Bug Description


if I press super key, the scopes home does not appear. In OTA-11 it worked as it should, but in OTA-12 it doesn't work.

I use M10 FHD tablet with OTA-12 and external keyboard Logitech k810.

Weird. I did a Super key fix in Mir recently however AFAIK that regression both occurred and was fixed between releases and never made it onto any devices.

That was bug 1602966. However bug 1602966 only ever existed in the Mir 0.24 series and has been fixed already before the release of Mir 0.24.0.

more details and how to trigger from this bug report

arale/rc proposed

open a random app, long press the home button to reveal the launcher, let it go. now short tap/press on the home button to go to the home scope. doesn't work.

also, i think it would be better to replace the behavior of the home button, instead of revealing the launcher(makes no sense on a phone) to trigger the app switcher
