OSX Xpra Client, Ubuntu Xpra Server & calibre application.
In this configuration, the Linux app used to use Linux meta keys -- ctrl-C, ctrl-V, ctrl-A, etc. Recently some of the OSX meta keys work instead -- command-C/V/A, etc. I don't know if this was by choice or accident.
If this is on purpose to make apps feel like client apps, I think that is a mistake. Many applications explicitly display their meta keys as hints in menus 'Ctrl-P'. Also, some apps use complex meta combinations that may get lost in translation.
Also, I am currently unable to do disjoint selections in lists -- select, then ctrl-select (or command-select).
Also, ctrl-Q to close the application is intercepted by Xpra and Xpra closes.
Also, swapping ctrl for command doesn't work at all for command line apps and curses apps -- VIM, EMACS, shell navigation and exit, etc.
That's not a bug I am afraid, and not a new thing either (present in v0.11), see: #456
There is also an option in the menu to disable the swapping (we could add a command line option for it).
I'll try to remember to add the command line option, as for the other one it sounds like a real bug, so I am moving it to: #567 (please add yourself to the CC list)
The command line option has been added in r6427:
Note: you can also just place it in your
~/.xpra/xpra.conf or even
/etc/xpra/xpra.conf to make it global:
echo "swap-keys=no" >> ~/.xpra/xpra.conf
Beta builds including this change (and much more) are available here: osx beta area
If that works for you, please close this ticket.
The command line option worked.
The config file change did not and produced
Warning: invalid option: 'swap-keys'
That was a typo, r6434 fixes that.
New beta build available in the same location.
Works for me.
