I'm using Garuda's distro and the latte-dock on the KDE plasma desktop, I'm french which means I'm using "azerty" keyboard layout.
When I use the GUI to change my shortcuts in
shortcuts > Latte Dock > New instance for Entry 1
I press "Meta+é". "é" is the special character of the "2" key (above "a" and "z")
I don't know why but the system auto correct it by entering "É" instead (maybe for design purposes ?). Therefore the shortcut becomes "Meta+É" instead of the "Meta+é" I just entered.
The problem is that the "É" key doesn't exists ! Thus the shortcut is not working.
I thought : "ok it's not a problem, I'm gonna edit the config file".
Thus I went and edited
Saved the file.
I check the GUI : nothing changed. I try the shortcut : not working
Apparently for the changes to be taken into account you have to restart kglobalaccel (see the last comment here : https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/6u0wo7/configuring_kde_by_editing_the_config_files/)
So in a terminal I typed
kquitapp5 kglobalaccel && sleep 2s && kglobalaccel5&
Which automatically updates my kglobalshortcutrc file and put back the É instead of the é character !
I'm new to linux and I'm trying to troubleshoot this issue for 3 days already, can someone help me ?
