Do

Won't Execute Selection (Enter doesnt work)

Asked by bruce on 2008-06-11

everything seems to work fine, (running 0.5)
<super>+<space> brings up gnome-do ....
navigation works fine,
but pressing enter on the item does nothing (except hide gnome-do)
its almost like i'm pressing escape instead.

i'm using an apple keyboard if that helps, and never had problems with enters anywhere else

Are you using GNOME? Which distro?

Is this for all items? Have you tried it with different items/actions?

bruce (bruce-aldridge) said : #5

i tried about 15 different items/actions (using various plugins, ie file/folder, url, pidgin etc)

i only have one entry under the keyboard tab in preferences, is this normal? i thought it was odd that there was only one for a tab

Also its probably not related (maybe it is) but gmail/googlecaldendar report that my user/pass is wrong (and i've tried many different combos for the username <email address hidden>, username

Your keyboard is giving out a different key code for enter. Thus our handling of it isn't picking it up. can you give the output of xev when you press enter?

Oops, I misread your post, disregard above...

I'm having the same issue. Here's what xev shows for the "Enter" key:

KeyPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x2a00001,
    root 0x59, subw 0x0, time 11726386, (-192,544), root:(1064,594),
    state 0x10, keycode 36 (keysym 0xff0d, Return), same_screen YES,
" XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
" XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x2a00001,
    root 0x59, subw 0x0, time 11726482, (-192,544), root:(1064,594),
    state 0x10, keycode 36 (keysym 0xff0d, Return), same_screen YES,
" XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
    XFilterEvent returns: False

For reference, Fn-Enter gives:

KeyPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x2a00001,
    root 0x59, subw 0x0, time 11764674, (114,296), root:(1370,346),
    state 0x10, keycode 108 (keysym 0xff8d, KP_Enter), same_screen YES,
" XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
" XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x2a00001,
    root 0x59, subw 0x0, time 11764755, (114,296), root:(1370,346),
    state 0x10, keycode 108 (keysym 0xff8d, KP_Enter), same_screen YES,
" XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
    XFilterEvent returns: False

I'm on a Dell Inspiron E1405 running Hardy. uname -a gives:
Linux baltar 2.6.24-18-generic #1 SMP Wed May 28 20:27:26 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

If there's any more info I can give I'd be happy to help. (I didn't see any sort of debug or verbose options for GNOME Do, and running it from the terminal shows no output after the initial startup.)

I have the same problem and I can't find a way out. Ubuntu Hardy, Gnome do 0.5, everything seems fine except when hitting enter nothing happens. Tried all plugins and actions. This is the log of xev for pressing and releasing enter button. I'm on a Dv6000 Hp notebook.

Can you help with this problem?
