[Linux/GTK Q] How are the arrow keys, pgup/pgdn, & bksp read differently than other keys? [message #505152] Sun, 27 December 2009 18:26 Go to next message

Hi.

I use a handwriting recognition application for GNU/Linux entitled
CellWriter:

http://code.google.com/p/cellwriter/

Unfortunately there is an issue regarding its use with Eclipse:

http://code.google.com/p/cellwriter/issues/detail?id=27& colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20For%20Priority%20Owner%20Summar y

I'm trying to determine why 7 keys of its on-screen virtual keyboard
seem invisible to Eclipse whereas the other keys appear just fine. The 7
keys that seem to have no apparent effect when pressed are:

Left, Right, Up, Down, Page Up, Page Down, & Backspace

What could it be that makes these keys so special?

Thank you for your time,
Elizabeth B.
