Description Dimitrios Charalampidis 2015-06-29 18:06:04 MSD
Description of problem:

I have created the following xbindkeys configuration:
# Mute/Unmute
"pactl set-sink-mute @DEFAULT_SINK@ toggle"
   b:16

# Start increasing volume
"watch -n 0.1 amixer sset Master 3%+"
   b:13

# Stop increasing volume
"killall watch"
   release + b:13


# Start decreasing volume
"watch -n 0.1 amixer sset Master 3%-"
   b:15

# Stop decreasing volume
"killall watch"
   release + b:15

To control what my mouse buttons do. Everything works great on en_us layout, but when changing to another layout (I have tested Bulgaria and Greek) the "release" event does not work!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.8.5-3-rosa2014.1.x86_64

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change keyboard layout to non-English.
2. Press the respective mouse buttons.
