Yesterday, I was typing while running QubesUpdate, and Qubes suddenly logged me out when I may or may not have hit a copy operation (Ctrl+C , Ctrl + Shift +C , Ctrl+V , Ctrl+Shift+V) between Qubes I was logged out of Qubes. Perhaps the QubesUpdate was finished and the timing of the copy operation coincided, but is it possible for Qubes to be logged out suddenly?
I am using the latest version of my QubesOS, 4.2.0-rc3.
I have had the same thing happen.
I just thought I fat-fingered a logout shortcut, does any shortcut with X (ctrl, shift, ctrl+shift) logout?
Thank you. I don’t have any shortcut commands set specifically for myself, but I think that such shortcuts are set by the keyboard operation on the QubesOS side. As for the keyboard, I was hitting the keys in the lower left compartment. It is a mystery to me, but I will see how it works while using it as usual a little more.
Hi @Nakaya_kita ,
if you use XFCE (the default Desktop Environment), you can check the current default shortcuts in the XFCE Keyboard setting. In Qubes OS 4.1, this setting tool is in Q menu > System Tools > Keyboard, see the Application shortcuts tab.
For example, Ctrl + Alt + L do a session logout. I know this shortcut is far from Ctrl + Shift + C/V, but :
- the session logout shortcut could be different in Qubes OS 4.2
- another shortcut could be nearer, check the other entries in the Application shortcuts tab
- your keyboard layout could be different and impact
Just an idea…
Thank you. Hmmm, it doesn’t look like I pressed the L key, but but as you can see in the captured image, due to the key setting of the shortcut in 4.2.0-rc3, I have to use Ctrl+Alt+L to log out.
The keyboard has a Japanese key layout, and I think the L key is the same as where the L key is on the English layout. by design of QubesOS, it may have been a key typo on my part to think this far. it doesn’t seem like dom0 has been hijacked.
