Option "XkbLayout" "us,lt"
to xorg.conf file, in order to support different language layouts, after starting xfce shortcuts with "Alt" are not working anymore. (Alt+Tab, Alt+F4...), Shortcuts without "Alt" works OK (Ctrl+F1, Ctrl+F2, Ctrl+Esc...)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Exit from GUI (Xorg or anything)
2. Edit xorg.conf file
3. Edit keyboard section in "InputDevice"
4. Add Option "XkbLayout" "us,lt"
My section looks like:
Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc101"
#caused to stop working "Alt" xfce shortcuts
Option "XkbLayout" "us,lt,ru(phonetic)"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle"
5. Start again Xorg with xfce
6. Try closing applications "Alt+F4" or switching "Alt+Tab"
Everything works, I can switch layouts, but shortcuts are not working, I can not close window by Alt+F4, or switch window by Alt+Tab.
Shortcuts inside xfce should be working as they worked before.
2.6.21 kernel (same was with older kernel)
Indeed. That's odd. it works with xfce 4.0, but not with 4.2 nor 4.4
Ok, that was a tough one...
I believe this is now fixed in svn. You can try by using one of the current snapshots of xfwm4 and xfce-mcs-plugins available here:
Can you try these?
Well done. Looks like it works like it should. I have tried xfce-mcs-plugins-4.5.0svn-25673.tar.bz2
Now shortcuts are working as they should, also group switching declared in xorg.conf works as before.
Here this can be marked as resolved bug.
However now keyboard module from xfce is missing (I don't know if it is a problem or just in process of modification in new version):
Xfce settings manager error: no such plugin "keyboard", when trying to open keyboard module to edit shortcuts.
