@trollixx Zero chances. We will celebrate 16 years of this bug in couple of months. Making it a configuration won't change anything, because basically this is how it should work by a "specification", and Xorg is so cool that it doesn't break promises made in 90s.

Any chances of getting the patch upstreamed? I see that the configuration bit is currently missing, but are there any other known issues?

Heads up: rebuild this package when nettle 3.6 ( exists testing.

@uxaked I believe the best way is to use AUR helper that can handle wrong architecture automatically, such as pikaur.

uxaked commented on 2020-03-26 21:48

is it possible to make aarch64 version of this package?

Okay, there was a misunderstanding on my side on what this patch fixes and it seems it does not help me with my problem.

Thank you very much anyways.

@OLStefan this patch is only relevant for group actions, i.e. key combinations like Ctrl+Shift etc. It won't work for single keys (like super key).

You are saying that Alt+Shift+Tab still "works" in mainstream Xorg after setting keyboard switching shortcut to Alt+Shift. It shouldn't work: either you don't really understand what this patch fixes, or you messed something up in your system.

I tried using 'setxkbmap -option grp:alt_shift_toggle' with both this package and the mainstream version, with both the Alt+Shift+Tab Shortcut did work.

I also restarted after installing each of the xorg-server packages I tried.

OLStefan, seems patch works only with Xorg keybindings, and Xfce keybindings work on another layer. Try to set keyboard switching to Alt + Shift (e.g. with setxkbmap -option grp:alt_shift_toggle). Alt + Shift + Tab shortcut should be broken now with mainstream Xorg and working with this package.

I have set a hotkey (for example open the Whisker-menu on press of the super key) via the Xfce keyboard settings.

I also wanted to set hotkeys for window tiling, like in Windows, so set super and left to tile the window to the left. But the problem is as soon as i hit the super key the whisker menu opens and prevents me from using the tiling hotkey.

I'd expect that with using this patch the Whisker hotkey would only kick if I release the super key without pressing other keys, so i can use other shortcuts using the super key as a modifier.
