|0001440||Zandronum||[All Projects] Bug||public||2013-07-31 07:30||2017-05-14 21:07|
|Platform||x64||OS||Arch Linux x86_64||OS Version||Rolling Release|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001440: Keyboard Freeze while Typing on Linux|
|Description||The keyboard sometimes freeze after opening the console using ` key, speaking using the T key or even opening the menu with the ESC key. The game proceeds normally in the background (as in multiplayer games), but is not accepting any kinds of input from keyboard and the only thing I could do was to close the window and exit the game.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Hitting ` or t in-game may cause the keyboard to freeze. It appears to occur randomly but I almost always encounter it at least once within 3 hours of playing session.|
|Additional Information||I'm running the pre-built executable for 64-bit Arch Linux with awesome WM. The problem is also present in the 1.0 version.|
|Do you by any chance live in an area that may be using an IME? If so this ZDoom bug report is related:http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=40117 [^] Voidmage has a patch for SDL on hand that fixes the issue for him, so if so, you might want to contact him.|

You are right, I do have ibus daemon running in the background. For now I will try running Zandronum with XMODIFIERS unset and see if it gets stuck again. For the record, I've been toggling the console and menu like mad for 5 minutes and haven't managed to freeze it so far. If that still doesn't work, I will try applying the patch from Voidmage.
As I noted in the forum thread, this bug is not specific to Zandronum as it also happens in GZDoom, so I reckon it probably affects other ZDoom-based ports as well.
|It affects any software using SDL 1.2. Just some trigger it more readily than others. The bug is fixed in SDL 2.0 and VoidMage basically ported the fix back to 1.2.|
|Marking this ticket as resolved (at least for now). Normally an issue like this would be marked as closed, but it would probably be a good idea for this to be easy to find in a search.|

Just noting, as of now the issue still persists in Linux systems since SDL apparently did not make a new release after the fix was backported to SDL 1.2.
So, if you experience this issue, you can resolve it by installing SDL from hg:
The newly installed SDL should take precedence over the system SDL 1.2 and the freezing should stop there.
This issue is already marked as resolved.
If you feel that is not the case, please reopen it and explain why.
