damaged Linux settings
« on: December 01, 2021, 02:36:56 pm »
Hello,
I think I have damaged my editor settings.

I can not add / or use Strg-c/v, or delete something in the IDE.

e.g. add a / opens a pop-up with instead of of adding /.

In the past all keys are working.

Please help me.

Thank you,
Reinhard

You can try disabling the "Keyboard shortcuts" plugin or renaming the default.conf file (it should be in a hidden folder under your home directory) forcing C::B to create a fresh one.

What happens if you press / in a console, text editor or web browser?

Only Codeblocks has the problem, LibreOffice and other are working.

Maybe you can try this (not guaranteed to work):

Exit Code::Blocks

Back up ~/.config/codeblocks/default.cbKeyBinder20.conf  and remove or rename the original

Restart Code::Blocks and see if the shortcuts are working. If not, restore the backed up file and look for other solutions

Hello,

I found out the problem: The *.cpp file I want to edit was read only. If I set it to writeable it works.
For me is this a very strange behavior of C::B. My Linux is Debian 10.

Can someone explain?
