Ctrl-Alt-Shift-F12

Post by carandol » Sun Sep 28, 2008 2:36 pm

The Ctrl-Alt-Shift-F12 command, which is supposed to allow you to type in the hex number of a Unicode character, is interpreted (in Linux Mint Elyssa, at least), as the Gnome command Ctrl-Alt-F12, which switches off the GUI. This leaves one with a black screen and a feeling of panic :o Luckily, one can return to normal with Ctrl-Alt-F7. But definitely a bug to be fixed, because it's really bad for the blood pressure! :)

Hello,

I referred that problem to our developers and will inform you here as soon as there are any news.

You're right. The keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F12 works only under Windows. Under Linux, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+X has to be used. Manuals will be updated accordingly.
