysym == '-') kp_buffer[0] = 0x1f; // ^_

No idea what this code is supposed to do. The commit message does not make things clearer. I've suggested to the FLTK devels that it be removed.
Comment 6 Pierre Ossman cendio 2014-09-15 14:01:02 CEST
Removed upstream, but fixed in our builds by bug 4677.
Comment 7 Peter Åstrand cendio 2014-09-30 13:43:20 CEST
Verified with build 4506.
