Some number keys not working [solved]

by Niscobad » Sun Jan 28, 2018 13:00

I have the same " 7 / è / ` " key issue: I can't write 7.
I am using Manjaro Linux (Plasma/KDE edition), french keyboard layout.

That's a problem for world edit, for example, and signs too...
I hope it will be solved maybe in 0.5 version...?

However, if someone solved this problem, how did you do it?

"7": Issue from 2012, yet not fixed by the Irrlicht devs: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/302
" `'" ": Issue from 2017, another Irrlicht issue: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/6573
The solution, as described there, is changing the keyboard layout temporary to QWERTY. A long-term solution would be to help the Irrlicht developers in some way to get the key input system finally fixed.

Please add [Solved] in front of your topic title if this solved (at least temporary) your problem.

My keyboard follows the Brazilian Portuguese ABNT2 Layout (which is QWERTY)
Minetest in WIndows environment can accept characters with accent (like à ã õ ô é)
But when running Minetest on Linux Ubuntu 17.04 when trying to write those characters, i get an accent and the character separately. ("ã" >> "~a")
I have a problem with some numerical keys too.
In the numeric keyboard (that auxiliar part with numbers and math symbols) even with the "Num Lock" activated, the keys still work like it wasn't

Is there any solution for this?
In love with Minetest

Thanks Krock for your answer :)
Yes, I consider it's solved, although the problem is still existing. I understand it's a developing problem and you have currently a lot of of work with 0.5 version.
Unfortunately, i don't know irrlicht or anything in coding languages and i can't help... (for now)
Sorry for you nutty8, i think it will be the same answer as for me...
