I have an ubuntu 20.04 desktop connecting to another Ubuntu 20.04 desktop, both with NoMachine 7.9.2 package. I use NoMachine in window mode, not full screen.
The problem I have is that whenever I push the Windows key, the combination is applied to my local system, not the remote. If I manually select the “Grab the keyboard input” in the menu panel, then windows key is sent to the remote, but when I left the NoMachine window the “grab the keyboard input” is marked as unselected and I have to manually select it again.
That wouldn’t be a great problem if Ctrl+Alt+K was grabbing the keyboard, but although I use this combination, keyboard is not grabbed and I have to select the option from the menu panel.
Any help? Thank you.May 16, 2022 at 14:42 #38634
Hi, we are checking this and will update the topic soon.July 18, 2022 at 13:51 #39306
Can you update to the latest version 7.10, both sides, and tell us if you are still experiencing the issue?July 19, 2022 at 06:32 #39327
I’m already running version 7.10.1-2 on both sides. I don’t remember how I downloaded it this version, because in your web latest version is 7.10.1_1.July 19, 2022 at 11:29 #39344
‘Grab the keyboard input’ option enables the so-called ‘passive grab’ of the keyboard, but it is also possible to enable the ‘active grab’. In order to try this, please quit the NoMachine player application completely (you can do this from the NoMachine icon in the tray) and start it again from the terminal using the following command:
After that, whilst the session is running, go back to the menu and select the box for enabling ‘grab the keyboard’. Does this help?July 31, 2022 at 20:42 #39518jigglywigglyParticipant
This only happens on X11 strangely, Wayland seems fine.
I am using Ubuntu 22.04
I tried using
But it did not help, the super key still is not passed through to the host. I am using NoMachine 7.10.1
The “Grab the keyboard input” is selectedAugust 3, 2022 at 08:40 #39549
Jigglywiggly, this could be a different issue?
Pressing the Super key doesn’t work, you say. To do exactly what? Is Ubuntu 22.04 the client or is it the server? More details about your set-up (OS, version and NoMachine products) would be useful. Also, what kind of session are you running?August 4, 2022 at 09:25 #39566jigglywigglyParticipant
Ah, I wasn’t entirely correct. There is no difference between X11/Wayland. Key combos like alt + tab are forwarded correctly.
But the Windows/super key is not forwarded to the host.
The host is Ubuntu 20.04, client is Ubuntu 22.04October 18, 2022 at 16:26 #40812
What are you using the Super key for exactly?October 19, 2022 at 10:04 #40827
For example, to open main menu.October 19, 2022 at 14:00 #40829
We’ve tried with the latest version (NoMachine 8) and can’t reproduce it.
Enabling ‘Grab the keyboard” in the Player settings captures all keys, including the Super/Win key.
See the image in section 2.1 of this document: https://kb.nomachine.com/DT07S00236#2.1. Do you have the box “Grab the keyboard input” checked?
Note however, that if your connection file (.nxs file) shows
<option key="Grab keyboard input" value="false" />, this setting will override your global setting (configured in Player as in the previous document). You can check what’s in the .nxs file by locating it in the directory defined in the ‘Connections and recordings’ field from the Settings -> Player -> Folders panel of the User Interface.
