Keyboard problem
« on: April 04, 2021, 05:30:46 PM »

Hi,

I just purchased the game. I'm on Ubuntu 20.04. I use DVORAK as a keyboard layout, so I'm used to switching to a QWERTY layout before opening a game.

Now the super weird thing, is that even if I boot it with the QWERTY layout, it still loads my DVORAK! I even tried rebooting my laptop in QWERTY mode, deleting the game folder and unpackaging it again... I still end up with the DVORAK layout lol.

Any idea on how I can resolve the issue?

Huh... I hope someone with more knowledge of desktop Linux can chime in. Unfortunately, I'm at a loss as to what to suggest.

(You *should* be able to rebind all the combat keys, though! And aside from that, I don't think anything should be particularly uncomfortable with the DVORAK layout. Maybe not optimal, but not on the level of WASD in combat.)

Just did a little test - on my system with KDE game uses primary layout as input regardless of secondary,tertiary etc. chosen in window manager. So set qwerty as primary temporarily and test if it is working properly.
