[Bug 1218322] Re: Can't set keyboard layout change to alt+shift, ctrl+shift, etc.


Now that I hink of it, you are right, it's commonly used to enter a next
line on facebook and stuff like that, luckily the code for switchboard
was just merged, and you can get it on the next update, now you can go
to Settings>Keyboard>Shortcuts>Universal Access and change the shotcut

Bug description:

  Can't set keyboard layout change to Ctrl+Shift, Caps Lock, Alt+Shift,
  etc. Shift, Caps Lock keys are just ignored in settings.

  [Test Case]

  - open gnome-control-center's text input settings
  - click on the "next layout key" entry
  - try entering a combination of two modifier keys such as Ctrl+Shift
  -> the UI should reflect the new keys

  - add at least two input sources through gnome-control-center's text entry settings
  - press and release Ctrl+Shift
  -> the current input source should change

  [Regression Potential]

  That UI was not working before, it should only be an improvement (some
  key combos are not working as expected, that's another issue and
  shouldn't be mixed with this one)

  The input switching shortcut might capture other non-modifier
  shortcuts, but users will need to consider this when choosing their
  switching shortcut anyways. For users this bug affects, this
  represents a working solution for a critical bug.
