#6092 closed defect (fixed)

Alt+F4 triggers closing the game when it shouldn't

Reported by: Imarok Owned by: wraitii
Priority: Should Have Milestone: Alpha 25

Description (last modified by Imarok)

The Alt + F4 hotkey gets always triggered when the keys are pressed and not only when someone starts pressing the keys.

This was not broken in A23b.

To reproduce:

  • Open 0ad
  • Open some other application (might be 0ad again)
  • Press Alt+ F4
  • both windows get closed

(You can also close 20 instances of 0ad at once by holding Alt+F4 for some seconds)

Edit: The issue was introduced by Phab:rP24215 / r24215.

Please, specify your OS. I can't reproduce it on Windows.

comment:2 by Imarok, 3 years ago

Interesting. I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 with Gnome.

Maybe caused by the same issue as #6064.

comment:4 by wraitii, 3 years ago

I guess the problem here is more that hotkeys are sent to all applications (for some reason, this seems perhaps a bit broken) on Ubuntu/Gnome, and 0 A.D. processes it even in the background?

comment:5 by Imarok, 3 years ago

Might be. But it works correctly with A23b. So the bug was introduced by changes in 0ad.

On Fedora with Wayland the issue does not occur.

wraitii opened an upstream issue for this:

Fix 0 A.D. quitting 'too fast' when it gains focus after alt+F4

There appears to be an SDL issue with linux and X11 that causes Keydown events to be sent immediately when 0 A.D. gains focus. This can loead to Alt-F4 quitting 0 A.D. immediately upon focus gain, such as when another application was quit via Alt-F4.

The typical bug case was:

  • Open 0 A.D.
  • Open another app
  • Alt-F4 other app
  • 0 A.D. immediately receives alt-F4 as well and exits.

Since SLD handles this hotkey natively via SDL_QUIT, it seems easier to default to "no hotkey", as that fixes the problem.
