I installed Manjaro a few days ago and am an average linux user,
I’ve got this issue where I was playing a mmo and noticed that the combination alt or shift + é (2 on qwerty) wasn’t working on my azerty keyboard, the key works separately and works with ctrl
I used the Manjaro Logs Helper to get some logs

Thanks for the help!
Hello, after I’ve been searching for the last few days, I found some directions…
I tried to simulate the shorcut and viewing the logs via
xdotool keydown "Alt_L"; xdotool key "XF86LogGrabInfo"; xdotool keydown "eacute"; xdotool key "XF86LogGrabInfo"; xdotool keyup "eacute" keyup "Alt_L"
and got this logs : h!ttps://pastebin.com/VKtdM8g0 (removes ! char)
The interesting part seems to be
Information [ 18273.657] (II) Printing all currently active device grabs:
Information [ 18273.657] Active grab 0x41533981 (core) on device 'Virtual core keyboard' (3):

I then tried to kill “kglobalaccel5” and my key combination was working again, but it seems that another process is calling it to access the global shortcut.
Is their a way to know what software is calling “kglobalaccel5” ?
Welcome to Manjaro!
- Go to System Settings
- in the search box type
Alt like below:
Unfortunately, you’ll have to do that for all 3 categories…
Edit: The specific issue was with Alt+~ which was on the same key as é and
kwin was using that. After that was removed everything worked fine again…
