From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801 BuildID: 2001080104 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Remove all ui.key user_prefs from prefs.js 2. Add this line: `user_pref("ui.key.accelKey", 224);' as said on the customization page at http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html#keys 3. Start mozilla The accelerators are no more available (not at least on Ctrl, Window or Alt keys). Here's some things that might be helpful: % xmodmap -pk | egrep 'Meta|Alt' 64 0xffe7 (Meta_L) 113 0xffe8 (Meta_R) 115 0xffe9 (Alt_L) 116 0xffea (Alt_R) % xmodmap -pm xmodmap: up to 2 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses): shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e) lock Caps_Lock (0x42) control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x6d) mod1 Alt_L (0x73), Alt_R (0x74) mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d) mod3 mod4 Meta_L (0x40), Meta_R (0x71) mod5 Scroll_Lock (0x4e)
So is the problem just that you can't find the key on your keyboard that sets the Meta modifier? (the Alt keys don't do it in your case, as you can see from the xmodmap output...). Also, from the page you cite: "meta is not yet implemented on all platforms" ccing akkana who may know whether this should be working on Linux x86 or not.
It doesn't work. There's some weirdness in the way gtk deals with the meta key; some versions of gtk don't handle it at all, others do. There's a patch in bug 43433 (the summary says solaris but it applies to any platform that uses the gtk version of the widget library, just is more important to solaris users since they're used to using meta for some operations) which works on some platforms but not others. It hasn't been tested/updated in quite a while ... perhaps modern versions of gtk are more consistent and it should be retested and checked in. It would be great if someone could try it and report back.
Who should own this bug? Akkana, will you take it?
