Please note that I'm following Arch upstream xorg-server package as close as possible. The empty PGP key has appeared in this commit:

Whoever as affected should consider reporting to Arch bug tracker.

If you have a problem like 2dorf4u a comment below:

This PKGBUILD has an empty pgp key in requirements! To properly install if for the first time you would need to edit it: (remove line with empty key)

yay --editmenu -S xorg-server-bug865

Note: while it should work, for me it didn't, I was lazy to investigate. Another way would be:

yay -G xorg-server-bug865
#edit the PKGBUILD
makepkg -si

If you are updating, then you should already have all required keys, so simply do NOT import keys (type 'n') here:

:: PGP keys need importing:
-> , required by: xorg-server-bug865
==> Import? [Y/n]

This package only works for Ctrl+Shift, doesn't it? I tried using it with RShift for switching layout, but RShift+letter doesn't result in typing a capital letter anywhere (I tried Alacritty, Emacs, Firefox, Chromium and gave up). Same with RCtrl, it types a letter instead of doing whatever a Ctrl+letter shortcut should do. However, keyboard layout switches when I release a RShift/RCtrl, not when I press on it, and it works as expected for Ctrl+Shift and combinations such as Ctrl+Shift+T.

@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.


trollixx commented on 2020-05-17 23:15

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.
