Xgalaga Keyboard Controls don't work in KDE

I’ve never gotten xgalaga (included on the oss repository) to work under openSUSE since at least version 10.1. I also have a Debian machine and it works perfectly in a Konsole window there.

I can move the ship with the arrow keys, but the spacebar doesn’t work to fire, so I’m quickly annihilated. lol!

Thanx in advance. Happy Holidays!

I’m bumping this up because it doesn’t work in 11.3 Milestone7, either…

Hello rschaffter,

I tried it myself and got the same problem.
Nothing works except the arrow keys.

After some searching I found this patch: ports/59195: xgalaga no keyboard control under kde.
If you want to use this patch you need to compile it from source.
I haven’t tried it myself and it’s pretty old so I don’t know if it will work.

If you’re going to compile it from source and have any questions feel free to ask.

Good luck!:wink:

Thanx, I’ll give it a whirl.

The funny thing is, it works fine under Debian…
