Post by thekillerbanana » Tue Apr 02, 2019 12:40 am

Hey wine users! :D
I've been trying to run a game called Spore on wine stable, it runs nicely and smoothly, however, my keyboard does not work! well, if I click COMMAND+key it works, but keys like space and shift do not work even if I click command! could someone please help me with this? thank you!
wine stable 4.0
Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6
I've tried creating a clean wine prefix, wine devel, and wine staging, restarting computer, and I am just seriously desperate!!!
PLEASE Help!

As I didn’t ask you before I’m going to ask directly.

Is it just some keys are not working or no keys are working.
As wine on macOS does map the keys differently then the native Mac keyout would be.

If that’s the problem like CMD not functions as expected and shift, both can be remapped since wine-3.17.

the only keys working are: command and esc, but if I do click command and another key that didn't work, the key works, except with space or shift etc. Is this a known issue?

I have not heard of this problem on macOS before (Linux yes), nobody on the forms I frequent have asked about this issue.

I don't care if no one asked before, but I have the issue, or I wouldn't be asking for help, so if you have an idea, please tell me1 :(
