Start WebPositive, press the left Alt key and Enter together. You will enter fullscreen mode.

Press the left Alt+Enter again to exit fullscreen mode.

Try using the RIGHT Alt and Enter. Fullscreen doesn't happen.

I don't this is a bug. Open the Keymap preferences and see what key lights up (or darkens, actually) when you press the left or the right ALT key. The left ALT should be COMMAND, the right ALT (often "AltGr") is OPTION. So the shortcuts are not interchangeable.

I thought that was right ctrl and/or the windows key?

comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by humdinger

WINDOWS key is also OPTION. At least over here...
It depends on the keyboard and keymap, I'm sure, but for the majority I think the above is true. Check with Keymap prefs.

At least on US layouts there's no distinction between alt/altgr, they map to the same keycode.

comment:5 Changed 9 years ago by humdinger

Then AltGr+ENTER should enter fullscreen for you. Right?

Anyway, I suggest (once more :) ) to write e.g. CMD+C for copy-shortcut, and CMD+OPT+I to start DiskUsage add-on, CTRL+CMD+Cursor to change workspaces. That way it doesn't matter if your CMD key is Alt, Ctrl or was mapped to Shift...

This indeed a keymap issue. The alpha2 anyboot image at least defaults to the US-International keymap which has the right Alt mapped as Opt (Win) and right Win unmapped for Generic 104/105-key keyboards. So there is no Cmd (Alt) key on the right side.

An unapplied patch was provided in #4464.

Note that the anyboot at least does not include this at boot.

That's right. I don't have a right CMD key either. I seem to have a hard time understanding keymap troubles... :) Maybe because I don't have a keyboard with unmapped keys. To get a right CMD key I'd have to sacrifice a key, AltGr (OPT), Menu (MENU) or CTRL (CTRL).

I think the locale selection only comes up on read-only media (?)

The keymap on my install of alpha 2 was US international - I think this was by default, at least I do not remember changing it, and I did not see the install/live cd dialog at boot - I am using an anyboot image.

Changing the layout to "American" gave me two CMD keys and caused WebPositive to behave as expected.

Sorry, please close ticket.
