I have a very strange issue with TDM on Fedora 27. I have freshly installed 2.05 (and for comparison the 2.06 beta, only just heard about it) on a freshly installed Fedora 27 system ... and when I launch TDM from the command line the command line console continues to get my key presses!
Eventually I have found that if I have a second application running, then I can apparently Alt-Tab to it (ok, not quite stock, I've enabled Alternatetab in gnome-tweak-tool) and I get keyboard events and everything works properly ... in 2.06 beta, even sound works out of the box!
Is this a known problem with a more sensible known fix or workaround?
A couple of explanations for clarity.
- If I don't launch a game, but just start tdm, type keys, exit (using the menu), then all the keys I pressed are visible on my terminal application.
- When I have another application available it seems that after I press Alt-Tab the keyboard events go to TDM as they ought to.
This looks like a pretty obscure interaction with the Gnome desktop!
