Alt + Control key shotcuts not working

Hi all,

I am suddenly having the 'alt' key issue on Mint 18.2 with Houdini 16.0.657.
Was fine until recently and it's driving me nuts! Have tried with an earlier build, but the problem persists.
I also noticed that I'm unable to control click on shelf items as well, for example to create a camera from the current view.

I have gone through a host of ways to disable the mouse+alt defaults in Cinnamon and gnome, but the issue still remains.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be the cause, or is anyone else experiencing this as well?

Matt.

I'm on Mint 18.2, and I haven't noticed this; are you talking about Alt + clicking moving windows?

Yep - just got the issue on Ubuntu 16.10. Haven't tried to fix it yet.

Hey Goldleaf - nope, it seems the alt, control and even shift keys no longer work in the viewport and network editor of Houdini for shortcuts such as alt+drag to copy a node, control-clicking a shelf tool etc. I have since noticed that holding shift to add to or control to subtract from selections in the viewport no longer works either.

And Marty - have found that the same issue is present in CentOS 7 as well.

It would seem there was an update somewhere that has borked things... Most frustrating!

Matt.

seems like it's only affecting tablets - the mouse is working fine with the shortcuts in H16.0.695, Ubuntu 17.04

Yep - Marty, quite correct. Mouse works fine, Wacom doesn't.
At least that's a start to trying to fix this - thanks!

Matt.
