Description Juan Carlos Torres 2007-03-12 15:52:05 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

The global shortcut for Read Message in Kopete conflicts with the shortcut for unindent in Kate when both apps are running. Both use Ctrl+Shift+I for the shortcut.

Suggestion: Change the Read Message global shortcut to something else, like Ctrl+Shift+M (Ctrl+Shift+R is Close Current View for Konqueror already).

I repeat that I said on ubuntu launchpad : Ctrl+Shift should not be used for global shortcut. I think that Ctrl+Alt should be use instead, like klipper global shortcuts or kdesktop global shortcuts (Ctrl+alt+d ...).

If you swap to Ctrl+Shift+M, the problem risks to appear with an other app in the future.

Ctrl+alt+R and Ctrl+alt+R are allready used, so what about Ctrl+alt+T (T for talk) ?

Comment 3 Philippe 2007-04-06 12:20:07 UTC
I confirm the bug. With this new one I ask myself if global shortcuts should be better regrouped in a same menu for a global configuration. 
Comment 4 Ruud Koolen 2008-07-07 02:18:29 UTC
Confirmed in kde4 (kopete 0.50.80).
Comment 5 Jonathan Thomas 2008-11-06 03:09:26 UTC
I can confirm this with KDE 4.1.3.
Comment 6 Rémy Greinhofer 2009-12-21 20:53:40 UTC
The problem is still there with KDE SC 4.3.4 (Kopete 0.80.2 and Kate 3.3.4).

I never solved a bug so far, but I am willing to do it as a junior job.

I plan to change the shortcut to ctrl+alt+t. Any suggestions/complains?

The patch changes the hotkey for hide/show contact list from Ctrl+Shift+I to Ctrl+Alt+T.

The attached patch changes the hotkey for hide/show contact list from Ctrl+Shift+I to Ctrl+Alt+T. This is necessary because the old one conflicts with local hotkeys (for instance kate: unindent line).

T as in Talk.

*The patch is untested, as I wasn't able to compile kopete, because of some missing cmake dependencies.

Best regards,

SVN commit 1240754 by lvsouza:

Commit patch from bug entry to change hotkey for hide/show
contact list from Ctrl+Shift+I to Ctrl+Alt+T, so that it
does not conflicts with Kate's hotkey.
Thanks Robert Riemann for this patch.

Unfortunately I saw it too late, it will appear only in
KDE SC 4.8.0.
