KDE Keyboard -- CTRL / ALT keys in Konsole - MtnSk8 - 02-21-2021

Hi, I'd like to exit/save a document in Nano but the Plasmanjaro keyboard won't allow it.  Can I use something like xdotool and set a "quick action" in qmlKonsole that sends the Ctrl-x key combo?

or

Is there an xdotool equivalent for wayland ?

or

Any other way to get Ctrl and Alt key functionality in the KDE virtual keyboard?  Shy


Thanks.

@MtnSk8 

I was slightly puzzled by the qmlkonsole virtual keyboard having just installed Manjaro Plasma Mobile - I've been using Mobian for a while now.

I just noticed that the top 'bar' scrolls left and right with Ctrl Alt Esc Tab etc keys just after the Hamburger.

I just pressed Ctrl and it stays highlighted until you press it again, so it should work as expected...

Ha ha ha, I just tried it and it does not work, see this bug report

https://gitlab.manjaro.org/manjaro-arm/issues/pinephone/plasma-mobile/-/issues/23

I tried the Actions but that didn't work either , it just pastes the text in nano....

I guess we have to wait for coders to bug fix eventually.

I think a lot of us just SSH from our laptop / desktop, that makes things a lot easier.
If you're on the move, though, I agree you'd expect the virtual keyboard to work.

I'm sure the commit will be merged into master and we'll get the update at some stage, hopefully soon.

I got spoiled using Mobian with the terminal keyboard always available. Big Grin 

Thanks for the reply.

Actually, correct bug report is here (the QMLKonsole git):
https://invent.kde.org/plasma-mobile/qmlkonsole/-/issues/1

So patch above is not to the original project git so it will never come.

It would be good for someone with an account with kde.org to mention the above proposed code.

Do the Manjaro guys check this forum or stick to their own?

I just figured out how to modify the Mobian squeekboard keyboard, wondering about the Plasma Mobile one.
Mobian one doesn't seem to cater for Caps Lock, though, so I created a Capslock key that takes you to an uppercase keyboard.

I must say I'm no fan of fragmentation, so Pine64 choosing a desktop environment should be a good thing.
Shame there isn't a desktop environment subsection for Manjaro on Pinephone (same about ugly Manjaro forum).

I switched to terminator, which I use on my laptop and had installed on Mobian, too.
I use to run a script via a desktop launcher.

Interestingly the terminator keyboard does NOT have the top scroll line that qmlKonsole has, so what I really want to know is how to modify the original virtual keyboard to add relevant navigation keys etc. Pretty basic for a touchscreen device.....

Does anybody know?
