Re: x2go keybindings / toggle key

Can any of the developers chime in on this?

The ctrl+alt+k feature in your link doesn't sound like what I describe at all.

I think this would be the same as ctrl+alt+k (http://www.nomachine.com/ar/view.php?ar_id=AR03C00172) in the nomachine client. I too miss such a feature and hopefully this could be enabled in a future release.

Best regards,

Hi,

I would like to get the following functionality from X2go.

I would like to use a key press to toggle between the 'keyboard focus'. I would press a key on the keyboard and the focus would toggle between the client and the server. That way I could keep the keybindings the same for both machines.

For example: I use i3wm on both machines. Windows key + fn key switches workspaces on both machines. I would like to press a key to toggle the focus between the client and server desktop. 

So maybe I would press " ` " and it would set the focus to the server and then all my subsequent key presses would affect the server desktop. When I want to return to my client desktop I would press " ` " and it would set the focus to the client.

I could change the keybindings for my window manager iteslf. In fact I may go this route if there is no solution for x2go. However I thought it might be easier to have a focus mechanisim in x2go.

Is this already a feature of x2go?  If so how do I implement it. Maybe I could write something for the wiki.

If not, would it be difficult to enable such functionality?
