I am using Linux Mint with xfce4 desktop. I found out that, in games (for instance Civilization 5 or Durkes Dungeon or Sunless Sea), left mouse click + shift acts like "click" without shift. Shift+Click actively used in games but I cannot find why it doesn't works. I tested it scancodes in xterm - it seems that Shift modifier is received alongside with click. but in games I cannot make it works.


Question unrelated to xfce4 or anything else from its dependencies. Problem was cause by XNeur keyboard layout switcher. It defines Tab for its action abbreviation completion and Shift Tab for some other actions. After clearing these bindings everything works. Without it these shortcuts ever doesn't caught by xev.
