Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

for security with X there is the ~/.Xauthority file and the xauth command.  i assume xdotool has to establish authenticity and authority over the X protocol connection (limited by xhost) like any other X app must.  but is that good enough?

i did read this in the xdotool man page:

Sending keystrokes to a specific window uses a different API than simply typing to the active window. If you specify 'xdotool type --window 12345 hello' xdotool will generate key events and send them directly to window 12345. However, X11 servers will set a special flag on all events generated in this way (see XEvent.xany.send_event in X11's manual). Many programs observe this flag and reject these events.

i think that answers what i saw happen.

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

I was having this issue too. At first it seemed like only the inputs would be ignored when I was on XScreen 0.1 or 0.2 but then it started ignoring them on 0.0. I tried the xdotool key Ctrl+Alt+t on XS 0.1 and nothing happened then I did a xfsettingsd --replace and everything started working again for a short while. Sadly I've added a cronjob to constantly run xfsettingsd --replace &.
