Description

Hi, there,
Thanks for the Xpra, it's an awesome product to use.
I have some troubles with setting my keyboard to work when I connect from Mac to my Linux machine.

I want to be able to remap my control and Cmd keys to Control_L and option to Alt_L.
Looks like it's impossible right now.

On mac I use Xpra.dmg from wineswitch and default server for Trusty:

I'm using Kinese Freestyle 2 for Mac keyboard, if this is important.
Here is output for xev on XQuartz local Mac , Normal X from Mac to Linux, Xpra from Mac to Linux, Xpra from Mac to Linux (no key swap), xpra from Linux to Linux, X local Linux.

OS / key code (keysym) left control left option left command right command right option
Local Mac XQuarz 67 (Control_L) 66 (Alt_L) 63 (Meta_L) 71 (Meta_R) 69 (Alt_R)
X From Mac to Linux 67 (Control_L) 66 (Alt_L) 63 (Meta_L) 71 (Meta_R) 69 (Alt_R)
Xpra from Mac to Linux 64 (Alt_L) 101 (Alt_L) 37 (Control_L) 37 (Control_L) 114 (Alt_R)
Xpra from Mac to Linux (no key swap) 37 (Control_L) 101 (Alt_L) 64 (Alt_L) 113 (Alt_R) 114 (Alt_R)
xpra from Linux to Linux 37 (Control_L) 64 (Alt_L) + 108 KeyRelease? 133 (Super_L) + 134 KeyRelease? 134 (Super_R) (only KeyRelease?) 108 (Alt_R) (only KeyRelease?)
X local Linux 37 (Control_L) 64 (Alt_L) 133 (Super_L) 134 (Super_R) 108 (Alt_R)

There are several problems here:
1) Xpra from Mac uses code 64 for either control or command, but xpra from linux uses code 64 for option
2) KeyRelease? Events are messed up when xpra connects from Linux
3) Xpra mapping for Mac are significantly different from both ssh -X and local X mappings, which is confusing

Can you help me to grasp how Xpra selects key codes for key presses and how does it maps it into keysyms?
And is this configurable in any way? Could it be that Xpra X server uses its own configuration?

Thank you.

Debugging keyboard bugs takes a crazy amount of effort, I am not saying this to discourage you, just so that you are aware of the task ahead.
The main problem on my side, apart from the lack of time, is that I use OSX in virtualbox only, and the virtualization already does some keyboard remapping, and the client OS also intercepts certain keys (though that can probably be configured). I guess I could try a USB keyboard pass-through, maybe that would work.

Judging by the amount of debugging information you have provided, you may have already found wiki/Keyboard?


Xpra from Mac uses code 64 for either control or command, but xpra from linux uses code 64 for option


I haven't looked at the details yet, just bear in mind that we map the mac keycodes to the server keymap.. so things can quickly get confusing.

KeyRelease Events are messed up when xpra connects from Linux


That would be bug and an unusual one, Linux to Linux works pretty well, usually.

Xpra mapping for Mac are significantly different from both ssh -X and local X mappings, which is confusing


Yes, they would be: the xpra client on OSX does not use X11 at all, it is a native application and therefore does not have access to the X11 keyboard information.


Can you help me to grasp how Xpra selects key codes for key presses and how does it maps it into keysyms?


Yes, it's ugly but you should get debug information by running the server or the client with:

xpra -d keyboard

or even:

xpra -d keyboard,verbose

A brief explanation for the macosx case: we set a default keymap on the server then try to map the macosx keyboard definition (the keysyms definitions for each key), minimizing the amount of remapping from client keycodes to server keycodes. (we generate a translation table as we remap keys). When the osx client sends the server a keycode (and modifier state, keysym, etc..), we look up the real keycode (for the actual server keymap in use) and press/unpress it.

And is this configurable in any way?


Unfortunately not, yet.

Looks like Xpra key mappings on a Mac is a mystery for me.
I want to make it behave as close to a normal X app as possible, for me Xpra is a drop-in replacement.
I'm totally comfortable with having XQuarz running or running xmodmap once to save configuration for Xpra to read.

I'll try to spend more time to understand how this works.
Meanwhile here are logs for left control key pressed.

Logs on the client:

2014-05-14 14:15:29,792 mask_to_names(<flags 8192 of type GdkModifierType>)=['mod2']

And on the server:

2014-05-14 14:17:21,816 make_keymask_match(('mod1', 'mod2')) current mask: set(['mod2']), wanted: set(['mod1', 'mod2']), ignoring=None/['lock'], keys_pressed={}

2014-05-14 14:17:21,818 handle keycode pressing 64: key Alt_L
2014-05-14 14:17:21,818 fake_key(64, True)
2014-05-14 14:17:21,819 handle keycode unpressing 64: key Alt_L
2014-05-14 14:17:21,819 fake_key(64, False)
2014-05-14 14:17:23,924 _clear_keys_pressed()

Additionally I've attached logs from server and a client startup. They output Tons of information.
Hope that this can help us to resolve a problem. =)

Then you may be better off compiling xpra against the X11 headers as we do on other X11 based platforms (Linux, BSD, ..). The problem is that there are still dozens of special cases for macs sprinkled throughout the code (checks for sys.platform.startswith("darwin") usually), and decide which ones can be kept and which ones should fall through..

I'm totally comfortable with having XQuarz running or running xmodmap once to save configuration for Xpra to read.


That's assuming that the XQuartz keyboard configuration is related to the one we get from GTK. It should be... but the devil is in the details.

I think you may well be interested in reading: ticket:567#comment:12 which is about "swap_keys" and keyboard sync and explains why we unpress the Alt_L key (just updated earlier today)

That's ok to close this ticket.

I've invested a dozen hours into this issue, no success.
These issues are definitely tricky.
