Text Editor - Keys like '~', '"' and ''' doesn't work
TheArquitect last edited by TheArquitect
I installed the QT Creator 4.8.1 (5.12.1) in Manjaro 18.0 with xfce 4.13 in a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox)
Despite all editors I use in this environment work fine, the QT's Text Editor doesn't write some characters like ~" and '.
I check it in another virtual pc with the same OS and the results are the same.
I tried it on the pc with the Manjaro intalled as the main OS and it worked fine. Also in a Windows pc.
I used the Qt offline installer in all the cases.
What is happened and how can I fix it?
Hi @TheArquitect, which keyboard layout do you use?
@TheArquitect Do they work if you press the keys twice? If this is the case then select "without accent keys" in your keyboard configuration (or whatever the name is in Manjaro).

@aha_1980 I use the default configuration. You can find it on:
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbVariant" "alt-intl"
The interesting thing is it doesn't work only on virtual machine (VirtualBox). I installed the Manjaro in as a main OS and it works fine...

Try to remap those keys and check if it works
@TheArquitect Can you check in VirtualBox settings, if "Auto capture keyboard" (don't know how it's called in English, only have it in German here) is active? If not, please activate it. Helped me once when I had problems in my Windows guest.
Also, please try @jsulm's suggestion.
