menu and keyboard focus

Bug Description

I recently upgraded to ubuntu 22.04 and updated diodon to 1.13.0~ubuntu22.04.1

I'm running the stock WM (Gnome).

Since the upgrade, when I hit the diodon keyboard short (Ctrl+Alt+V on my system), the popup menu don't catch focus so I'm not able to use the arrow keys to select the clipboard entry I need. I'm not able to close the menu by hitting the ESC key either.

The only way to close the menu is to select an entry with the mouse.

What do I miss ?

Thanks for reporting. I have noticed this as well. This seems to be an issue with Wayland.

So when for instance the Gnome Terminal is open and you press the Diodon hotkey, the menu won't catch the focus. If you open Firefox (which by default uses XWayland not native Wayland support) and then press the Diodon hotkey the focus is correct.

Also, if you change to Ubuntu Xorg session during login (instead of Ubuntu Wayland) focus also works.

I haven't figured out yet how this could be fixed. Any suggestions are welcome.

Changed in diodon:
