Description markiewb 2016-02-13 13:30:41 UTC
Today, I created a new class in src/main/test/xxx/ and Netbeans stopped responding to my keyboard.
I can't type in a Java file or XML. Control F1 , ESC does not work inside the IDE, but it's working on my other programs.
There is nothing of note in the messages.log

The strange thing is I can copy using Control C in my Output and paste in another app. This does not work from a XML or Java file.

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and 1.8.0_72

Solution A)
<code>ibus-daemon -rd</code> -

Solution B)
setting <code>XMODIFIERS</code> to <code>""</code> fixes the issue.

The <code>bin/netbeans shell script is the obvious place for this :
<code>export XMODIFIERS=""</code>
