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).
