Thanks! Works great now :)

I updated the package to GTK+ 3.22.19 and applied a patch similar to what vladimir.pinchuk suggested, this might fix your issue, @Gruentee (can't see that for myself though since I can't reproduce the problem).

Could you please check if the bug still occurs for you?

Gruentee commented on 2017-09-07 18:22

Could someone please add the mentioned changes to a patch file?

twilinx's fix does indeed the job. Thank you.

I had the same problem as Gruentee (it appeared for the "save a copy" dialogue in the atril/evince pdf viewer). The solution proposed by twilinx worked for me.

Gruentee commented on 2017-05-16 07:54

@twilinx: I'm not sure which file to edit or how to alter the patch file to do that.

Also, regarding the wording confusion, I can confirm that typeahead gets activated, because the typical entry at the right bottom of the dialog appears.

So this is going to be hard for me to debug… Could you maybe try to see if vladimir.pinchuk's "dirty fix proposal" below works for you? If it does, could you try and see if you can make the fix less dirty, e.g. is it also enough to do something like:

if (!event->is_modifier) {
gtk_widget_grab_focus (priv->browse_files_tree_view);
gboolean ret;
g_signal_emit_by_name (priv->browse_files_tree_view, "key-press-event", event, &ret);

Also, can you confirm that typeahead (only searches the current directory, what this package restores) and not search-as-you-type (searches recursively, the thing that annoys you if you install this package) gets activated? Just to make sure that we're not confusing terminology here, because I totally confused those terms that in the past ;)

Thanks for the quick response. The exact process you described fails for me when pressing either CTRL or Shift key: focus immediately switches from the filename entry to the folder listing.

@Bachsau, @vladimir.pinchuk, @Gruentee:
I am struggling to reproduce the issue you mention, I don't seem to understand where the problem is. Could you please give a more detailed description?

I'm trying to reproduce it by opening gedit, hitting Ctrl+S and then typing something with the Shift key pressed. For me, the text is displayed in the filename entry at the top, which is what I would consider to be expected behaviour. Where exactly does this fail for you?

Gruentee commented on 2017-05-14 17:15

@Bachsau @vladimir.pinchuk
I can confirm this issue, it's really annoying. I'm not able to type various special characters.

Is there a fix, or a bug report?
