I recently reassigned my Caps Lock key into a Hyper key (by adding
Option "XkbOptions" "caps:hyper" to
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf) and it worked well. However, setting custom shortcuts using this hyper key doesn’t go so well. I tried, for example, to set
hyper+a to run
rofi -show run from the KDE system settings, but when I do that, the GUI shows that I’ve pressed a button called “ៀ”, which is U+17C0, a Khmer language character. Subsequently, pressing hyper does show the menu (without pressing the “a” key!), and if I try to set another shortcut using
hyper+w for example, it asks me if I want to reassign ៀ.
I use fcitx5, I don’t speak Khmer, and I can’t think of any reason why the Khmer language is involved in this.
EDIT: I just got the ability to add images. So here it is:
