Description

I've recently updated from 3.9 to 4.0.1 on Ubuntu. I've previously set some keyboard shortcuts for changing songs etc, but now pressing the same buttons leads to app freeze and subsequently force quit. I've looked through the settings and it seems there are no options to modify or disable the Hotkeys, is the settings totally gone in this version?

The Qt interface does not support global hotkeys currently.

You'll have to give more information for this bug report to actually be useful. Start with recreating the issue with a fresh user account and without a desktop environment running. Then give exact steps to reproduce the issue, and a debugger backtrace showing where in the code the freeze occurred.

#2 Updated by Xashyar X 4 months ago

I guess if the new interface doesn't support global hotkeys yet, upon upgrading to version 4.x it should discard or remove any previously set hotkey input configurations to avoid hangs.

Hello, John

I've discovered that this issue is not related to HotKeys.

I used '/' and '*' (on NumLock) as HotKeys before on Ubuntu.

I have Audacious on a completely new setup on Manjaro (previously on Ubuntu) without any setup hotkeys, but whenever I press one of the aforementioned keys the app freezes.

Thank you for the additional details. I can reproduce a freeze with the '*' (asterisk) key but still nothing with '/' (slash).

Yup that is true, It's just the '*' key.

Thanks for the quick fix!
