Key shortcuts not captured by Eve on Proton

When playing with Eve on Proton on Linux, I notice that some key shortcuts such as come to a stop with CTRL+SPACE or first midslot such as MWD activate with ALT_L-F1 don’t work if they’re bound to a shortcut on the desktop environment. For example CTRL+SPACE brings up my launcher search bar, or ALT_L-F1 brings up a overview of my virtual workspaces.

It seems the desktop environment processes the keybinds before Eve and Eve doesn’t use them even when set.

Is this a known problem with Proton and Eve? Is it Proton or is it Eve that’s at fault?

And no I don’t want to remap my desktop environment (or Eve) keybinds. Eve should process them first when it is foreground shouldn’t it?

This means I have to play Eve using the GUI controls and not use key shortcuts where there is a conflict.

Eve is full screen and set to foreground. DE is Cinnamon (based on Gnome). Proton 5.0-10 (and no I cannot run later Proton versions due to launching issues).

I’ve only seen this problem with Eve on Proton. No other game (yet).

I’m having the same problem with the key binds. At first it messed me up but the key is still set up the same way as if you played in Windows 10. The Alt_L-F1 is the same as Alt-F1 where Alt_L is reference to the Left Alt key. Don’t have to bind the key they are working well. I believe this is just a weird way proton identify the key bind.

The key that open the linux interface i just swapped them. I think linux system commands overruns the proton commands and this messes up the keys in game.
