While using an application on XFCE, pressing a keyboard shortcut\hotkey that overlaps with an XFCE hotkey, I find the XFCE hotkey effect taking place instead.
For instance, Eclipse IDE has the hotkey:
Shift + Alt + S, while XFCE switches the keyboard layout by using the hotkey
Shift + Alt.
So when I press
Shift + Alt, the keyboard layout changes before I have the chance to complete the hotkey combination and press
A colleague suggested that this is because XFCE processes hotkeys when they are pressed, not when they are released.
I do not want to change these shortcuts because I use Windows and Linux all the time and I do not want to confuse my self.
My questions are:
- How to configure XFCE to process hotkeys on key release, not on key pressing
- Does Enlightenment, Gnome 3, Mate, Cinnamon handle keyboard hotkeys better than XFCE ? Or at least in the way I'm mentioning here, which is on key releasing, not on key presssing.
- What other desktop environments handle hotkeys on releasing and not on pressing ?
