Aimed to walkaround bug with java gui apps: "Hotkeys not functional in non-latin keyboard layout in 13.10 - 16.04" https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/1226962

Swing java apps (IntelliJ Idea, Oracle SQL Developer etc.)

Copy to any directory 2 files:

LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

javassist-3.12.1.GA.jar

add

-javaagent:[path to directory with jar files]/LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

to java run string

Examples:

SoapUI

Add line to soapui.sh.

JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS java -javaagent:[path to directory with jar files]/LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

Oracle SQL Developer

Add line to sqldeveloper/ide/bin/jdk.conf.

AddVMOption -javaagent:[path to directory with jar files]/LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

IntelliJ Idea

-javaagent:[path to directory with jar files]/LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

Eclipse

Copy to any directory 2 files:

Advanced part

Modify kaybindings for swing apps in case non russian layout

If you want another mapping you can create it by yourself:

  • after that utily begin print to console entered symbol codes using format

XKeysymPatchAgent.keysym=[hex code]

  • then create file using format [hex code]=[latin code of the same button]

Example:

6ca=Q

6c3=W

etc.

  • replace hex codes wuth yours
  • use following option to run app with custom mapping:

-javaagent:[path to directory with jar files]/LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar=[your mapping file]

Modify keybindings for swt in case non russian layout

  • add following line to eclipse.ini

-javaagent:[path]/LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar=swt:print

  • then grab codes and create properties file with mapping

[your locale key]=[latin key]

  • then run eclipse wuth following config

-javaagent:[path]/LinuxJavaFixes-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar=swt:[path to your mapping file]
