Keyboard shortcuts not working (Linux desktop) #51

Open
opened 11 months ago by schlink · 1 comments

While using the new Beta of Cwtch, I'm unable to use keyboard shortcuts like copy (control+c) and paste (control+v). However I can control+click to get a menu to then select these functions and that works just fine.

I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS. I'll note that I'm not 100% that I installed the new beta release correctly, so if others can't reproduce this issue, feel free to disregard.

Neither ctrl-ins and shift-ins and same with del.

Also no pgup/pgdown scrolling, no ctrl-backspace, and a whole lot of everyday keyboard functions. (Basically they seem to have rewritten the keyboard handling from groups up with mobile in their mind, so it bears no resemblance to the system-wide OS supported keyboard shortcuts.)

I think this is a general problem with flutter applictions and everyone seems to fight with flutter to make it at least bearable on desktop (with not much success, judging from what I have seen).
