I installed Fedora 21 with Mate. When I tried to bind the hotkey Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Up (for moving a window to some desktop), it tells me that I am already using Ctrl+Alt+Up for switching. I can't understand why it ignores the Shift key.

Also I noticed some strange behavior in JetBrains IDE's (but the same default config on Debian distros works fine). For example Alt+Shift+Up doesn't move the line up/down. I will be grateful for any suggestions.

  • Run xev from a terminal and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Up on the xev window. Several paragraphs beginning with KeyPress event will appear in the terminal. On the third line of one of these paragraphs, you'll see (keysym 0xff52, Up). At the beginning of the line, you should see state 0xd. If you see a different value for state, copy-paste all the paragraphs beginning with KeyPress or KeyRelease into your question. – Gilles Feb 21 '15 at 22:43
  • It looks like you have something in your keyboard configuration that causes Ctrl+Alt+Shift to be mapped to something different (so you get ISO_Next_Group instead of Shift). This is due to the XKB configuration. I'm not familiar enough with XKB to tell you where to look or how to fix. What is your keyboard configuration exactly (language and other options)? If you have a keyboard configuration GUI with lots of checkboxes, one of them might be the cause of this behavior. – Gilles Feb 22 '15 at 10:51
  • I got correct Shift_L, when press just Shift. Tried to search in keybord config, but nothing. I'll try to search something related to XKB. – Sergey Chizhik Feb 23 '15 at 15:40
  • @SergeyChizhik, have you resolved this ? – Muhammad Gelbana Sep 5 '16 at 9:42
  • @MuhammadGelbana hi. Actually nope, I've decided to use Linux mint ;) – Sergey Chizhik Sep 5 '16 at 12:51
