Shift + Numeric Shortcuts Not Working
Hey. I have been using Xubuntu 12.04 since the day it was released now and I have noticed one massively annoying bug or error when it comes to using some "shortcuts". I am struggling to explain this because they aren't really shortcuts and I didn't want to be too specific.
Basically what I found was that every time I use the shift key + one of either numeric 2 or numeric 6 it will not work. When I am typing I can type them fine (Shift + 2 = @, Shift + 6 = ^), but if they are shortcuts or buttons within a program to do anything that is not typing, they will simply not work and do nothing.
This could be an error with Java (6 and 7) or LWJGL or Minecraft. When I play Minecraft I find that when I am holding the shift key, I cannot hotkey using Shift + 2 or Shift + 6. It simply does not work.
Things I have tried:
- If I change the Minecraft controls to use another button instead of shift, it works fine, so it is probably not Minecraft.
- If I load the game with Java 6 instead of 7 it still does not work, so it is probably not Java.
- It does not work with the most recent version of LWJGL (development build), the most recent stable build or the ancient version that Minecraft uses by default. So it is probably not LWJGL.
- The problem does not occur on my Ubuntu 12.04 setup, my Windows 7 setup and my Windows Vista setup even though they are the exact same setup (I literally copied all the files over). I have no reports of anyone else having the problem, but on google I have found other Xubuntu users with the issue.
After this I am pretty sure it is Xubuntu. Please help me, I have been putting up with it for over a year now (it may have been on Xubuntu 11.04) and I really want to be able to hotkey and not to die and get banned from my server .
I accidentally erased my hard drive and windows in my first ever attempt at installing Ubuntu.
