Version: (using KDE KDE 3.1.2)
Installed from: SuSE RPMs
Compiler: gcc 3.2
if i use Ctrl-Shift as a keyboard layout switch
in xkb, then i cant use any of Ctrl-Shift- shortcuts
as soon as press down both Ctrl- and Shift-, the layout
is switched, and there is no way to make it work with any other
third key as shortcut.
however, i use the same combination
for layout switch in Windows, and it
gets switched only when i RELEASE both keys,
and if i hold down Ctrl- Shift- and press
any other key -- it will work as a usual
shortcut and the layout will not get switched.
i dont want to stop using Ctrl-Shift as a layout switch,
because it isvery comfirtable to me, and at the same
time i am used to combinations like
Ctrl-Shift- leftarrow, and i know that this is not
a KDE's problem, but despite numerous users' posts
in various mail-lists -- this problem still remains.
Is there any chance to solve it from this side?
perhaps Ellis knows
I've gotten other requests for this too, and hope to have it implemented for KDE 3.2.
In any case, it's on my "active" todo list. However, I need to know exactly how the
shortcut works. Does Shift+Ctrl work too? Ctrl_Left+Shift_Right?

i have SuSE 8.2, and XFree 8.3
here is my XF86Config:
Option "AutoRepeat" "250 30"
Option "MapName" "Generic Windows Keyboard [ pc105 ]"
Option "Protocol" "Standard"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,ru"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbVariant" ",winkeys"
(in previous versions configuration was similar)
When used in such manner, i can use any of the Ctrl-Shift
combinations available (right or left or right-left)
as U see -- i use Scroll led to indicate group switch,
and it is lid as soon as both keys are DOWN,
in MS Windows the group is changed only
when both keys are released, and no other key
unfortunately, this relatesd not only to KDE applications,
recently i am using Netbeans -- a cool java IDE, and there as well Ctrl-Shift
shortcuts do not work under described conditions.
hmm, just side note for this shift-ctrl bug: in katepart for example I can't get the SHIFT-CTRL-I accel working for the unindent action, related problem ? I have no special xkb config, just normal de layout, no other options
it's really bad to have the shortcut visible in the menu but doesn't work :/
luckily, there is X.org now, which, as i denote, will soon become THE x-server for everything, and, unlike XF86 -- they have public BUGZILLA!
i posted this bug there: http://freedesktop.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=865
this thing is really annoying, and i hope it gets fixed soon.
Did this ever get fixed? or is it still a problem in recent KDE 3 or KDE 4?
The problem is still there
is it so hard to add a flag to fire "Change Layout" event on _RELEASE_ of
the combination, but not on _PRESS_ ?

I confirm that recent version of KDE (4.4.1) is still affected.
This is an X.org server issue, see bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=865. KDE developers cannot do anything about it.
After the next update of the package "xserver-xorg-input-evdev-hwe-16.04" (with dependencies) from the version "1: 2.10.2-1ubuntu1 ~ 16.04.1" to the version "1: 2.10.5-1ubuntu1 ~ 16.04.1 ", in the KDE shell, the language switch does not happen when the keys are released, but when pressed.
Distributions on which this problem was repeated:
Distributions in which there is no such problem:
ubuntu-17.04-desktop-amd64 (but there is no such package)
When setting the switch to Ctrl-Shift, you can not quickly select text with the "Ctrl-Shift-Arrows" keys. However, you do not want to have outdated xorg packages. Extremely uncomfortable, help!
