Qt Creator 3.5.1: Repeating keys problem

  • Hello All,

    I am using Qt Creator 3.5.1 built on Qt 5.5.1 on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS 64 bit in a XFCE session:

    Linux ubuntu 4.4.0-137-generic #163-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 24 13:14:43 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I have a problem that during typing, sometimes keys repeat. For example, if I am writing 'Hello' I sometimes get 'Helloooooooo'. Very annoying.

    Strange thing is that only Qt Creator seems to be affected. In a console or in NetBeans C++, I cannot reproduce the problem. I have not been able to solve the problem.

  • Qt Creator 3.5 is quite old. Maybe try if your problem persists with a newer Qt Creator, like 4.7 from our prebuilt binaries at
