 Software News : Chat client Pidgin 2.13.0 for AmiCygnix released
Thanks for the new software package. Great job. By the way, I will report one small problem regarding the ALT + L keyboard shortcut. In Polish keyboard this gives the character "Ł". Unfortunately, when using Dynamic Window Manager it cannot be entered. So I still have to use openbox (here "Ł" works ok).

Really strange, that it depends on the window manager. The problem will be hard to find as I have not much knowledge about the things a window manager is able to do. But let's see...

Thanks for the hint and have fun with Pidgin!

I think the problem is some keyboard shortcut in Dynamic Windows Manager, because in the case of Claws Mail the combination of ALT + L increases my editor area. You would probably need to remove or redefine this shortcut.

@mufa

Yes, you're right - the problem are the shortcuts. I've looked into the dwm man file and there are following shortcuts:

ALT + key
ALT + SHIFT + key
ALT + CTRL + key
ALT + SHIFT + CTRL + key

All qualifiers are hardcodes into the binary. We must replace the "ALT + key" shortcuts or replace the ALT qualifier. Hmm - maybe we should use the meta qualifier (window / amiga key)

@ mufa

As a workaround you could remove the qualifier with this command:

xmodmap -display localhost:1 -e "clear Mod1"

(type into a normal amiga shell)

Where "1" must be the desired display number (see window title).

This qualifier definition is only used by plain X11 programs, so it should not be a problem. Of course shortcuts for dwm do not work anymore.

If this helps, I will find a way to make this permanent.

Very nice.
If you feel bored someday or have too much spare time maybe you can take a look at the slack plugin and see if it's possible to port it? :)

Yes, it helped the "Ł" sign works OK. Thanks a lot.

@smf

I will give it a try


@mufa

Great!

To make this permanent, please download this archive:

http://www.amicygnix.de/files/dwm-fix.lha

Unpack the archive and:

* Copy the file ".xmodmaprc" to "Cygnix:Home/root"
* Replace the file "Execute_Standalone.bat" in "Cygnix:S"

This replaces the qualifier "ALT" with "Meta left" (left Amiga or Windows key), so you can still use the dwm shortcuts with this qualifier.
If you don't want this, comment out the line "add Mod1 = Meta_L" with an "!" in the file ".xmodmaprc".

I think I will add this to my next AmiCygnix update.
