Write text doesn't respect keyboard layout

Post by slaecker » 22 Dec 2015, 13:19

Hi,

I wanted to let you know about a bug I discovered on version 3.9.1 compiled on Manjaro Linux x86_64 using KDE Frameworks 5.16.0 / Qt 5.5.1.

The "Write text" action performs different from the expectation.

I set up a script which reads text from a Data input, waits 2 seconds (giving me time to select a destination window) and writes the text using a Write text action.

I use the German keyboard layout. The aim of my script is to write text to a virtual machine window where I can't paste (to console).

Choosing a virtual machine window running the Arch Linux live cd the following happens:
Data input:

Code: Select all

if [ -f test ]; then rm test; fi && curl -L -o test "https://domain.de/test" && chmod +x test
Write text (appearing in VirtualBox):

Code: Select all

if [ \f test ] then rm test fi && curl \L \o test "https//domain.de/test" && chmod x test
Choosing a kate window the following happens:
Data input:

Code: Select all

if [ -f test ]; then rm test; fi && curl -L -o test "https://domain.de/test" && chmod +x test
Write text (appearing in kate):

Code: Select all

if 8 -f test 9; then rm test; fi ^^ curl -L -o test @https:&&domain.de&test@ ^^ chmod +x test

Thanks for the bug report. There is a known issue with key simulation that will be fixed in a future version of Actiona. Indeed the whole simulation process is being re-written, and this issue should be fixed as a side effect.
