For some reason, FLUID's FL_COMMAND+FL_SHIFT+'c' shortcut for File->Write Code no longer works within KDE 4 for openSUSE 11.1

I noticed this some time ago when I was using openSUSE 10.3. As a result, I'm not sure what rev of 1.3.x it started.

My current info:
FLTK 1.3.x r6645 (SVN)
openSUSE 11.1
KDE 4.1.96 release 78.2 (KDE 4.2 RC1)
Xorg 7.4-10.1

I have posted a simple workaround that does not correct the problem. It is only meant as a temporary workaround.

The patch changes the shortcut from FL_COMMAND+FL_SHIFT+'c' (Ctrl+Shift+c) to FL_COMMAND+FL_ALT+'c' (Ctrl+Alt+c).

I can confirm under Fedora3 + FLWM.

Definitely not the window manager eating events, because if
I move over to fltk-1.1.7's fluid, same SHIFT-CTRL-C works fine.

Seems *all* the SHIFT+CTRL shortcuts are not working in 1.3.x fluid.
(Regular CTRL-(X) shortcuts work OK)

Some interesting notes:

1) If I turn on CAPS LOCK, then SHIFT-CTRL-(X) shortcuts work OK.
2) With CAPS LOCK on, CTRL-(X) shortcuts *stop* working.
3) If I make an app with SHIFT-(X) shortcuts, they work OK, whether CAPS LOCK is on or not.

Posted an updated patch that can be applied to (at the time) latest svn (rev 7235)

Attached is a patch (str2131-r9162.patch) that changes the File->"Write Code..." shortcut to AL+CTRL+c where CTRL is set using FL_COMMAND. This seems to work just fine.

Despite its name, the patch applies cleanly to svn r10223.

This seems to be a problem of the core library. I suggest testing this with test/keyboard on those machines. No problems on macOS or my Ubuntu VM.

I do agree however that the Fluid shortcuts are very - um - uncommon.

Is this still an issue, or can we close this STR?

I don't think that changing the shortcut from command/shift/c to command/alt/c is a proper solution because this would break the habits of many FLTK users.

Unless we can *add* other menu items or (hidden?) shortcuts that do the same?
