I already posted this at the opensuse-kde mailing list. I was pinged that it's probably an 'upstream' question. So I guess this is the right place?
I installed OpenSUSE Leap 42.1.
I wanted the newer KDE experience, so following the info at
Version: Leap 42.1
KDE Frameworks 5: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Frameworks5/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/
I ended up with these installed
rpm -qa kded plasma-framework
I want to have a Keyboard Shortcut assigned to type my email address on a keystroke.
So I opened "System Settings"/"Workspace"/"Shortcuts"/"Custom Shortcuts"/"Configure Input Actions settings".
I right-clicked and created a "New > Global Shortcut > Send keyboard input" shortcut with Name == "TypeMyEmail"
Then I set
Comment == "Comment"
Trigger == "Meta+Ctrl+Alt+M"
Action == "m:e:Shift+2:e:x:a:m:p:l:e:.:c:o:m"
I open a LibreOffice document and press "Meta+Ctrl+Alt+M". I immediately get the email address
typed into the document.
I test it in Firefox when filling out forms and it works too.
But when I try it in any KDE application, like Kate or Konsole, I don't get the address output. I get different output depending on the app.
in Kate -> "."
in Konsole -> "^C"
in ApplicationLauncher -> it closes the window
in Dolphin -> "."
How do I fix this so the KDE Shortcuts work in KDE apps too?
