    Hello!

    Reporting back:

    • disabled settings you had me override initially
    • replaced the bin files as instructed, moved virgin ones out of bin

     

    If I enable grab keyboard for a macOS connection it now successfully sends over the SUPER key + tab, so I can switch tasks! I can also copy paste via shortcut which is a HUGE time saver. Thank you! 🙂 I can now properly use my old headless mac.

     

    Just for fun I also tried it connecting to a 10.15.6 macbook pro, worked as it should.

    Nothing changed between my initial report and now. Therefore NoMachine still does not send any more than 1 single modifier keystroke over to the client. It doesn’t matter which one it is. Any modifier + modifier or modifier + [a-z0-9] either end up being interpreted as simply [a-z0-9] without the modifier, or in the case double modifiers it is responded to by the host alone, if a valid shortcut. Otherwise, it gets ignored – aka never makes it to the client regardless if NoMachine has to fight the OS’ active shortcuts or not.

    For example: Super + C does nothing in Gnome 40, there’s no shortcuts assigned. If I type it in NoMachine it gets ignored. Pasting doesn’t contain the text selected on the MacOS client (yes copy paste works otherwise).

    Oh ok, that’s good if you’re aware. Yes, you are correct, I am using Fedora 34 which comes with Wayland and GNOME 40 by default.

    The workaround doesn’t have any effect – shortcuts are still only active locally in Linux.

    $ gsettings get org.gnome.mutter.wayland xwayland-grab-access-rules
    ['nxplayer.bin']
    
    # started as
    $ /usr/NX/bin/nxplayer --activegrab

    Wow you guys are super tough on moderation here. Takes 3 days for a moderator to approve a post. I better find a hobby because this is going to take a while 🤣

    Hi, no they don’t work. I tried it in fullscreen, windowed, another monitor, virtual desktop, with grab and without grab. What works 100% of the time is the host shortcuts (gnome 40 responds to both ALT+TAB with SUPER+TAB). If I hold down 1 modifier key alone, it will get passed to remote but following that up with any other key results in failure.
