#286 closed enhancement

fancy input methods can interfere and break the keyboard — at Initial Version

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: critical Milestone: 0.9
Component: core Version: trunk

Description

If you start xpra from an environment which has input methods defined, the applications that you start will inherit those settings (and they might be global anyway via gconf or whatever?) and in some cases the application will be completely unable to use the keyboard!

Here are some of the environment variables that we may want to filter out, or even hardcode to sensible values that will not interfere with what we do:

DISABLE_IMSETTINGS=yes
GTK_IM_MODULE=gtk-im-context-simple
GTK_IM_MODULE=xim
GTK_IM_MODULE=
#IMSETTINGS_MODULE=
#QT_IM_MODULE as above?
