Fixed bug under Linux - no keyboard input in gnome terminals
« on: January 22, 2018, 04:41:51 pm »
Thanks to @goberghen I was able fix keyboard problem in VTE (gnome) based terminals.

Fix involves use of X11 extension named XInput (v2). The one drawback is that in multi-tab terminals like Terminator, game left on some tab in the background is actively interpreting key strokes entered into foreground terminal tab.  :o I hope we can live with it by now.

Is this fix still supposed to work? I am using gnome and can't get pass the "press any key screen".

Hi,
What terminal did you try? I've just checked xterm - indeed, there's such problem.
Any chance to check different one?

... I'll look into it tomorrow.
