Cool, thanks!

So I've rejigged the way the keyboard is handled in X11 with Qt, and am attempting to push a new build now.

I can easily see how I'd made an error with escape but, in any event, have eliminated a whole bunch of the sort of magic key code constants that would be likely to cause a mistake. Also it looks like the keyboard I use is atypical — not surprising with hindsight, being a Mac keyboard and a virtual machine — so it's probably for the best that I've ditched hard-coded key codes.

I suspect a further can of worms may be forthcoming re:non-English layouts, but I'll deal with that if/when it arises.

If you installed via your distribution's software listing / app store / similar, then the update should just automatically install. I don't know exactly what the normal timing of that is, but I think it's usually a silent background operation.

Compiled from sources and CTRL/SHIFT are working for me under Fedora/KDE in both SDL and Qt!
Noticed that Qt doesn't have any sound (tested Oric and Apple) but I'm not sure if it's just by me.
Thanks for update!

Thanks. I will have a look later. (It's on my other computer.) I think I can do a manual update if it hasn't done it automatically.

That definitely sounds like a bug. I'll file it and look into it.

I had to uninstall and reinstall. The CTRL works now. ESC works in part. Some ESC codes were working. Others didn't seem to. I couldn't get ESC A to produce red.

Tried again today and got it to work OK. Not sure why it was being difficult before.

Can anyone convert these for me to Oric dsk files?
They are Sedoric DOS 2 and 2.1 master disks with a few added things, I think.

Trying a newer version of Greaseweazle software - not sure if it's any different.

The Sed2 disk has a couple of bad sectors but I don't think it is in an area that matters. Sed2.1 looks OK.
