            Bug ID: 6309
           Summary: Aphabetic keys don't work with SDL2 on Linux
           Product: ioquake3
           Version: GIT MASTER
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Misc
          Assignee: zachary at ioquake.org

Since the upgrade to SDL2 I am unable to use alphabetic keys in the client.
Other keys seem to work, and I can type text just fine if I pull down the

I use current ioquake3 git on 64-bit Arch Linux with all features enabled and
USE_INTERNAL_LIBS=0. My library versions are:

core/curl 7.37.1-1
extra/freetype2 2.5.3-2
extra/libjpeg-turbo 1.3.1-1
extra/libvorbis 1.3.4-1
extra/openal 1.16.0-1
extra/opus 1.1-1
community/opusfile 0.5-1
extra/sdl2 2.0.3-1
extra/speex 1.2rc1-4
core/zlib 1.2.8-3

I think that with SDL1 it was also somewhat weird. The alphabetic keys often
registered as WORLD_NN instead of the usual q, w, r, ...

There is nothing suspicious in the console log. About SDL it only says

    SDL using driver "x11"

I suppose this looks like an SDL bug, but how does typing in the console work
