Keyboard shortcuts in ksettings.
I am unable to use accented chars for keyboard shortcuts.
Example: I have four virtual desktops, and I would like to set a keyboard shortcuts to send a window to virtual desktops number 4, which I would like to do by hitting Alt+Shift+4. On my Swiss keyboard layout, the combination Shift+4 yields the character ç, which is used in French, so Alt+Shift+4 actually renders Alt+Shift+ç. Setting this keyboard short wouldn't work.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Enable a keyboard layout with accented chars (I use the Swiss layout).
2. Open ksettings > Keyboard shortcuts > kwin > Move window to virtual desktop 4 > set something with accented char.
3. Apply and try.
You may want to try another keyboard shortcut without accented char, for comparison.
I have done some trials, and it appears that only accented chars wouldn't work (ç, à, é, ö, ...). For instance, setting it to Alt+Shift+V, or even with special chars would work, such as Alt+Shift+". Shift if not the cause as Alt+é would fail too.
Keyboard shortcuts with accented chars shall work.
I used the shortcut Alt+Shift+ç for years on GNOME under Xorg, and I recently set it up on Linux Mint Cinnamon, so I believe that it is not a Xorg thing.
I am not sure it has something to do kwin; I'm an end-user and I know little in that field. Please move my bug report if necessary.
