Keyboard AltGr key not operational with any second key in Lazarus IDE, with

MS Wired Keyboard 600 (model 1576)
Lazarus 2.0.10
x86_64-linux-gtk2
Debian 11.2

It works fine with "gedit" editor and the terminal.

Is there some kind of related settings in Lazarus IDE I should be aware of?

Martin_fr:
What exactly is "not operational"? And are "any second key" other control keys, or letter/digit keys?

Usually the IDE treats AltGr as alt + ctrl.

So then it depends, what your typing, and if it conflicts with other key combos.
For example alt + ctrl + w opens the watches window. But that means, if your local keyboard has some other "input" assigned to that, that other "input" is blocked.

MaxCuriosus:
By not operational I mean that AltGr plus a second key doesn't yield anything. For example with that particular keyboard I should get certain special characters as follow:

AltGr + 2 --> @
AltGr + 3 --> #
AltGr + e --> €
AltGr + à --> {
AltGr + $ --> }
AltGr + è --> [
AltGr + ¨ --> ]

but I don't. Likewise with Alt + Ctrl + .

Hi!

That depends on the keyboard driver of the OS. For german keyboards you got for example this connection:

AltGr q --> @

Test your AltGr key binding in some simple editor like joe.

This is a bit of a minefield. I've been looking recently at the <Shift><AltGr> "compose key" functionality, and it varies enormously over different WMs and apps.
