I’m not sure whether this is a bug, a feature, or an OS problem: Keyboard shortcuts containing the control key (like Ctrl-S, Ctrl-N, Ctrl-O) behave strange in Renoise on my Ubuntu Linux 12.04 installation. On my MacBook Pro they behave as I would expect them to behave. So I guess those shortcuts should work the same on Linux.
Say I want to save my work by pressing Ctrl+S then Renoise just plays the note under key S instead of saving. Though it works when I hold the control key several seconds (~3 sec.) before pressing the S key. It appears as if it takes some time until Renoise recognizes that the control key is pressed.
I tried the shortcut in other programs and it works there so it does not seem to be a hardware or a general OS problem.
Is it a known problem and what can I do about it. It’s kind of annoying for my work flow because I press Ctrl-S quite often while working on a song.
